It was only fitting that the 150th episode of TMN Radio was one of the most eclectic yet — a true testament to how the show has pushed my music explorations forward. This episode features music from Nigeria, Mali, Turkey, Niger, France, The Congo, Ghana, England, Sweden and more making it the most internationally focused episode to date. Highlights include the beautiful Tuareg guitar of Tinariwen, psychedelic renditions of Turkish folk songs from Altın Gün, a summer essential from Ghana-natives Onipa and a medley of tracks in honor of French engineer/producer/artist Philippe Zdar who tragically passed last week. I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to put this show together every week for nearly 4 years now. Help keep BFF.fm thriving and growing by contributing our Summer Sustainer fundraiser here.

[Denver Event] The Underground Music Showcase 2019

Rapidly approaching, from July 26th through the 28thDenver’s preeminent indie music festival, The Underground Music Showcase has announced its lineup for 2019. After updating its format last year, and adding a plethora of new stages and venues, which now totals four outdoor main stages and over 20 indoor venues, The UMS looks to once again take the city by the reigns for one amazing weekend in late July. Dotting the top of this year’s bill are the likes of Empress Of, Honne, Chicano Batman, Black Mountain, Tuxedo, Earthgang, and Still Woozy for a certifiably heavy hitting slate of headliners; but as always, the talent buyers for the UMS have flexed their mid-card and local muscles just as hard.

Additional national support includes Yves Tumor, DRAMA, LEIKELI47, Y La Bamba, Miya Frolick, Gardens & Villa, Tessa Violet, Spooky Mansion, Greyhounds, Dressy Bessy, DBUK, Kainalu, Clavvs, Rapperchicks, Rich Jones, Divino Niño, Parallelephants, Deezie Brown, and Garrett T Capps. Coming out of Colorado, we’re getting perked up for the much buzzed about set from synth-pop duo xOxford (pronounced Oxford) who will be making their live debut at the festival, as well as Mile High stalwarts including Falcon Punch, YASI, Andy Immerman, Nasty Nachos, Bud Bronson & The Goodtimers, DeCollage, Milky.WAV, and loads more.

 

As always, we will be out in full force during the hot, end-of-july weekend, so be on the lookout for your Ninja fam! Stream the official UMS 2019 playlist below, get your weekend passes for just $50, and single day tickets for the 2019 Underground Music Showcase here.

Music Ninja Radio
Episode #140: Solange, Weval, Little Simz & Charles Murdoch

Soundcloud || iTunes Podcast || Spotify Playlist  || BFF.fm Archive & Tracklist

This week’s episode covers the plethora of new releases that dropped last week including Solange’s psychedelic surprise, Weval’s long-anticipated sophomore album, a psych-rock epic from Pond, the soul-bearing third album from Little Simz and a new direction from Australian producer Charlie Murdoch. I also played some catch up on recent releases from Australian singer-songwriter Julia Jacklin, Canadian soultronic duo Planet Giza and NY emcee Deem Spencer. To close things out we got into a couple artists I saw live recently with Maribou State and Tourist before finishing up with Four Tet’s massive new Nelly Furtado-sampling single.
