Here's music that's thickly slathered with sound. For these musicians, more is more, and more is better. New York band Gatekeeper evokes the sonic boom of movies' HD sound systems; Nick Zammuto of The Books piles on the noise with subtle delicacy, Matthew Friedberger of The Fiery Furnaces assembles a long song on a lattice of glimses, fragments, glancing blows, and solid hits; and Kamilya Jubran & Werner Hasler layer ancient and new instruments and traditions. David Garland also presents some music to calm down to, by Pedro Soler & Gaspar Claus, Mark Eitzel, and Willets + Sakamoto.

Because of a technical problem, WNYC was off the air for a while during this broadcast. We're sorry about that interruption! I hope you can enjoy the full show archived on this page.

Hearing via PC but radio is pure flat static. Other stations fine. So I guess you're fine.

Scary. Maybe a 9-11 thing with me.

Odd tho'.
