Synth-Pop Pioneers OMD Return to Terminal 5 on Saturday Night

March 8th, 2018

Core members Andy McCluskey (bass, keys and vocals) and Paul Humphreys (keys and vocals) formed the seminal boundary-pushing synth-pop band Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark—or OMD—40 years ago in North West England. They broke into the American mainstream when “If You Leave” was featured at the end of Pretty in Pink in the mid-’80s. But by 1996, OMD (above, performing “The Punishment of Luxury” live in studio for WNYC FM) would call it quits, which is where this story would end if McCluskey and Humphreys hadn’t reunited, along with Martin Cooper (keys and sax) and Stuart Kershaw (drums), in 2006. And although they could’ve relied on their deep catalog of 10 LPs at that point, essentially as a legacy act, instead they’ve continued to push forward, making new acclaimed music every few years. Their 13th studio full-length, The Punishment of Luxury (stream it below), arrived last September to considerable plaudits across the globe. “Synth-pop at its most charming and effortless,” proclaimed the Irish Times. “The band can conjure up melodies so familiar they feel like greatest hits. It’s an album so full of stylish pop perfection it would make Brandon Flowers weep into his silky pillow. While the A.V. Club added: “OMD examine the complications of progress on the sparking The Punishment of Luxury.” Back in the United States, OMD play Terminal 5 on Saturday night.

Canadian producer and DJ Jeff Abel has been doing a bass-heavy take on aggressive dubstep as Excision for more than a decade.

Awolnation Bring Brand-New Music to Terminal 5 Tomorrow Night

February 21st, 2018

Multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter Aaron Bruno has been fronting the genre-mixing electronic-pop outfit Awolnation since forming the band eight years ago in Los Angeles. The lineup has changed over the years, but thanks to the recently married Bruno’s presence, singular vision and deftly mixing electronic elements, live instrumentation and forward-thinking production, the band sounds as terrific as ever. Their third studio album, Here Come the Runts (stream it below), which AllMusic calls “a further exercise in toying with arena-filling vocal melodies, razor-sharp synths and invigorating electro-pop,” dropped just a couple of weeks ago. And now touring behind it, Awolnation (above, performing “Handyman” on Jimmy Kimmel Live!) play Terminal 5 on Thursday night. A pair of five-pieces—Nothing but Thieves and Irontom—open the show.

Embrace the Bass with Snails at Terminal 5 on Saturday Night

December 13th, 2017

Mashing together trap rhythms, filthy basslines and an off-kilter sound design, Montreal electronic producer and DJ Snails (above, performing live) has been making a name for himself since his first single, “Bubble Gun,” arrived in 2012. Three years later, his appearance at a number of EDM festivals earned him eager fans, thanks to his upbeat, engaging performances. Snails’ first LP, The Shell (stream it below), dropped this past October. “Your debut album should be a thesis statement on who you are as an artist. For Snails, that means a whole lot of disgusting noise, face-scrunching bass and killer features designed to get the party bumping so hard, you just might vomit. There’s absolutely no way you’ve heard anything like this,” says Billboard. “There are no dull moments, but there is diversity. There are some dub waves, some drum ’n’ bass rhythms, some bright chords and plenty of drops so hard, you’re gonna black out.” His current tour brings him to Terminal 5 on Saturday night with a three bass-heavy acts, 12th Planet, FuntCase and Yookie.

Kick Off Your Weekend with Mogwai’s Atmospheric Rock at Terminal 5

December 6th, 2017

The Glasgow post-rockers Mogwai (above, performing “Every Country’s Sun” for BBC Radio) formed in 1995 when three friends, Stuart Braithwaite (vocals and guitar), Dominic Aitchison (guitar) and Martin Bulloch (drums), decided to make music together. With the later addition of Barry Burns (bass, keys and vocals) and John Cummings (guitar), who’s since departed, they’ve has become known for trafficking in serious guitar rock, although that guitar rock has also gone through changes. “Few ’90s rock bands were better prepared than Mogwai for the movie-trilogy blocks of music allowed by the iPod,” per Rolling Stone. “The Scottish outfit moved from making bombastic explosions in the sky to crafting widescreen soundtracks to goin’ down the road feeling bad.” But on this year’s Every Country’s Sun (stream it below)—the four-piece’s ninth studio release—things haven’t changed too much. “The group has grown into an acclaimed international act, 22 years and counting, with a reliable musical formula that’s steady as a slow-burning fuse. That remarkable consistency makes Every Country’s Sun resemble a greatest-hits album, even if it’s made up of brand-new tracks,” says the A.V. Club. “By now, there have been thousands of other bands plying Mogwai’s fusion of quiet and bombastic, but Every Country’s Sun argues that there’s still no one who does it better.” And with their fall tour winding down, Mogwai play Terminal 5 on Friday night. Electronic musician Xander Harris opens.
