[Preview 3.21.12: Back in Action]

The Upstate Soundscape returns tonight after 2 weeks off the air due to the host traveling abroad in search of insanely weird and out-there vinyl. After scouring (almost) every record shop in Western Europe, Needles will have quite the show in store for you tonight. So tune in tonight at 10pm to 91.3FM WBNY to hear some killer experimental records from far away places.

And speaking of killer vinyl, don’t forget that this Friday is Freeform Friday at Merge with the Vinyl Retentives. We might have a fellow Vinyl Retentive in studio with Needles discussing the event, along with playing some tracks.

We’ll also preview two shows happeing this week, one tomorrow night at the Jungle Gym featuring Pregnant Spore and other noise acts, and one this Sunday at Unity Church featuring Wooden Cities.

Show starts at 10pm. Stream at WBNY.org


[Preview: Crispin Glover, Cobra, Com Truise/Ay Fast, ASAC @ UAG

Tons of good stuff happening this week so on tonight’s show we’ll preview each of them.

Crispin Glover

-Tonight actor/director Crispin Hellion Glover will return to the Market Arcade for a performance and film screening. To set the stage for the two-night appearance, we’ll hear a track off of  Mr. Glover’s 2006 album The Big Problem ? The Solution. The Solution = Let it Be. That’s right, the guy makes weird music, too.

-Friday night, Wooden Cities will be staging a performance of John Zorn’s improvisational-game piece Corba at Hallwall’s. Those unfamiliar with the Corbra concept can tune in to hear a past Cobra performance.

-Also, Friday night Soundlab will feature Oneida, NY, native and Ghostly International recording artists Com Truise, along with Buffalo producer Ay Fast.  We’ll hear tracks from both these electronic beat makers.

-And on Sunday, many members of the Albany Sonic Arts Collective will perform at the Upstate Artist’s Guild in Albany. We’ll hear songs from a number of artists that will be at Sunday night’s show, which is being put together as a benefit for the UAG. The UAG needs help to stay in its current gallery space and the ASAC, which has worked closely with the Guild since 2007, is hoping to raise as much money as possible to help the Guild out.

Show starts at 10pm on 91.3 FM WBNY. Stream at WBNY.org.
