This week we take a listen to the wonderful world of Tuvan throat singing. Though throat singing can be heard in Tibet, Kazakhstan, and even Canada, Tuvan throat singing is perhaps the most pure and amazing. Essentially, these are singers with the ability to produce multiple tones simultaneously. There are three main styles of Tuvan throat singing:  khoomei  (mid-tone),  sygyt  (very high tone, whistlelike), and  kargryaa  (thundering, gutteral low tones). The folk masters like Kongar...

It’s the MONUMENTAL TENTH EPISODE! OK, so maybe it’s not really monumental, but hey, I haven’t missed a week yet. That’s something, right? This week we return to a theme from one of the more popular episodes early on, instrumental hip-hop. There’s some nice beats for your head this time around. Also beginning this week, I’ll be bringing back one show from the archives. As you know, only the last five shows are available at any given time, but now each week, one old show will be dug...

This week’s theme is Italian horror movie soundtracks from the 1970s and 1980s. I’ve had a special place in my heart for Italian horror from the moment I saw the eye-splinter scene in Lucio Fulci’s  Zombie  (aka  Zombi 2 … I explain that confusing bit in the show). I even have fond memories of crapfests like  Hell of the Living Dead and  City of the Walking Dead , having seen them a half-dozen times each, even though they’re terrible. Like spaghetti westerns preceding them,...

When I started posting Club Krush and Raw Deal episodes to Normal Bias, I was sharing them in compressed mp3s and posting them to filesharing sites like DivShare. Eventually, I realized I should be posting those episodes as uncompressed WAVs at the Internet Archive, where they’ll be preserved beyond my lifespan. Even so, my PRB tapes are but one part of Normal Bias and finding what you need isn’t super easy. In honor of the sixth anniversary of Tony D’s passing, I’m proud to announce...

Attic Beats 005 August 24, 2005 This week we check out the music of Poland, polka-free. A few years ago I  stumbled upon  a cheap copy of an Eastern European music compilation. One of the tracks, “Sonda Jungle”, was by a group named Robotobibok representing Poland. The song grabbed my ear and I quickly hunted down whatever information I could about them. Since then, I’ve delved much deeper into the Polish music scene and even got invited to stay with one of the bandmembers of...

In the mid-90s, I was going to college and just starting to scratch the surface of jazz. It was on my visits home to New Jersey that I'd turn on late night radio and listen to Ludwig Van Trikt on WRTI 90.1, "Jazz FM," Philly's 24-hour jazz station. It was his show "Point of Departure" that introduced me to jazz way beyond what I was listening to and gave me a laundry list of musicians to hunt down for my own college jazz shows. It was an honor to chat with Ludwig for the...

Attic Beats 003 August 9, 2005 This week’s show is a short one, but was a surprisingly tricky one to produce. After all, how do you segue from French funk to a marching band? What theme would pull together those two disparate musical selections, you ask? “Stuff I Bought At the Library Book Sale,” of course. I love library book sales . They’ve been a source of not only out-of-print religious texts and Choose Your Own Adventures, but a source of excellent records. Now, you’re not going...

First thing’s first: if you’re easily offended, you’ll want to breeze right by this episode. Normally I don’t worry about the goofy “warnings” about naughty words, but since the show has been relatively clean to this point, it’s worth mentioning here. Not only does this show feature a track with more instances of the F word than any other song I can think of, but it contains some seriously mysogonistic, offensive, violent lyrics. And that’s exactly why I loved this stuff in high...

For the debut episode of the Normal Bias podcast, I pay tribute to hip-hop producer, MC, and DJ Tony D who died in a car accident five years ago. In addition to classic and unreleased tracks recorded by Tone and beats that go for miles, I welcome some of the many talented artists and people that worked with Tone over the years. YZ, BeFyne, Mr. Law, Shawn Lov, G from WPRB, and Dre spend almost two hours sharing their memories of Tony and paying tribute to the man. King Shameek of Twin Hype and...

Attic Beats 002 August 2, 2005 This week the theme of the show is roots reggae. I’m what one would call a late-comer to reggae, only getting into it in 1991 when I saw a Shabba video on Yo! MTV Raps. But since then, I’ve gotten much more deeply into the genre, even writting for a national reggae magazine at one point. These days, I’m not much of a Shabba fan and tend to prefer classic roots or more current conscious DJs. This episode features some heavy dubs, familiar classics, and...

Attic Beats 001 July 26, 2005 The debut episode of Attic Beats focuses on old school hip-hop. “Old school” is a term that means different things to different people… video shows that play “old school” seem to think that something from ‘99 would qualify. Not quite. Some consider ‘94 old school, others ‘84. I use it to describe any pre-1990 hip-hop, and that’s what’s featured on this show. Some technical glitches are still being ironed out, but I had a lot of fun doing this...

Attic Beats 006 August 31, 2005 This week we return stateside with the most American of music: the blues. Included in this episode are tracks from the almost unknown Juke Boy Bonner, performing at a Texas music festival just ten days before he died. We also hear the incredibly soulful acapella version of “John the Revelator” from the mighty, mighty prince of the Delta, Son House and from my favorite of all time, Chicago bluesman Magic Sam. Eric Clapton inspiration Blind Willie Johnson is...
