This is the 4th in our Electronic Music Series, our first needledrop show in the series- all new material/represses including Burial and several artists from the intentionally obscure xpq? imprint.  Mostly soundscapes derived from the EDM scene, this show bridges the divide between dance and ambient electronics.


A review of the God Mountain record label, and a bookend to the Brutal Jazz and Japan shows, featuring Optical8, Ground Zero, Tipographica, Pugs, Hoenji Kyakkei, Altered States, Demi-Semi-Quaver, FoMoFlo, The Saboten, Shinto, Spoozys, P.O.N, and God Mountain Orchestra.


In this show we survey bands that were influenced by the Beach Boys, including The High Llamas, Chicago, La STPO, Neutral Milk Hotel, Left Banke, The Millenium, Todd Rundgren, Gorky’s Zygotic Mynci, My Bloody Valentine, REM, Harry Nilsson, The Ladybug Transistor and more.
