World Without Words

KUCI's Premiere Instrumental Radio Program

2 notes

We had to skip the show on 8/27, unfortunately, but we’ve got our playlist from 9/3 for your listening enjoyment/review! I absolutely adored this playlist because I got to play some of the best new music I’ve come across. In this is brand-new Mono coming off of the announcement of their new double-LP album “The Last Dawn/Rays of Darkness”, where they are seeking to return to their roots, cutting out the sweeping strings of the full orchestra they had grown accustomed to using in the past two albums.

Additionally, I finally got around to listening to the album “Worlds” by the brilliant mind of Porter Robinson, and I was nothing short of blown away. While not technically instrumental, I couldn’t possibly keep away from playing this stuff. Do your ears a favor and listen to this album on Spotify or whatever service you use. It’s worth it.

I hope you enjoyed this week as much as I did and I’ll catch you soon!

And now we’ve also got the playlist from last week, 8/13/14, where we PREMIERED the new single “Bullet” by LA-based outing Beware of Safety. In an effort to showcase their new stuff (and new direction?) of their next album, “Lotusville”, I’ve been honored by the band to play their releases before they were even available online. As a result, now a week later, you can download this amazing new track for FREE on Bandcamp at the link provided. HIGHLY recommended, it’s really something neat and different from them.

Additionally, we hosted intern New-Wave Dave who played for us some old classics and some enjoyable new tracks too. Hope you enjoyed and catch you soon for more great instrumental tunes.

Now we reach the end of the “ABCs of Post-Whatever Stuff Project”, bringing up the finale, 6/18/14, with a bunch of W-artists. I wasn’t able to find too many Y or Z artists, so instead I included a number-based artist (65daysofstatic). I hope you enjoyed this entire project! I certainly had fun crafting the playlists for you folks, but I am very glad to return to the wonderful freedom of playing anything and everything instrumental, post-rock, post-metal, math-rock, ambient, neoclassical, experimental, shoegazey. Hope you can tune in more for the future of the World Without Words!
