How It Went Down - May 6, 2011

Having moved from Winnipeg to Toronto, I was very fortunate to get acclaimed novelist Miriam Toews to come in and sit down for a talk about her latest novel, Irma Voth, while she was back in Winnipeg. I'd last talked to her about The Flying Troutmans and this interview was no less in-depth and revealing. Also revealing was a talk with guitarist Ty Citerman of New York avant-jazz quartet Gutbucket. They're on one of my favourite sleeper labels, Cuneiform, which always puts out interesting releases, including Gutbucket's latest, Flock.

Here's what was played:

Set One: 6:30 PM - 7 PM

The Antlers - "Every Night My Teeth Are Falling Out" [Frenchkiss Records]
Sloan - "The Answer Was You" [Yep Roc]
Interview with Miriam Toews

Set Two: 7 PM - 7:30 PM

One Hundred Dollars - "Ties That Bind" [Outside]
Okkervil River - "Piratess" [Jagjaguwar]
Panda Bear - "Friendship Bracelet" [Paw Tracks]
Austra - "Spellwork" [Paper Bag Records]
Efrem Manuel Menuck - "Kaddish For Chesnutt" [Constellation]

Set Three: 7:30 PM - 8 PM

Interview with Gutbucket
Gutbucket - "Zero Is Short For Idiot" [Cuneiform]
James Blake - "Lindisfarne II" [Polydor]
This Is Head - "0007" [Adrian Recordings]

For my Friday the 13th episode I've got an interview with Jennifer Castle (formerly performing under the moniker Castlemusic) who has a great new album on Flemish Eye. And I may be airing an interview conducted by James Borsa, host of Ultrasonic Film, who talked to renowned children's author Gordon Korman. Stay tuned to 101.5 UMFM.
