Ides of March

featured episode

Part those hairy fronds and dive deep into Beard Radio's Ides of March. Stewart Smith takes you to some dark places with the dub dread of Raime, the creeping doom of Haxan Cloak, and the apocalyptic drone of Tim Hecker. We also revel in the sheer pleasure of noise, from the hippy bliss-romps of Akron/Family and the sound of children singing in the Sahel, to Larry Young's cosmo-jazz freakouts and the unadulterated joy of Bob Cobbing's sound poetry. All that, plus heavy, heavy funk from Iron Knowledge, Saharan guitar music, some classic soundtrack music from Nino Rota, and the ecstatic sound of a waulking song from the Isle of Barra. We top it all off with a gorgeous ballad from Iranian singer Dariush.
