DUSTIN WONG & TAKAKO MINEKAWA (http://www.thrilljockey.com/thrill/Takako-Minekawa-and-Dustin-Wong/)
Dustin Wong (Ponytail) & Takako Minekawa unleash their new duo record Savage Imagination on Thrill Jockey & hit the road behind it. Prog influenced warped pop songs layered effected guitar bumbling synthesized rhythms. Frantic energy channeled into precise gyrating groove structured. Angular chords wrap themselves around each other. A coy marriage of synthesizer bleeps and guitar notes. Wispy vocals float over these interchanges. Don't sleep on this killer combo.
Toronto kraut synth smooth mover, creates psychedelic dreamscape music. The vacation soundtrack for a tropical resort on mars. Flowering synth tones glisten endlessly as tinkering electronic drum movements get buried in the spectral glow of oscillating effected guitar notes. Lie the interior of a large gem, sounds reflect and reverberate in slow motion and new notes wade through the fog of frequencies.
Whoa! Blasting pop jams from the mind of Steven Foster (Donlands & Mortimer). Crystal clear production sees Foster's voice soar above strummed guitar chords in simplistic beauty. His minimalistic songs fill out in seconds with expansive drums patterns mingling with angular guitar textures, all dancing in a veil of fog. Building acoustic guitar notes & string phrases like an electronic musician assembles bleeps & bloops. Come early to see this wonder.
