Plaid‘s new album Scintilli hit the racks in late September, and has spawned at least two videos. Check out “At Last” and “35 Summers” below.

Plaid followed up Scintilli‘s release with a rare gang of North American dates that hit Le Poisson Rouge in NYC on 11/11/11 with Balinese ensemble Gamelan Dharma Swara. The interesting choice of opener (see the pictures bellw) got a great reaction, and there were at least some in the crowd who came just for them. They played about 3 songs in 40 minutes.

The London-based duo that are Plaid were backed by two screens with minimal visuals, but huge bass that, to quote one friend, “had most of the room dancing their asses off.” Somewhat unfortunately, the Plaid show was an early one. After their almost-90 minute set, Plaid had to make a quick exit so the room could be cleared for the DJs that were scheduled for the late show.

Plaid continue on the road. More pictures from their NYC show, and those videos, below…
