Mouse On Mars - (Set time: 10:15 PM)
Mouse On Mars
We've been digging so much electronic music that's been coming out in the last few years, but we'd be lying if we didn't say that we still miss that golden era of the early/mid '90s when our love of electronica first really blossomed. A time when electronica albums were challenging and unpredictable. When you didn't know what sound/style Aphex Twin would explore next, or what twists and turns Squarepusher would take, or which frequencies Mouse On Mars would glide in and around. Well it seems like Mouse On Mars are really one of the last bands standing from that heyday of IDM. Over the years they've stayed true to their vision of always evolving, exploring and redefining. They could take you to the most sun soaked blissed out space on one record, and then drill & thrill you on the next, and then turn all abstract and fractured on another.

We weren't sure what to expect with this new outing, and that's probably how they like it. What they've come up with though is one of their most expansive and eclectic albums yet, one that doesn't stick to one simple motif, yet somehow feels succinct in its schizophrenic tendencies. It's a prime example of their ability to take the wildest twist and turns in each and every direction while introducing elements of their trademark squeaks, squelches, and knack for sophisticated and strange melodies. We've been blasting and digging this so much.

Spaceship Aloha
SPACESHIP ALOHA is the hyper-buoyant solo project from drummer/producer Christopher Sean Powell (AKA Pow Pow, PayPow, Powserati). SA’s first release, Universe Mahalo, Vol. 1, presents a kaleidoscope of lush melodies and joyous electronic rhythms inspired by Hawaii’s musical landscape. Intended for non-stop dancing, the live show is bursting with elements of vibrant addictive beats, refreshing sounds, and adventurous improvisation - all performed on an ecosystem of synthesizers, sequencers, electronic drums, and live percussion. Spaceship Aloha is the next generation of Powell’s explosive performance style, first seen in the avant-garde art rock ensemble Need New Body, followed by the experimental pop band Man Man.
