On tonight's edition of The After Hours I've got some more great sample-based and breakbeat-laced instrumental hip-hop & trip-hop from 2014. I'll be featuring New York-based producer Francesco Climato AKA Groove Cereal and the EP he released last month: There's A Surpise In Every Box. We'll also hear some singles from Blockhead's upcoming LP Bells and Whistles (Out Nov. 18th).
On top of that we've got: Erik Jackson, Neroche, mononome, Boogie Belgique, MEDL4, Kill Emil, The Stuyvesants, Blockboy, Kormac, KOGNITIF and a whole lot more. Stream it live November 8th, 10pm-12am CST right here on KRUU radio.
This week's feature is the new compilation by the groundbreaking, audio visual project: SerialBox. A multi-cam, multi-track, live, one-take sonic/video recordings with no over-dubs or fixes.
The compilation is available as a free download at NoiseTrade.com. Some of the songs from these have already become Roots Rock Roadhouse favorites like David Rameriz's song Fire and Noah Gundersen's song, Cigarettes. But this week we'll get a chance to explore more hidden gems from SerialBox including Andrew Bell, J Thoven, Mathew Mayfield, Thad Cockrell, Fiction Family and The Damnwells.
Rarely seen dances that explore the legacy of Isadora Duncan will be performed by Lori Belilove and the Isadora Duncan Dance Company in Fairfield, Iowa's Sondheim Center for the Performing Arts at 7:30 PM Saturday, Nov. 15th and 3 PM Sunday, Nov. 16th.
Through her own dancing and through the dance company and the nonprofit foundation she established 33 years ago, Lori's dedicated her life to extending the dream, dance legacy, and indomitable spirit of Isadora Duncan.
Why? Where did Lori's passion for Isadora's dances originate? Is Isadora still relevant today? To learn more about the mother of modern dance and about the woman considered by many as the living embodiment of Isadora's grace, power, and mastery of weight, tune in this week to The Studio with Cheryl and Lori.

This week's guest on Writers' Voices "accidentally" founded National Novel Writing Month in 1999. Through this annual web-based motivational program for writers (which takes place every November), as well as teaching at Stanford University's Writers' Studio and around the world, Chris Baty has inspired hundreds of thousands of would-be novelists.
In his new book, "No Plot? No Problem!" Baty provides pep talks, exercises to define characters and plot, and methods for maximizing creativity and output, all with the goal of helping you write a novel in a month.
Join Monica and Caroline as we discover the story behind NaNoWriMo, and what keeps it going. Maybe you'll get inspired to write a novel this month!
"JPMorgan is one of the best-managed banks there is. Jamie Dimon, the head of it, is one of the smartest bankers we got, and they still lost $2 billion and counting."

First up, James interviews Milwaukee-based, Grammy-nominated and highly awarded blues force Reverend Raven & his Chain-Smoking Altar Boys who are playing the Best Western Saturday, November 8th at 8pm. This guy is the real deal who started on Chicago's south side. We'll swap stories, talk shop, and generally have a blast. It's a Southeast Iowa Blues Society shindig.
In the second half of PLANET ERSTWILD, Matt Taibbi dishes the dirt on dirty deeds done dirt cheap in high places--considering the nature of the crime, that is. Former JPMorgan diligence lawyer whistleblower Alayne Fleischmann presents damning allegations of lying, collusion, and illicit clinky brinksmanship by JPMorgan CEO Jamie Dimon in kahuts with US Attiorney General Eric Holder. It is not a pretty picture of the man and the company, or the banking system, or the government.

Starting Friday at the Orpheum- AWAKE: The Life of Yogananda. "Explores the life and teachings of Paramahansa Yogananda, who authored the spiritual classic Autobiography of a Yogi." I remember seeing this book in many MIU dorm rooms. "Filmed over three years with the participation of 30 countries around the world, the documentary examines the world of yoga, modern and ancient, east and west and explores why millions today have turned their attention inwards, bucking the limitations of the material world in pursuit of self-realization." "...the story is compelling, as is the testimony of devotees, (including) Ravi Shankar, Deepak Chopra and George Harrison." - N.Y. Times. ~Reveal Your Self~
Inception Director Christopher Nolan's highly anticipated Interstellar opens this weekend. Chris has reviews of Whiplash and the Edward Snowden doc Citizenfour.

Fridays, 12:30 PM again Sunday mornings 11:30.
“If you keep running after too many hobbies you won’t have any time left for bliss.” - Yogananda
