Chris Kissel w/guest Robedoor – Contact Wave
Hosted by Los Angeles DJ and journalist Chris Kissel, Contact Wave enthusiastically celebrates the best experimental, avant garde, psychedelic, and off-the-grid music crafted in L.A. and beyond.
This week’s show features an interview and guest DJ set from L.A. duo Robedoor. It’s been four years since Robedoor released their previous LP on Hands in the Dark, Primal Sphere, but this spring Britt and Alex Brown return with a new odyssey of chaos and psychosis: New Age Sewage. Written and recorded across multiple seismic life events (moves, births, deaths), the album is centered on heavy visions of negative west coast mythology. Themes of poison, hallucination, conspiracy, and false messiahs weave within their sinkholes of mystic sludge.
The duo’s music has grown darker, denser, and more visceral with each album. There’s a sense of practiced ritual, of deepening meditation, portals opening against their will. New Age Sewage documents half a decade of the band’s hermetic focus, shaped by instinct, will, and apocalyptic realities.
12:00pm – 2:00pm
Davina Two Bears – Indigenous Voice
Indigenous Voice provides a platform to share the unique traditional and contemporary music by Native Americans, American Indian, First Nations, Aboriginal, and other Indigenous peoples of the Americas. Music played will represent many Indigenous peoples and genres, like the contemporary folk music of Mohawk singer, Bear Fox, the “electronic pow wow” music of A Tribe Called Red, or the powerful lyrics of Sincangu Lakota rapper Frank Waln. Traditional music may include songs composed in Indigenous languages by such artists as the Navajo singer, Radmilla Cody, Alaskan Yup’ik teen, Byron Nicholai, or pow wow singers, such as Northern Cree. The spirit of Indigenous peoples is conveyed through their music, so listen in and experience the Indigenous Voice.
2:00pm – 4:00pm
Zebulon FMR – Radio Zebulon
A music venue is usually all about reception, providing a physical place where audiences can come to receive musical transmissions from around the world. On this show, we’ll flip the switch and broadcast the sounds of Zebulon back to the world. We’ll be sharing recordings gathered over the ten years of our original incarnation in Brooklyn, alongside recent releases from musical friends and favorite works by inspirational artists – to be followed in the near future by weekly broadcasts from Zebulon’s new Los Angeles location.
Zebulon, a new center for artistic and cultural exchange, will be opening soon in Elysian Valley. Starting in early 2017, we hope you will join us at 2478 Fletcher Drive for community, food, drinks, music, film, theater and dancing. Until then, please listen in every Sunday to hear some of what’s in store…
4:00pm – 6:00pm

This show is a first date of a mixtape brought to you by two kindred spirits, a selection of new and old sounds brought together for your listening enjoyment. We hope you appreciate our awkward attempts to impress each other, two music nerds competing to curate a monthly blend of sounds for all the world to hear. From folk songs to post punk and everything in between, love is in the airwaves.
