Songs: [three excerpts]
Recorded at The Tranzac (Southern Cross Lounge), February 10, 2015.
Although this gig offered the possibility of a "make out corner" in the darkened Southern Cross, this bedroom was more equipped for drifting off into hazy dreamlands. A newish joint enterprise between Matthew Pencer (laptop), Michael Davidson (vibraphone) and Josh Cole (mono synth/laptop) dedicated to extended improvisatory mood-setting, this set Davidson's gently-cascading vibes against the subtle samples, clicks and hums from the two laptopists, occasionally shifting the soundfield with a hit of keyboard's "random" button. But even with those interventions, the mood was largely soothing and tranquil — this is the sort of band for whom it's probably not an insult to say their music may put you to sleep.
