Transistor Radio for the week of February 24-March 15, 2016
This week Andy Miles has the final two installments of 15 Songs' six-part look back at some of the best music of 2015. Tune in to hear tracks from Shamir, Kendrick Lamar, Kurt Vile, Wilco, Panda Bear, Youth Lagoon, and many more. You can find the full series here.
On In Store: Selections From Transistor's Live Performance Archive, host Jon Monteverde has a 2013 set from Project Film, the "precocious and awkward duo" of long-time friends Sam McAllister and Megan Frestedt. Their first record, 'Chicago,' was released in 2010 and their latest, 'Different Rooms,' was released in late 2014. They make indie pop music with lots of guitars and lots of synths.
Episode 10 of the White City Cinema Radio Hour consists of three conversations: first, host Michael Smith talks to critic Scott Pfeiffer about the lineup of the forthcoming Chicago European Union Film Festival at the Gene Siskel Film Center (with an extended discussion of new films by Chantal Akerman and Athina Rachel Tsangari). Then Onion City Experimental Film and Video Film Festival head programmer Josh Mabe stops by to talk about the ambitious and impressive slate of films that will play his fest next month. Finally, Smith talks to Trainspottingauthor Irvine Welsh on the 20th anniversary of the popular film version of his novel.
Andrea Garces' Gems of the Week are a mix of downtempo, glitch hop, future funk, future bass, and electronic.
And Scott and Odie are back with a new episode of The Good Music Show. From the days when your stereo could make you laugh, cry or make you hear colors, it's an hour of '60s feel-goods, classy tear jerkers, and turned-on psychedelic blues.
We hope you'll have a listen!
