Greg Fox + Jefre Cantu-Ledesma: September 11, 2015 WXDU/WKNC/WXYC Hopscotch Day Show

October 15, 2015

Greg Fox + Jefre Cantu-Ledesma

While of course we missed Three Lobed’s annual Hopscotch day show at Kings, those big shoes were filled by an epic day show team-up of three local university radio stations: Duke’s WXDU, NC State Raleigh’s WKNC, and UNC Chapel Hill’s WXYC. The show spanned two clubs, Kings upstairs and Neptunes down. And while a noon start in Neptunes’ darkness with a lineup of four noise acts could be brutal¬†for a¬†hungover crowd, the event wall well-attendended among the Hopscotch faithful. Today’s recording brings together Greg Fox (GDFX, Guardian Alien, Liturgy) on drums and Jefre Cantu-Ledesma (founder of seminal noise label Root Strata) on electronics. Fox pummels the drums like only he can while Cantu-Ledesma works the noise blasts on equipment that I won’t even pretend to grasp. It’s a short twenty-minute performance, one you’ll no doubt have on repeat for a while.

I recorded this set with the room mics clamped to the ceiling combined with a board feed. The sound is excellent. Enjoy!
