Yardsss ∅∀‡ — yardsss.com
∅∀‡ full band performance featuring Krist Krueger, Paul Michael Schaefer and Robin Levy. Regarding Krist Krueger's Yardsss: If you read about it before listening, you'd likely mistake it for a liberal arts master's thesis. Where most bands play "shows," Yardsss puts on "performance case studies" and multimedia installations, including a collection of songs inspired by—not covers of!—avant-garde composer John Cage. All this could be completely obnoxious except for one thing: Yardsss is transcendentally, earth-shatteringly gorgeous. If you can make music like that, you get to call your show a case study.

Newaxeyes — ne.waxey.es
Seattle experimentalists NEWAXEYES play with tension and contradictions. Merging dark electronics, crystalline guitar melodies, pummeling beats and samples to refract the volatility, paranoia, and catharsis of the post-Information Age, the band spins carefully orchestrated and recklessly warped instrumentals into something entirely their own.
