FFFreakout #568-573

As is often the case during the summer, the days and weeks seem to slip by in a blur and before you know it August is knocking on the door and you realize you have a bunch of stuff you should get cracking on. Posting the past six weeks of playlists isn’t necessarily high on…

FFFoxy Podcast #101: Andrew Weathers in-studio session

I have another special show for you this time around. Andrew Weathers is currently out on the road touring this summer, and he recently stopped by Mankato to perform an in-studio session at KMSU. Andrew is a thoughtful musician whose work often blurs the lines between American folk and experimental music traditions, incorporating elements of…

FFFoxy Podcast #100: øjeRum feature

I put together a special show for you to mark this 100th installment of the FFFoxy Podcast. In the first hour I chat with Paw Grabowski, the Danish minimalist and collagist that produces work under the name, øjeRum. I have admired his output for the past few years and was fortunate enough to get to…

Out now on Round Bale Recordings: øjeRum “Skygge” CD

Happy to present the latest release on our in-house label, Round Bale Recordings. This new one comes from øjeRum, an artist that I previously talked-up in my Favorite Music of 2016 piece stating, “In my humble opinion, this Danish sound and visual artist is making some of the most interesting work in the whole international…

FFFreakout #562-567

Here’s what has been happening on the weekly Free Form Freakout show for the past month. Yes, despite our best intentions, we’ve once again fallen behind on posting these playlists. In this span of time, though, David caught Julian Koster’s live performance of The Orbiting Human Circus, and Carl saw Alice Cooper perform here locally.…

FFFoxy Podcast #99

I’ve been a bit tied-up with finishing some other work-related items over the past few weeks, so this new podcast is admittedly a bit overdue. The summer months, however, are looking to be fairly open-ended, and there are some interesting possibilities being kicked around with the show, so I hope you’ll keep checking back with…

FFFoxy Podcast #98

On this episode of the FFFoxy Podcast show, things are quite all over the map, both sonically and, I guess, geographically, as I’ve got stuff to play from as far away as Sweden, Germany, Greece, and Japan to right here in our own backyard. To my ears it all seems inter-connected, so I’m hoping you…

FFFreakout #559-561

Here’s what has been happening over the past few busy weeks on the regular Thursday afternoon episodes of Free Form Freakout. We’d like to say thanks to everyone that bought a shirt from us or made a donation directly to KMSU during the recent Spring Pledge Drive. Your support helped the station surpass its $30,000…

New Free Form Freakout fundraiser t-shirts!!

Every year we try to come up with some type of exclusive item to give away during KMSU’s annual Spring Pledge Drive. In the past we’ve done record bundles, limited edition lathes, mixtapes, and other grab bag incentives. We figured this year would be a good time to do a new Free Form Freakout t-shirt…

FFFoxy Podcast #97 with in-studio guest Graham Lambkin

After a wonderful evening of performances at the Arts Center of St. Peter, Graham Lambkin and I reconvened at the KMSU studios to record this new installment of the podcast show. Our approach was rather impromptu: I grabbed some new albums that were recently acquired, and he grabbed a handful of titles off the shelves…
