Happy Halloween weekend! WXYC has lots in store for you this coming week to help keep things ~spooky~. Check it out:
Tune in to the Inside Track, tonight at 9pm, to hear a new mixtape from Malian DJ Sandji. This release features cut-up Malian pop music, Coupé Décalé, Hip Hop, Kuduro, and Naija Pop - common music for Balani Show, an informal street/block party controlled by an MC and DJ with kids’ games, dance contests, and acrobatic dance troupes. Getting up to 170 bpm at times, this will be pretty darn hype!
This week’s New Science Experience, tonight from 10pm to midnight, will be a special **Halloween Edition** and will feature some abrasive and terrifying music from several different genres (hip hop, house, footwork, acid, and more). Tune in to get scared!
“Is that folk?” That’s what you’ll be asking when you tune in to this week’s Orange County Special. You’ll here some rare music you’ve never heard before as well as some music you might not know what to think about right away. We’ll skirt around the very fringes of what’s considered folk, taking forays into folk-inspired jazz, classical, electronic, and avant-garde music. Tune in this Sunday from 11am to 1pm to hear it all!
Since this Saturday is Halloween and this Sunday is El Día de Los Muertos, this weekend's episode of Hell or High Water is dedicated to the poltergeists among us. Tune in this Sunday at 1pm to hear Wilson Library's Southern Folklife Collection's Mondo Zombie Boogaloo, a Yep Roc Records compilation featuring The Fleshtones, Southern Culture on the Skids, and Los Straitjackets. To further bait you into listening, song titles include "Ghoulman Confidential" and "Haunted Hipster."
And Monday at 9pm, on the Outside Track, we’ll delve into the fifth LP from drone project Infinite Body aka Kyle Parker. Avolition is shimmering drone sourced primarily from organ music and cut-up and collaged vocal samples.
