Quarantine Takeover – Queen Kyla Vera

Tuesday, October 13th, 2020 by The Professor

This week we’re joined by the amazing Queen Kyla Vera of Metalachi! She’s the rocking metal violin powerhouse soloist you won’t believe unless you see her live. We were lucky to have the monsters of mariachi come by the station once upon a pre-COVID time and had a blast with them all (Check out their Studio Seizure!). Kyla is highlighting some great music this week – all bands and artists that she has performed with (or Metalachi has) including some incredible violinists and some rock legends (Suicidal Tendancies! Lamb of God!) so tune in and check it out. Luckily her crazed kitten Gizmo stopped trying to eat the microphone and resorted to just attacking Kyla so the show could be finished… We can’t wait for Metachi to stomp it’s way back east again from LA soon!!

Quarantine Takeover – Liminal Drifter

Tuesday, September 29th, 2020 by The Professor

This week we find ourselves with the furthest ever Quarantine Takeover host with Liminal Drifter from Perth, Australia! join us Tuesday or Thursday night at 7pm Eastern and be prepared for some amazing ambient grooves from all over the world and some special rarities. Liminal Drifter is an ongoing travelogue between identities, physical places and states of consciousness. Many of these dreamy, evocative slices of ambient electronica evolved on hand-held mobile devices, away from the studio, while traveling or visiting new places. This sense of contemplative, exploratory rootlessness imbues his work with the wistfulness and open narrative we often associate with travel. (more…)

Join DJ, author and artist Terence Hannum (of the amazing Holy Circle band BTW) as he explores the depth and breadth of the horror movie soundtrack. Don’t expect a bunch of 1970s vintage spooky sounds, or a bunch of clinking chains and screams, it’s so much more. You never know what famous bands have contributed or how ambient things can be until you listen to these shows. From John Carpenter, (Baltimore-born)Philip Glass and Goblin to local greats Sweet Leda, you never know who’s behind that sound.

Quarantine Takeover – Franklin Gotham edition

Tuesday, September 8th, 2020 by The Professor

This week’s Quarantine Takeover features the members of Viginia’s Franklin Gotham. It’s a bit of a wild ride, and we hope you can get a firm grip and hang on. They reach back to their pre-FG bands and history, throw in some road stories, a teeny bit of innuendo, and some great music. Did you know their members had played in Icewagon Flu (find them on Myspace) and Virginia Coalition (who played at Loyola in 2008)?

Franklin Gotham brings upbeat-melancholia pop back on the indie scene. Described as Wilco meets the Squeeze, listeners will also hear hints of Old 97s, REM and Death Cab for Cutie. They deliver honest & heartfelt compositions entwined with warm rhythms and almost southern-rock vocals. Introspective and reflective lyrics paired with acoustic guitar paint rich visuals for listeners. Simply explained: Catchy acoustic pop with heart-felt, booze-soaked lyrics. Franklin Gotham is the creative pairing of Kevin Adkins (Icewagon Flu) and Jarrett Nicolay (Virginia Coalition, Astra Via) and Christopher Speich (Nashville Sessions). The team offers both modern and rustic sounds through acoustic guitar rhythms, thoughtful lyrics and modern percussion.

They had a website too but… we’ll let them explain in the show.
