10:00am – 12:00pm
Chris Kissel w/guests Kat & Ben + Mia Antoinette – 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.
Kat & Ben are a LA-based duo and a dichotomous synergy of voice and bass. They formed a band while pursuing their Masters at the California Institute of the Arts, where they realized they shared a mutual affinity for improvisation and experimentation. They use electronics, multiple tuning systems and out of line semi-improvisatory songs to weave through original compositions and sometimes interpretations of a wide variety of composers. In 2016 Kat & Ben recorded an adaptation of Samuel Barber’s “Sure on This Shining Night” at Capitol Records and then toured the East Coast the following summer. They are now in the process of finishing up their debut album to be released in December 2017.
Tiny Mix Tapes writer Mia Antoinette will join the show in the second hour.
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.

McAllister and Kyle Art Threat – Please and Thank you
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.
