WFMU : Freedom is Freeform!

Looking ahead towards WFMU's live on-air festivities at the 3rd-annual All Tomorrow's Parties NY-edition (Sept 3-5), I thought it'd be nice to take a listen back at the sounds heard during the first couple years. And in the process, I realized that we left out two incredible songs by the inimitable Wooden Shjips. At the time, "Motorbike" and "Fallin" were previously unheard material, slated for release on the Shjips' second album Dos (Holy Mountain). Now that a couple years've gone by, Ripley & co have kindly allowed us to share these previously unearthed live recordings, which were mixed to third-eye-opening stereophonic perfection by WFMU's own Scott Williams. If you crave more, check out Wooden Shjips' FMA profile, and Ripley's side project Moon Duo.
Get psyched because Wooden Shjips are returning to ATP-NY again this year, along with Vivian Girls, White Hills, Fursaxa, Fuck Buttons, The Books, Sunn 0))) and Boris, Kurt Vile, T-Model Ford, Fucked Up, Hallogallo 2010 (Michael Rother & Friends Present Neu! Music), Bardo Pond, The Breeders, Sonic Youth, Mudhoney, Sian Alice Group, Text of Light (feat Lee Ranaldo), Raekwon, Todd Barry, Dungen, & many more! The full list of stars who'll be lighting up the stages at Kutcher's Country Club in Monticello Sept 3-5 can be found here.
