Join In on the Fun When Four Tet Plays Terminal 5 on Saturday

February 20th, 2014

Kieran Hebden’s initial foray into the music business was as part of the post-rock UK trio Fridge. But when the other two members headed off to college, Hebden forged new ground mixing hip-hop and electronica as the experimental-electronic musician Four Tet. He began looping and splicing samples on his computer and went on to release his debut full-length, Dialogue, in 1999. In a glowing review, NME called it “uneven, but in the best possible way.” Hebden has remained busy ever since, remixing other artists—Thom Yorke, Super Furry Animals, Explosions in the Sky—and touring alongside big-name acts like Radiohead, all the while still finding time to make new music. Four Tet (above, performing “Love Cry”) put out his seventh LP, the critically acclaimed Beautiful Rewind, last October. Rolling Stone mentions that it “remains otherworldly in its mix of finesse and raucous musical adventure.” Join the dance party when Four Tet plays Terminal 5 on Saturday.

With a New Album, ON AN ON Play Mercury Lounge Tonight

February 6th, 2013

While standing in line together for a show in Austin, Texas, Midwesterners Nate Eiesland, Alissa Ricci and Ryne Estwing decided to forgo their current projects to work together as ON AN ON. Wanting to avoid over-processed, polished music, the three headed to Toronto to collaborate with producer Dave Newfeld (Broken Social Scene, Super Furry Animals). “We really wanted to get away from the sterility of our previous approach to recording,” said Eiesland. And what they moved toward in the recently released Give In, is 10 caution-less songs filled with electro beats, synths and ambient sounds, not to mention a healthy dose of guitar, bass and drums. Give the album a listen, below, watch ON AN ON, above, do “The Hunter” for JBTV and then go see them play Mercury Lounge tonight.
