Three diverse artists live together in one action packed night. Kicking off their North American Tour at Mezzanine in San Francisco.
Poolside are quickly becoming favorites in many genres. Initially they were lauded as overnight sensations with their breakaway hit "Do You Believe" released on Future Classic and spun all over the world. With the help of artists like James Murphy and DJ Harvey spinning their next tune Harvest Moon, a Neil Young cover, their music spread to House and Disco heads all over the world [see LA Time article here: http://lat.ms/NVLR3c
]. With the Summer release of their debut album "Pacific Standard Time" even more fans have become acquainted with Poolside and their genre of "Daytime Disco". And accolades such as Pitchfork's "Best New Track" [here http://bit.ly/MJtuZn
] and "Rising" [here http://bit.ly/KGiFXz
] features along with NPR's "Heavy Rotation" write up [here http://n.pr/OUGPob
] along with spending most of the Summer at KCRW's #1 Top Played Album, the Indie Rock world couldn't help but take notice as well. Not bad for two guys hanging out in a Pool House making music for their friends and some backyard BBQs.
Com Truise is comfortably situated amidst the impressive Ghostly Records roster (including Mathew Dear, Tycho, Mux Mool and others), and is taking his warped musical venture of "mid-fi synthwave slow-mo funk" on the road. This synth obsessed, vinyl addicted, excavator of the softer side of synth has been making music for roughly a decade and his music sounds subliminally informed by echoes of a new age record collection, hints of faded electronics product design; and fragments of Joy Division, New Order, and the Cocteau Twins. It's like you're hearing his influences through the motherboard of a waterlogged Xbox—demented and modern at once; making familiar things sound beautifully hand-smeared.
Bonde do Role will warp your mind. They turn Brazilian folk songs into dance tracks, and they make Rockabilly replays into haunting taunts. In 2007, when their debut album "With Lasers" was released Pitchfork and the Fader and everyone else talked about how wild, weird and wonderful they were. After finishing their second album in mid 2012, they're even more wild, more weird, and more wonderful. Not many people know what Bonde are singing about, but everyone keeps singing along; they've been described as the third world Black Eyed Peas. The new album – produced by Diplo and Filip from Poolside – ushers in the wave of avalanche tropical (the Bossa Nova of modern Brazil), is all over the place; and they wouldn't have it any other way.
