Karl Evangelista (guitar, voice, percussion, electronics) and Rei Scampavia (keyboard, voice, percussion, electronics) are Grex. Their most recent album is Electric Ghost Parade, so you’ll probably hear some of that music as they play a live-broadcast in-studio concert, but they also promise to debut “some brand new slabs of explosive art rock and electronic sound.” Preview their music and watch their video at the Grex website. Derk Richardson hosts and Tony Ferro engineers.
In the second hour of the show, music finder and record producer Ian Brennan makes his annual visit from Italy back to the Bay Area and KPFA. One project he’ll be talking about with host Derk Richardson is Rwanda, You Should Be Loved, the new album by The Good Ones, featuring members of Wilco, TV on the Radio, Sleater-Kinney, My Bloody Valentine, and Fugazi, due out in November.
