Back for more with the second episode, this edition of Nothing Under The Sun aired originally on WESU at 2-3AM on September 29, 2010.

We start off this week’s show with the latest from the esteemed producer Flying Lotus. From Pattern + Grid World we have “Time Vampires” and “Jurassic Notion/M Theory.” The interview clips you hear on the show are here in full:
We stay on the west coast and in the realm of the beat maker with 9th Wonder on production and Murs on the microphone. From the Murs & 9th Wonder album Fornever we hear “Fornever (Featuring Kurupt)” and “The Problem Is… (Featuring Sick Jacken & Uncle Chucc).”
Moving onto Chicago and the juke scene we visit with DJ Nate. From the Hatas Our Motivation 12” on Planet Mu we hear “Back Down” and “Hatas Our Motivation.” If you are down with this sound and want to hear more I suggest this YouTube channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/FootWurkTrax08. There is a nice write up in the latest XLR8R - which has Salem (see: tracks played on the last broadcast) on the cover. Another nice article done here by Bleep.
Hopping a plane to France we next visit a couple bands on the Avant! Records label. First we visit with the cold wave style of Cccandy from their full length, Lonesome Berlin, with “Bourgeoisi Nie” and “Acid A-Go-Go.” Here is a video of another song on the album :)
The Feeling Of Love (also from France) brings us the fuzzed out garage track “Waiting For The Cheerleaders To Get Drunk” off of the 7” of same name. Here they are performing the track live:
Far beyond France. Far beyond all space and time. Swans are back. Lest you think the audio clips are from any recent interview you can check the full version with video here:
The new Swans album, My Father Will Guide Me Up a Rope to the Sky, also provoked a really bad joke that I inserted in a voice break (one that may also have you singing a Bauhaus tune). The song heard here is what I feel is the stand out track and its entitled “You Fucking People Make Me Sick.” Swans are also playing live again - check ‘em out.
Back here on Earth, specifically Providence, Rhode Island, U.S.A., The Body brings a few tracks off of the duo’s album All The Waters Of The Earth Turn To Blood. The show gets pretty intense from here on out (perhaps this is actually a warning coming a song too late). Choirs, chanting and earth moving riffs from the depths. You’ve been warned. The Body beckons you to “Hate All Life.”
The finale of the show culminates in a noisy sound-scape composition from Gnaw Their Tongues. I announce it on the broadcast as the title track from a free download release found here: http://gnawtheirtongues.bandcamp.com. However, I realize that is a mistake (woops, I make mistakes sometimes). This track actually comes from 2009 re-release compiling of tracks entitled Die Mutter Wählt Das Todtenkleidchen. Definitely check out that free release and if you want to delve deeper Gnaw Their Tongues has no shortage of material to listen to.
Check out the straight-forward playlist after the break.
