Heavy on the guitar and studio tricks, light on the lyrics. Heavy on the electronica and improvisational, light on the melody. Going back to 1970 and Euclid with their Heavy Equipment release. Heading forward to 2014 with brand new tunes by Luluc, Electric Blue, and Hard Working Americans. Plus a long suite by Nudity called The Nightfeeders at about 3:09 AM, so be looking for that sweetness. Cool Breeze

Film fans: the benefits of digital filmmaking and viewing has opened us up to the world. Literally. "One World. One Week. One Festival...Manhattan Short... the world's first global film festival. For one week, starting September 26, showing in over 250 cinemas in six continents. MANHATTAN SHORT is not a touring Festival: rather, it is an instantaneous celebration that occurs simultaneously across the globe, bringing great films to great venues, including our own Orpheum Theatre, and allowing the audiences to select their favorites. There were 589 entries from 47 countries, now down to 10 finalists.The judges of the finalists' films are you. Audiences at each venue will be handed a voting card and asked to vote for the ONE film they think should win. The over all winner is announced on Monday, October 6th at ManhattanShort.com. Our mission is to unite audiences across all seven continents of the globe for one week via the most compelling short films submitted each year. One World One Week One Festival is emblazoned within the rings that surround the Festival's logo, and it is this mantra that sets this festival apart from any other film event of the year."
Also, held over at the Orpheum is Lucy starring Scarlett Johansson.

Well, the playlist for this week's show was ghost written by my 1956 Chevy 3105 Panel truck. Pictured is a fine example of one of these classics. Mine refused to allow it's picture to be taken for this blog, and so remain anonymous. The songs are public as heck. Check the playlist out for fabulous tunes by The Beatles, The Animals, The Black Keys, Bob Dylan, Cracker, Modoc, and The Host Country. The road is something that every person needs to experience in their lifetime. The G Man
Originally from Atlanta, GA, Andy brings a bit of his southern twang along with a love of funk and British rock. Mix all that up into a guy whose mother is a classically trained pianist and a father who was a preacher that loves rhythm & blues.
The kind of song you get from Andy might depend on what day it is. Andy Ard is the primary songwriter for the Denver band, PJ Zahn, for whom he also sings and plays guitar.
He’s been a winner in the Durango Songwriter’s Expo “Write With a Hit-Maker” contest, as well as a longtime showcase performer at the Expo. Andy is a past nominee for Singer/Songwriter of the Year in the Westword Awards, and is currently signed to Lyric House Publishing in Denver.

(Link to play list at bottom). ... Another excursion into DJ Andy Bargerstock's world music selections revealed in this program through a 4X3 matrix (four bands each playing three tracks). Smoke Fairies (photo) is a UK female duo that blends American blues and English folk ballads in splendid compositions. Aidan Hawken with his former band, Highwater Rising, takes the lead on tracks from their 2003 CD, The In Between. The Woods is an LA-based trio featuring the singing and songwriting talents of Brad Cohen. Swedish electronica brother-duo, Velours Perfect, proves why their 2006 CD is rightly titled, King Size Brothers. Other FT first-timers on this week's show include film composer Paul Leonard-Morgan, North Carolina instrumental band Songs of Water, Ror-Shak featuring Iowa's own Julee Cruise, and Maui's Eric Stroeve. Play list. Program aired originally 4/20/11.
MARK your calendar for Oct 1 and Oct. 8, 2014 to hear DJ Andy's 8th ANNUAL BEST of FRINGE TOAST shows.
What a treat to have Beth Howard, author of Ms. American Pie: Buttery Good Pie Recipes and Bold Tales from the American Gothic House, and Making Piece: A Memoir of Love, Loss and Pie, on the show.
Beth is not only a terrific baker and writer, but has a huge heart.
We are going to catch up during dinner before the show (pasta with trombocino squash and a roasted sweet red pepper and tomato sauce infused with fresh rosemary, shredded brussels sprouts tossed with pecorino romano, olive oil, salt and pepper, and some ice cream sans pie for dessert. I can’t wait to catch up on what’s happening with her.
We'll discuss some of her experiences during the past four years when she resided in one of America's iconic houses and tourist attractions, her most recent book, plans for the future, and a more intimate discussion about the power of a slice of pie.
On today’s edition of That Righteous Jive I’ve got some great experimental brass and underground hip-hop from 2014.
I’ll be featuring Moon Hooch, an experimental brass trio (composed of a drummer and two saxophonists) from Brooklyn, and their second album together: This Is Cave Music. Moon Hooch’s objective is to create house music through an organic process, thus dubbing their sound “cave music”. On their new album they use a variety of effect pedals to further blend the line between instrument and electronic.
We’ll also hear from Renegade Brass Band, Guts, Chill Bump, Nitsua and Vanilla. Stream it live September 23rd 5-6pm CDT right here on KRUU radio.
