colorful nostalgia

with Emma

Monday 10-11am

colorful nostalgia is all about that yearning for a time that never existed. a love that's slipped by, a euphoric feeling that is better in hindsight, and a life you could've known. at it's most energetic, it's pumped up indie pop that makes you feel alive, and at its most sad girl, it's crying on the bathroom floor. it's filled with all the big emotions that make it all worth it.

Low End Theory

with DJ Ouroboros

Tuesday 8-10am

Welcome to Low End Theory. If I were to describe the aesthetics of Low End Theory as a musical territory or space, its borders would be provided by doom/stoner/psych metal on one side, contemporary prog and prog metal on another, experimental/electronic/folk on a third, and enclosed finally by the long arc of classic and contemporary post-punk that bends towards dub. The mission of this radio show is to conjure a farrago of heavy sonic fictions of sound, words, and music appropriate and fitting to the heaviness of the times. But fear not, this Low End Theory is not dour or depressing; on the contrary, we seek out the joyful and ecstatic in the acoustic depths of the low end’s vibrating, pulsing heart. And who among us does not need some joy anchored in the deep sonority of the low end, especially now?
