A couple months ago a small indie quintet out of Gainesville, FL put out a forward-thinking debut album that seems to perfectly weave together both the past and present into something new. That group, Hundred Waters, released an album by the same name, a collection of songs that combines gentle folk sensibilities with an electronic approach to composition. The band combines organic instrumentation with sampled, synthesized and sequenced portions. Although that in itself isn't an entirely new approach, the way Hundred Waters blends it all together is very impressive, creating what seems to be like future-folk meshed with dream-pop. Check out "Me & Anodyne".
Young Pharaohs, a local trio, will join the lineup and should be exhibiting a similar approach to creating music but with a different resulting sound. Young Pharaohs have purportedly evolved from their strictly electronic approach to include live instrumentation. It will be interesting to see how that works with their experimental electronic meets R&B/soul sound. Expect a lot of new material to go along with the live debut of this new approach. Check out an early demo of "Put Your Love In My Hands".
The Larimer Lounge doors open tonight at 8:30PM and the music starts at around 9:30PM. The show is 21+ and tickets are $10 at the door. Tickets and more information are available online here.
