Here’s a terrifying track in honor of Día de los Muertos, courtesy of Javier from Shred, White and Blue, WNUR’s Handpicked metal show that runs Tuesday evenings 9-10PM CST.
Named after the infamous Countess Bathory, this track features Malefic from the band Xasthur on vocals. In order to get a very specific sound, Sunn O))) locked him in a casket while he was recording. Malefic is supposedly claustrophobic.
“Playing Golf (With My Flesh Crawling)” 45rpm Single (Fresh Records, 1979)
Happy Halloween listeners! Here’s a spooky track from (former) Freeform DJ and station Operations Manager Monica Yi:
The sporadic existence of Family Fodder began in 1979, with composer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Alig Pearce experimenting with tapes in a basement somewhere in London. The group’s sound takes energetic cues from concrète and psychedelia, blending noise from tape samples, dub mixing and chopped location recordings. “Playing Golf” shows the early intimations of Fodder’s rare form of inspired and hilariously morbid electronic post-punk.
Today’s track comes from Continental Drift DJ Kevin, who brings us a fantastic track from 1970s Indonesia!
A phenomenal track taken from a compilation of rare Indonesian funk and psychedelia from the 1970′s. Because of the extensive cultural repression of the Suharto regime, few outside of Indonesia were even aware of this song’s existence until very recently.
Welcome back to Track of the Day! Today’s pick comes from Rock Show music director Ethan Simonoff.
Alessandro Cortini’s “Forse Vol. 1″ was released earlier this year. This is the first release of three planned on Important Records. The entire series will consist of compositions by Cortini performed on the Buchla Music Easel. Cortini has worked most notably as a touring member of Nine Inch Nails and How To Destroy Angels. In addition to releasing music under his own name, he has also released music as blindoldfreak and with the band, SONOIO.
