Featured Podcast: The Uncanny Valley

Written by on May 20, 2015

Approaching its 1-year anniversary, The Uncanny Valley is one of KPSU’s most consistently-downloaded podcasts. It’s a strange collection of oddities: exactly the kind of ear-opening experience you’d expect to get from a college radio DJ. Robert Fripp, Brian Eno, Radiohead, Frank Zappa, Talib Kweli, The Beach Boys. If you’re not hip to that vibe … there actually IS a storng theme running between those artists, and The Uncanny Valley will preach it to you.

Or in host DJ Mandrews’ own words: “The Uncanny Valley features all that’s too raw and dirty to be prog, too weird and experimental to be punk, and too groovy to be either. Think Cardiacs and This Heat, CAN and Magma, Neu! and Harmonia, Killing Joke and The Fall, Bauhaus and Siouxsie, Devo, PIL, NoMeansNo, Soft Machine, Silver Apples, Cabaret Voltaire, Voivod, etc … ”
