Tune in each Saturday at 7pm central on WFMC Jams for a new broadcast week of New Music Food Truck!
This week's menu features Ithaca, New York's bastion of queer music,The FMs. Formed in 2017 by Matte Namer (they/them) and Frankie Rex (they/he), who met in high school in New York City, the Brooklyn-bred band exudes subversion with style (and of course, sex), rethinking long-standing societal programming, and the rebellion of simply being one’s authentic self all through their politically charged pop missives. With their name even being a play on the gender binary, that fluidity has always been front and center, showcased as much in the band's music as their evocative, seductive videos and stage performances. We talk with them on this week's Blue Plate Special.
