Live on Notes From Underground : March 3, 2013 : PREGNANT

Date 16 March 2013

alt. sunday nights with host julia v.b.h.

Live music and guest-DJ-ing with the band PREGNANT (Placerville, CA)

“Pregnant is called so because it is so: it is the audible rendering of the reflective, kaleidoscopic ideas ceaselessly gestating in the mind of Daniel Trudeau. Two plus decades of living amongst the legions of chattering old folks, teen-age juggalos, and ramshackle junkies that fill the hill-lined recesses of Central Northeast California have led to a weirdly acute understanding of the full spectrum of human expressive possibility. Pregnant is the re-arranged refraction of this sensory input, a beautifully f*ed-up tapestry stitched together from scraps of dormant inklings and theories.” -Ongakubaka

“There’s nothing to fear in a Pregnant record and that kindness is present in their performance…. Pregnant plays traditional venues, but if you have the chance, see them in a living room, a boutique or a basement. Make sure there’s carpet and a place to kneel. It’s best to be as comfortable as the musicians, which means removing your shoes and letting those toes wiggle a little.” -SubMerge

Live on Notes From Underground : August 19, 2012 : Lasher Keen BERSERKER Album Debut

Date 13 September 2012

alt. sunday nights with host julia v.b.h.

Dylan Sheets, of psychedelic heathen folk conjurers Lasher Keen, drops by the studio to premiere the band’s new double vinyl album release “Berserker” on KVMR.

“The fantastical LASHER KEEN, a trio from Nevada City are mashing out their own sounds. Trad folk at its most dark, heathen intensity. Lasher Keen is the combined passions of those based on creating and reinventing myth into music. The tongues they sing in but tempt you to join in Yggdrasil rituals, masked rites, horned beasts, Fire Trolls, and massive kisses.”

Date 28 July 2012

alt. sunday nights with host julia v.b.h.

“Lux Interna crafts aural altars to the inner light. Formed by Joshua Levi Ian and Kathryn Mary, the project has hosted a shifting constellation of talents over the years, each leaving their trace upon the musical landscape. Through tapestries of minor chords, voices, delicate drones and violent sprawls of sound, Lux Interna has continued to hymn the hidden god with impassioned intensity, seeking fire in the tension between transcendence and immanence.”

The band play an hour-long set live on Notes From Underground, featuring music from their forthcoming album, there is light in the body / there is blood in the sun.

Anton Barbeau Interview on The Other Side 5/31/2011

Date 13 June 2011

BadgeMikail Graham and Julia Boorinakis Harper chat with Anton Barbeau, live from Cambridge, England. His latest project, Three Minute Tease, finds Anton teaming up with Andy Metcalfe and Morris Windsor, formerly of Robyn Hitchcock and the Egyptians and The Soft Boys.

“With but a few years remaining until 2012, Anton Barbeau has been busier than ever, spreading his “pre-apocalyptic psychedelic pop” far and wide. California-born, but currently residing in Cambridge, England, Barbeau has toured the UK from tip to tail, has confused and amused audiences from Istanbul to Berlin, and is as awkwardly comfy in a smoke-and-feedback drenched village farmhouse as he is in an Paris piano bar.”
