Pictureplane

"If you've been following Travis Egedy like I have (full disclosure: he's family), than his rise to relative stardom (via 09' blog explosion) may not seem all that sudden or surprising, but should make you feel pretty damn good. A few years back, Pictureplane invited kids to dance over a quilt at a house party in Hollywood backstreet. Last spring, he brought the dimensional rip to a small Echo Park gallery. Last night [September 9th] saw him opening for labelmates HEALTH at the historic (seriously, The Doors and shit) Troubadour. Of course, like any dance/electronic artist might, he prefers playing at floor level (like @ Women of Crenshaw, the previous night). That didn't stop him from boldly bringing the Dark Rift rave to a rock bar.

Plenty in attendance got the cue to move. "Trance Doll" was a show-stopper. I was most impressed by the live construction of "Goth Star" - pieced together more from scratch than expected, with Travis manually keying the main piano-bit and freely shaping that Fleetwood sample." [stadiums and shrines]

Pictureplane brings the Dark Rift rave to Bowery Ballroom this evening (9/23), where, like at the Troubadour, Travis Egedy will open for his labelmates HEALTH (Tanlines & DJ Mr. Jonathan Toubin are also on the NYC bill). They've been on tour together and they continue on tour together from here, to Philly, Baltimore, and then Europe. All dates and some videos below...

I'm digging the Pictureplane album. Its teeters on good dance music and just the right amount of noise pop. Usually I put it on the weekends when I'm hanging out with my lady friend doing some mutual masturbation to make the time go by. Its nice she's there instead of using my cumrag to soak one onto, and she's a pretty nice squirter herself. I'm really looking forward to seeing them HEALTH.
