Show Review: Doldrums and Blue Hawaii

Last Friday I caught Doldrums at the Bootleg Bar, supported by Blue Hawaii and Sean Nicholas Savage. Savage opened the show with a charming, lo-fi performance of some of his recorded work. He was up
there by himself, with only his tiny keyboard and built-in drum machine providing the instrumentation. His minimal set-up was no hindrance, though: Savage belted some seriously soulful songs over his own soft electric accompaniment, the whole time with an infectious little grin on his face.

Show Review: Django Django

From the moment Django Django walked on stage with their matching 80’s print T-shirts, I knew they planned to put on a great show… and that they did.  Before the concert, I was pretty familiar with their self-titled debut album, but seeing them live was like hearing a completely different band. They have so much energy live that just doesn’t seem to compare to listening through any other means. By the second song, everyone was dancin’, bouncin’, and flailing their arms around. They were completely upbeat dance music, which I would have never gotten just by listening to their album alone. If you’re first learning of Django Django, I’d recommend listening to their song “Waveforms”- it’ll pretty much give you a good taste of what they’re all about: upbeat, synth, and quirky with a robotic sounding twist. Their vocal harmonies and innovative instruments give them a unique sound as well.

KXSC Fest Presents: Chelsea Wolfe

Chelsea Wolfe’s music can only be described in contradictions: It is dark yet radiant, soothing yet intense, and classic yet modern.

 In her most recent release Unknown Rooms: A Collection Of Acoustic Songs, Wolfe sings haunting lyrics, not over her ensemble of string instruments, but through the music as a part of it. Unknown Rooms was meant to be a digression from her previous album Apokalypsis, which opens with a 25 second track of growling, hissing, and finally an earsplitting, guttural scream. However, Pitchfork describes the album as capturing and sustaining “free-floating fear and menace”.

At the age of nine, Wolfe would sneak into her father’s studio to record piano covers, The NeverEnding Story theme song being a favorite, and originals. However, it was not until 2009 when she traveled abroad to perform with a nomadic performance group that she gained the confidence to share he work. She returned from this three month experience with a new motivation, and began carrying around an 8-track to record whenever inspiration struck, resulting in her 2010 LP The Grime & The Glow.
