We listened to tracks by some of the most exciting acts playing the third annual Ende Tymes Music and Arts Festival taking place May 24-26. The festival includes some of the great experimental audio artists of the past two decades playing alongside the most exciting young acts. Many of the musicians playing have performed on previous Live Constructions and shows here in the New Music Department.

For information on the musicians you heard tonight as well as the other audio and visual artists performing at Ende Tymes next weekend, check out http://halfnormal.com/endetymes/

This week Max Eilbacher and Ben Kudler came into WKCR on a stop of their summer tour. Max plays solo under his own name, and Ben is Luminous in Nummer. Both played excellent electronic sets, then spoke briefly about their music and tour. We then listened to excerpts from their tour split, "Taylor Mayde," which is entirely composed of processed Taylor Swift a cappella jams.

I aired a Horse Lords live set and brief guest DJ set recorded at WKCR. Horse Lords is the Baltimore-based quartet of Andrew Bernstein, Max Eilbacher, Owen Gardner, and Sam Haberman. They were in town playing two New York shows at the start of their Spring 2012 Horse Tour. Described as "Baltimore's psych-rock alternative jam experimental pop band of the future," Horse Lords freely moves between genres and styles, with their guitar, bass, sax, and percussion-driven pieces. At WKCR, the group played, both live and then recorded, material featured on their new excellent cassette.

Tune in to "Live Constructions" this Sunday night to catch Brooklyn-based trio OPPONENTS live at WKCR. OPPONENTS is Joshua Slusher, Aaron Feinstein, and Joshua Greco. Their sound is characterized by vicious synths, heavy rhythms, and intricately dense textural noise. OPPONENTS will be in to play a live set and discuss about releases and projects, including an upcoming show at the DIY experimental noise and arts festival, Ende Tymes, taking place May 18-20.
