Don't Make Us Cry, Daw Mar Mar Aye



TONIGHT, from 7-10 PM EDT, Bodega Pop Live on WFMU's Give the Drummer Radio spins three mind-altering hours of music from Myanmar (Burma), much of it from Burmese cassettes -- ranging from traditional vocal and instrumental tracks, to covers that, despite their feigned loyalty to the originals, sound as though they were recorded via funhouse mirror -- none of it previously aired on western radio.

Gỗ Lim | Gái Làng


Before her death from lupus in 2012, Nga Nhí fronted popular Vietnamese riot grrrl band Gỗ Lim.

Though they were together for only a year, they recorded one of the greatest albums of the genre, Gái Làng, an angular but sprawling sonic assault with nods to Gang of Four, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Fugazi, Bikini Kill, and the more experimental end of Vietnamese hard rock and metal, but ultimately unlike anything before it.

I'm going to open tonight's Bodega Pop Live show with half a dozen tracks from this astonishing, bar-raising, ear-altering album, and I'd love for you to be there to hear it with me.
