He brings his unique brand of electronic music to WFMU's Infinite Distortion with new B.N. member Anthony Saunders (Dataclast, Existence in Decline). Desolate images of a burnt out world echo through an uncaring universe. Hear one of the premier modern doomsday prophets ply his cruel trade on ye olde WFMU this Wednesday night at 8pm on Infinite Distortion with Bosh!

Wednesday, November 12th, 9pm - Midnight
on The Evan "Funk" Davies Show

The Canadian rock band Sloan released their first record in 1992. 22 years later their lineup remains unchanged, and their albums remain brilliant. Their brand new album Commonwealth (Yep Roc) is their first since 2011 and is released as a double LP, with one side devoted to each of the four band members. Sloan is currently touring the northeast and mid-Atlantic states as well as Canada in support of this new album, and they're giving up a rare night off to come out and record a session at WFMU! Tune in to the Evan "Funk" Davies show Wednesday night Nov. 12 at 9pm for this special live set -- unless of course you're going to see them that night at the Bowery Ballroom! Check for additional live dates throughout November.

SoKo & Amber Benson
Thursday, November 13th, 3am - 6am
Dark Night of the Soul with Julie
French actor/singer SoKo took time from her busy birthday schedule during CMJ to come play and eat gluten-free cupcakes in the WFMU studio. Recently known for her song "We Might Be Dead by Tomorrow" featured in the viral "First Kiss" video, SoKo has a long illustrious career in TV and film, adding music to her repertoire in 2007. After her first album, "I thought I was an Alien," full of soft haunting songs she's now going into a more new wave direction musically but keeping the sad soulfulness that has always permeated her music. Also featured in this show is a brief interview with actor/writer Amber Benson (Buffy the Vampire Slayer TV show & comic books, The Morganville Vampire web series, The Calliope-Reaper Jones novels) conducted in the chaos of the 2014 New York Comic-Con.

Producer Glyn Johns and Big Mama Thornton Biographer Michael Spörke
Saturday, November 15th, 11am - 1pm
on Michael Shelley's show

Michael Shelley welcomes legendary music producer Glyn Johns, who has just published a new book "Sound Man: A Life Recording Hits with The Rolling Stones, The Who, Led Zeppelin, The Eagles, Eric Clapton, The Faces . . ." and Michael also welcomes Michael Spörke author of "Big Mama Thornton: The Life and Music" to discuss the singer's struggles and successes in life and in the music business.

Rashad Becker & Eli Keszler
Sunday, November 16th, 7pm - 9pm
Daniel Blumin's show
Having worked at Basic Channel-founded Dubplates & Mastering for almost two decades, Rashad Becker has mastered hundreds of releases by the likes of Vladislav Delay, Pan Sonic, Ryoji Ikeda, and Plastikman. When his terrific debut LP, "Traditional Music of Notional Species Vol. 1" emerged in 2013, the world finally got a chance to catch a glimpse of Rashad's own sound world, in which alien transmissions from ailing communication devices of the future meet clusters of electronic tones from a mechanized rainforest. The live session will feature Rashad solo plus the debut of a duo with his touring partner, multi-instrumentalist Eli Keszler. Eli has a wild new LP out with Oren Ambarchi and has collaborated with Jandek, Joe McPhee, and David Grubbs to name a few. Eli's hypnotic session on WFMU a few years back was great, so tune in the day after the two perform at Issue Project Room in Brooklyn and be glad you did!

The Monsieurs plus The Love Me Nots
Monday, November 17th, Noon - 3pm
Three Chord Monte with Joe Belock
Three Chord Monte moves to Mondays, and for the first show get ready for a double blast of killer garage punk! First up is The Monsieurs. Andy MacBain from Boston hardcore legends Tunnel of Love leads this high-octane lo-fi power trio who just put out their self-titled debut LP on Black Gladiator. Then, roaring out of the Arizona desert is the fuzz and farfisa-driven sounds of the Love Me Nots, whose new album Sucker is rocketing up the Teenage Wasteland charts.

Thomas Carnacki
Wednesday, November 19th, Midnight - 3am
on Wm. Berger presents My Castle of Quiet

Thomas Carnacki's music covers unexpected ground, for what one might expect from a solo "noise" artist, i.e., less hard noise, more psych, more akin to something like Organum or NWW, more like our previous guests Hoor-paar-Kraat. Carnacki is part of a newer generation of more contemplative, less-harsh sound sculptors, with hovering drones, horizontal scapes, acid-tinged themes that emerge and then dissipate, and more "organic" sounds also touching down, then lifting off. With special guest player Jesse Quattro, this 100% live set should be a real treat for WFMU and My Castle of Quiet listeners!

Vasthi Bunyan
Saturday, November 22nd, 6am - 9am
Shrunken Planet with Jeffrey Davison
Vashti Bunyan's 1970 album, "Just Another Diamond Day", is considered one of the keystone recordings of that UK music scene, as its sound and backstory seem the very distillation of that time and place. Her rediscovery by a new generation of musicians led to her 2005 "Lookaftering" and now her brand new "Heartleap", which bookend her 1970 LP. Each of the records is connected by being at once a look back to another time, of being very much in the present, and also possessing an out-of-time quality, all of which continue to beguile listeners. In a recent phone conversation, she and I spoke at length about the time leading up to her debut album and also about the making of her two subsequent records.

Jonathan Richman!
Saturday, November 22nd, 11am - 1pm
Michael Shelley's show

Monday, November 24th, 8pm - 9pm
Night People
Lead vocalist of The Fleetwoods, Gary Troxel checks in with Night People to discuss the early years of Rock and Roll and the stories behind hits like "Come Softly" and "Mr. Blue".

Dan Bodah fills in for Martha tonight with a live set from Rhyton
Friday, November 28th, 9pm - Midnight
Airborne Event with Dan Bodah
Rhyton brings together string multi-instrumentalist Dave Shuford (aka D. Charles Speer), bassist and organist Jimy SeiTang [pronounced Jimmy Say - Tang] (of Stygian Stride, formerly of Psychic Ills) and drummer Rob Smith (of Pigeons). Despite all of the members' other involvements, Rhyton is very much its own band. It's deeply psychedelic music with a focus on mixing ancient and futuristic elements. Rhyton pours fierce rock improvisation into Greek and Middle Eastern traditions, all funneled together through groove.

Peter Guralnick plus Michael Spörke
Saturday, November 29th, 11am - 1pm
on Michael Shelley's show

Michael Shelley chats with noted music journalist Peter Guralnick who this month begins releasing his back catalog as enhanced e-books with newly shot video interview segments, audio of his original interviews and new chapters.

X_X / Blues Control / Silk Purse
WFMU's Monty Hall, Sunday, December 7th
7pm (6 doors)$10
presented by Brian Turner's show

The return of Cleveland artpunk combo featuring John Morton (Electric Eels), Andrew Klimek (Red Dark Sweet), Craig Bell (Rocket From the Tombs, Mirrors, Gizmos) and Matthew Harris. Originally formed in 1978 with Morton, Klimek, Anton Fier (Feelies/Golden Palominos/Lounge Lizards) and Jim Ellis, X_X were originally meant to last six months as Morton was moving to NYC, but recently Ektro Records released the band's output as an LP (with liners by Jon Savage), and lo and behold they are back on stage.
Blues Control
Since 2006 the duo of Russ Waterhouse and Lea Cho have turned traditional psychedelia upside-down on his head with lo-tech (guitar, keyboards, FX, tapes) means to incorporate
a hazy but powerful common musical thread between Conrad Schnitzler's jabbering electronic workouts, the gauze of Locust Abortion Technician-era Butthole Surfers, and the more unicorn-saddling moments of Jan Hammer. Or perhaps, they are driving off in the car piloted by mid-period ZZ Top. Either way, they are great live and on their numerous releases for Siltbreeze, Holy Mountain, Woodsist, and Drag City (and others):

Silk Purse
New NYC noisy-free-rock combo featuring 2/3 of what used to be Sightings (Mark Morgan: guitar/vox, Richard Hoffman: bass, Justin Craun: electronics)

Pat Byrne presents Prove It All Night!
Guests TBA
9-11pm $5 suggested donation at the door
