New York's Balkan Beat Box is a frenetic ensemble that mixes Balkan melodies with Middle Eastern sounds and electronics and the result always fills up a dance floor. Their appearance this past June at Chicago's Empty Bottle was no exception and Radio M
was there rolling tape. Balkan Beat Box is tonight's From the Stage
. Also, 23-year-old New Mexico native Zach Condon ditches the Balkan sounds that were part of his last album, but retains a sense of meloncholy and whimsy on his latest, The Flying Club Cup
. This time out he pays homage to France. He checks in with host Tony Sarabia to talk about he new release.
