The Line-Up for 10-28-2011

A cold front has blown into San Antonio, so it's a bit chilly. That's nice, right? October actually feels sort of like October. That's Texas weather for you. But you're not here to talk about the weather, you're here for a really cool radio show. Rachelle Ferrell - Why You Wanna Mess It All Up? Rachelle's coming to San Antonio to the Carver Community Cultural Center on November 12th . I'll be there, how about you? dela - Can It B So Simple? BADBADNOTGOOD - Electric Relaxation I've been wanting to play these guys on the show more often than I have but I just haven't found the right slot for them other than a music beds. Oh, and have you seen their recent jam session videos with Tyler, the Creator? I think I finally get  OFWGKTA. I was trying really hard to for a while. Don Cherry - Brown Rice The computer filled my hour with a lot of stuff that didn't fit this week. This was the only track it picked that did. If fact, it fits really  wel

The Line-Up for 10-21-2011

This week's Line-Up is filled with energy, even if half the songs aren't necessarily filled with a lot of instruments. These were some of the most interesting new tracks that I've heard this week... and one the computer picked. Tigran Hamasyan - What the Waves Brought I knew I would be playing the Brad Mehldau & Kevin Hays and Chick Corea & Stefano Bollani tracks this week so I figured some more solo piano would compliment things. Also, it came up in my commute. Múm - Awake on a Train Brad Mehldau & Kevin Hays - Generatrix Modern Music is a good album. It straddles the ground between a classical concert and a jazz performance so it may not really be for everyone. Still, some of the choicer tracks are definitely great picks for the radio. This is  one of those choicer tracks. I'm looking forward to playing others. Chick Corea & Stefano Bollani - Jitterbug Waltz This may possibly be the best version of "Jitterbug Waltz" that I have ever

The Line-Up for 10-14-2011

Another week, another Line-Up. This week there may not be a whole lot of very new music since I'm still coming off of the pledge drive but since I'm back at the station, I'll soon be consuming new music once more. It's weird not taking in a bunch of new stuff for a two week stretch. I may be a bit spoiled. In the meantime, this show is still a good 'un. Patrick Cornelius - Shiver Song I've got a few default responses to song selections: commute and computer. This is a commute selection. RjD2 - Ghostwriter Wallace Roney - Quadrant This is a computer selection. Peter Erskine, Nguyên Lê, and Michel Benita - ZigZag This also is a computer selection. Radiohead - Kid A Le Boeuf Brothers - Fire Dancing Dreams I said it earlier and I'll say it again-- In Praise of Shadows  is a pretty cool album. This track caps off the album and it does so quite strongly. Marco Benevento - Fearless I'm glad there's a studio version of this song. The live versio

The Line-Up for 10-7-2011

It's the last day of the KRTU fall pledge drive and it's action packed. Join in on all the fun by becoming a member of the station . In the meantime, dig the cool music this week. Menahan Street Band - Everyday A Dream Curiously enough, the computer picked this song. Clearly, I wasn't going to throw out any Menahan Street Band. Andrew Cyrille & Mor Thiam - Water Water Water Vijay Iyer feat. Prasanna & Nitin Mitta - Duality I've been feeling playing a selection from Tirtha  for a little while. This seemed like a good time to do so. Gerald Clayton - Snake Bite This one came up in my commute. Apple Juice Kid - Bitches Ben Williams - Moontrane The computer picked this one, too. I think it's learning me now. Dafnis Prieto - Emergency Call I know I played this track a couple weeks ago but it came up in my commute the other day and I knew I wanted to play it again. It re-wowed me. J&D - Coffee in the Morning Nujabes - Counting Stars This came up
