GESAFFELSTEIN RESET

Clear My Schedule, There’s New Gesaffelstein

In his first original release in six years, Gesaffelstein appears to be in the same foreboding, dark place as he was when he left us with Aleph. Which is precisely where we need and want him to be. It's not as if he's been idle this whole time; he collaborated...

Rufus Du Sol Live at First Avenue

On a chilly Tuesday in November, Rufus Du Sol brought the warmth of Sydney and feels-a-plenty of their music to First Avenue’s mainroom in Minneapolis. They also brought a fantastic billing of support to open for them. (Photo gallery for those who prefer) I got tied up at will call...

WaveStrip, Coded madness and genre chaos.

If your musical taste is heading in an experimental/memory inducing house music, then this Russian producer is your muse. The first thing I noticed is the great dynamics in WaveStrip's style, from deep-house-electro to alternative and experimental, all this within the 80s FamiTracker style sounds/chip music. Just listen to Game of acid, all...

CloZee First Ave

CloZee’s EVASION Tour Lands in Minneapolis

The French producer on a winning spree, aka CloZee, graced Minneapolis with a midweek appearance at the Loft, much to the delight of the nearly capacity crowd. CloZee’s music doesn’t spend a lot of time in one place. Generally, you might say it tends to hover at the intersection of...

Dev09 Forces Tough Conversation on ‘Oh Shit’

It’s not every day that you hear a song that somehow perfectly captures the numbing, wonky darkness of oxy, but if you’re reading this, Dev09 is here to let you know what that sounds like. The song tracks the young songwriter through crisis years she experienced in her move from...
