German techno trio Brandt Brauer Frick, comprised of the jazz-leaning Daniel Brandt and Jan Brauer and the classically trained Paul Frick, will bring their experimental sounds to the US for a few dates this fall. The trio layers loops of mainly acoustic instruments to create minimal soundscapes somewhat similarly to the proto-techno composers of the 1970s and early '80s. While they're in the US, they'll play Moogfest, Fun Fun Fun Fest, and a NYC show at Glasslands on October 27. Tickets for the Glasslands show are on sale now (no other bands on the bill at the moment). They played Coachella in April. All future dates are listed below.
