Low End Theory

with DJ Ouroboros

Wednesday 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 need some joy anchored in the deep sonority of the low end, especially now?

Pluto Retrograde

with pey, Ashley, Clare

Wednesday 3-5pm

Just when all hope is forfeit because you've lost your family heirloom ceramic mushroom to an NFT smuggler, found out the NSA is tracking your phone but won't answer your calls (you get lonely too!), have your boss now passive aggressively calling you "babushka" since he's found out you rent, Pluto Retrogade appears and it all makes sense. You can start smoking again - you've earned it.
