Nothing Under The Sun is a radio show / podcast / blog / outlet focusing on what’s new in the world of musical sound compositions. It is recorded and airs at WESU, Middletown (the community radio station at Wesleyan University) online and on 88.1FM every 2nd and 4th Wednesday of the month at 2-3AM.
Up first is The Hypnotic Brass Ensemble. Tracks played on episode one are from the latest EP released by Choice Cuts entitled Heritage (CCEP001). “Rainbows,” is an upbeat hip-hop flavored number while “Moments,” is a smooth, mellowed out jam.
Pieces of this interview could be heard in the mix as well:
Next up, the El Michels Affair with “Protect Ya Neck,” and “Shimmy Shimmy Ya,” from Enter The 37th Chamber (yes, mostly instrumental interpretations of Wu-Tang Clan songs) put out by Fat Beats (FB5127).
The music of J.G. Thirwell used in The Venture Bros. (Adult Swim) was released on LP by Williams Street. The two tracks featured here are, “Brock Graveside,” and “Tuff.”
