WFMU Playlist and Archive
The music of San Francisco's Oxbow is a downright disturbing blend of eerie ambient drones, falling-down-the-stairs mathrock, and crushing, twisted blues all capped off with the churning, maniacal vocals of Eugene Robinson. Their live shows have been legend, full of bareboned catharsis, and even some harrowing physical moments with audience members (it should be noted that Eugene is a bonafide bodybuilder and contributor to Grappling Magazine). Through the years they've recorded with Lydia Lunch, Marianne Faithfull, and the Rova Saxophone Quartet, and are in town for a rare date at North Six in Brooklyn. We're excited to have Eugene and guitarist Niko Wenner stop by for a stripped-down electric set on the air this afternoon.
