Take a peek at what's cooking this week:
Tonight's Inside Track features Fallen, the new record by Steven Julien (aka Funkin Even). It's a bare bones release that's both simple and expansive, jazzy and starry-eyed. It's title references fallen angels, and follows that progression, beginning with utopic sounds and ending in the dark of night.
Check out the New Science Experience hosted by DJ Harmony M at 10pm tonight to get down to some beat-oriented trax from the future.
Tune in to the Backyard BBQ this Sunday at 8pm for a special one hour block of local music.
On Monday's Outside Track, WXYC staple Khun Narin Electric Phin Band is back with II – a record that maintains the relaxed yet propulsive improvisational nature of their original. The style of this music is called phin prayuk, referring to a traditional Thai instrument called a phin that is a 3 string lute that has been electrified and customized with some Fender pickups. It can warmly surround and envelop whatever activity, thought, or feeling you are having at the moment or invite you to lose yourself in focus in the interplay of continuously evolving rhythmic patterns and melodies.
