Japan’s thriving electronic music scene has been putting out some hot, French-influenced nudisco in recent months. Spring is in the air, and now that the snow is starting to melt what better way to celebrate than to dust off the disco and muzak samples and cut loose?
Sound & visual power pair Oneohtrix Point Never and Nate Boyce are coming to the ‘Sco April 5th.
Brooklyn-based electronic sound artist Daniel Lopatin produces trance-like, vapor-wave sounds as his alias Oneohtrix Point Never. His stimulating tunes are reminiscent of a 22nd century orchestra. The culmination of his sounds invokes a reliquary experience, as well as one that is strongly visual. Installation and video artist Nate Boyce often toys with digital spaces and sculptures in his videos, creating imaginary landscapes unbound to any 4D confinements. Boyce will be creating live visuals in conjunction with Lopatin’s sounds. It might be a numbing experience. It might be like stargazing but cooler.
Philly psych folk. this album, the weed tree, is comprised of covers of the likes of blue oyster cult and nico. this one covers Burt Jansch and takes his loopy picking to a synthesized fantasy realm. kinda nerdy but i don’t mind.
not as overdubbed as most of her vocal performances, yet still quite powerful. acid folk from PA. despite a lack of instruments, this song is able to build an intense and dynamic wall of sound. it never gets too loud, but it feels very loud.
