Today in the WMSE Studios: Origami Ghosts and Graham Weber

The 12 p.m. – 3 p.m. programming hour will be hopping today with not one, but two, touring bands dropping by the WMSE studios to say ‘hey’, tell us about their respective shows and also play some. Ryan, of the newly-appointed and interestingly-dubbed Richard Nice Show, will welcome Origami Ghosts at 12:30 p.m. and Graham Weber at 2 p.m.

Origami Ghosts is a straight-up indie pop group from Seattle who cite influences like Built to Spill, Modest Mouse and the Shins. Their latest It Don’t Exist  currently has them traipsing cross-country and tonight they perform at the Riverwest Public House with a team of likeminded local outfits like Sat. Nite Duets and Cat Ries.

Hailing from Austin, Texas, a acknowledgeable music epicenter of the southwest, Graham Weber is also busy touring on his own accord for his latest album Women. Today, Weber stops in Milwaukee to play at WMSE at 2 p.m. and Linneman’s tonight with recent WMSE Local/Live alum, Allen Cote and local Wolfgang Schaefer, who will be releasing a new album, Typewriter, tonight. Of Weber, the Austin Chronicle says of their native son, “Weber’s a master of narrative and image in his songs, capturing slight, glinting moments that pass so tentatively by”. Tune in at 2 p.m. to get an audio preview before tonight’s show — 91.7 FM on your radio dial or stream live or in the archives at WMSE.org.
