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

Date March 16, 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 September 13, 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.”

Live on Notes From Underground : July 15, 2012 : Lux Interna

Date July 28, 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.
