Strangewaves and the Brain are gettin it on again for a night of visceral, exquisite sounds at the Strangebarn
STEVE HAUSCHILDT (Kranky records, member of Emeralds, Cleveland OH)
Steve has been crafting deep, lush and intriguing modular electronic compositions for over a decade: first as a founding member of celebrated trailblazers Emeralds. His new album Strands is rightfully being lauded by critics and listeners far and wide. This will be an extremely rare oppportunity to see a modern master engage in his craft.
ANAMAI (Buzz recs, Toronto, Anna of HSY, David of Egyptrixx)
Chilling, enlightened folk that is rich in depth and magnitude. Anamai's record Sallows is filled with earthy earworms that burrow into your core, mystifying the atmosphere and spookin your spine.
ELECTROLUMINESCENT (Hamilton, member of Sianspheric, the one and only Ry Ferg)
One of the most exciting reignited projects of the year is Electroluminescent. Ryan is a legend of the Hamilton music scene - his ambition is second to none and Electroluminescent's monstrous sounds have always reflected that. Expect to have an all-encompassing montage of sound wash over you.
DRAIN AGE (Hamilton, members of Fossils, Hunting Rituals)
First show by 2 of Hamilton's most esteemed sound scientists.
