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.

The weather is super sad and so are you. You have like three papers and two tests and you have to leave campus pretty soon.. Here’s some freak-folk to get you through the rough times.
The Tower Recordings – Q Delmak
90s bedroom folk. includes members of mv + ee. almost trip-hop, but instead stripped, subtly rhythmic and lo-fi. loses it’s own place towards the end and tapers out with an ambient/noisey outro.
Lau Nau – Painovoimaa, valoa
for those who like
grimes’s baby voice, imagine it desolate and fuzzy in an open field. add weird assortment of instruments, both traditional and outlandish and oh yeah everything is in Finnish too.
Espers – Rosemary Lane
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.
Fursaxa – Sunhead Bowed
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.
Palace Music – Viva Ultra
bonny is the ultimate pro of strategically creating nostalgic AND foreign melody with little material. everything here is necessary and nothing more.
JUST LIKE WZAK

Grooves With Feeling
if you had to listen to one song forever what would it be?:
It’d probably be For Real by Amel Larrieux.
ideal setting to hear your show?:
Late night/musing/alone or with one or two other people
what are some other theories you like?:
Not sure if I’m misinterpreting this question but I’ve been really into early 1970s house music (Warehouse Club in Chicago, Frankie Knuckles-era, etc) and how it made house into its own form of dance
