Transistor Radio for the week of June 24-30, 2015
This week on In Store, host Jon Monteverde features a 2014 recording by the improvising jazz trio of Jason Stein (bass clarinet), Tomeka Reid (cello) and Tim Daisy (drums, percussion). Bring Your Own Beat has an original piece of experimental folk composed and performed by Washington state-based Libby Reed, working under the name Coat; in the course of the 20-minute piece she plays electric and acoustic guitar, tenor banjo, cello, piano, accordion, percussive doodads and sings, while Phil Spirito contributes a bit of bass. DJ Tashtego returns with the first part of a 66-song epic Interlopin’ – the songs he would take to a desert island with him to live in his ears for the rest of his life. This set takes a dive into a chasm of Interpol, Radiohead, and Of Montreal before ascending on the wings of The Go! Team, The Strokes, LCD Soundsystem, and Broken Social Scene. Andrea Garces’ Gems of the Week is 37 minutes of tech house, glitch house, future R&B, deep house, chill dubstep and dub funk, and Lechstafari’s back with another all-vinyl mix on Blame It On The Boogie: Deep & Dirty Disco, Funk & Soul. DJ Bloodshot’s theme on Sideshow is Rock 'n' Roll From Outer Space, and Stereo Hysteria's Charlie Crane has a new installment in his ongoing Late Night Lineup series; this time it’s an hour of live performances from “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” including Spoon, Death Cab For Cutie, Brian Wilson and Paul McCartney. As always, Andy Miles kicks things off with 15 Songs; he’s got new music this week from Surfer Blood, Django Django, Wire and more.
