Tycho Live in NYC This Saturday

Posted by Scott


I’ve been on the road for the Tycho Summer Tour for the past few weeks and it’s been a great trip. Met a lot of great people and played for some incredible audiences. We’ve finally reached the East Coast (Portland, ME show tonight!) and we’ll end up in NYC for the Webster Hall show this Saturday, July 14th. I’ve never been to Webster Hall but I’ve heard great things so really excited for this one. If you caught the last couple shows at Music Hall of Williamsburg I’ve got some new stuff lined up for this one. New visuals, new lighting, and a new song. Can’t wait to bring it all to Webster; from the pictures I saw it looks like a great space.

Tomorrow we’ll also be playing a late-night (2:45-4am) set at Camp Bisco; really looking forward to that one.

Some tickets to the Webster Hall show are still available, get yours here.

Tycho in Pontiac Tonight

Posted by Scott


Tycho is on the road and we’ve still got plenty of dates coming up. Last night was Chicago’s Lincoln Hall — thanks by the way to everyone there, we had an incredible time. Tonight we’ll be playing one of our favorite venues, The Crofoot Ballroom in Pontiac, MI. This will be our second time playing the Crofoot and if last time was any indication, this should be something special.

I just finished up programming the lighting on a new rig we had made (an Arduino-controlled LED array designed by Michael Potvin. We debuted the system in Chicago last night and everything seemed to work well. Should look really cool tonight with the Crofoot’s already amazing lighting system. We also built a custom 20ft. screen for this tour so all visual elements should be really solid tonight. If you aren’t anywhere near Pontiac, we still have a string of dates coming up, hopefully one in your town:

Tycho Summer Tour Starts Today

Posted by Scott


After a short break I’m on the road again, this time we’re out for a 4 week run through the US and Canada – see all dates here. The new visuals are coming along nicely and a lot of it will be included in the upcoming shows.

Been a while since I posted here I know, been slammed with work lately. Just finished up a couple remixes (details TBA) and my first outside design gig in years (album cover / poster art). All that stuff and some more will start to see the light of day later this year I’d imagine. Planning on finishing up the next couple tours then heading back to the studio to get the next Tycho release started.

Hope to see you out there!

Tracklisting
1 Dive
2 Dive (Memoryhouse Remix)
3 Dive (Keep Shelly In Athens Remix)

The title track on Tycho’s long-awaited Dive LP is just that—a ripple effect record that sounds like three songs in one, as if sound/graphic designer Scott Hansen just discovered prog-rock and decided to apply its winding passages to his own singular blend of sinewy synths and bleached beats. It’s also the first Tycho song to feature a prominent guest musician; guitarist Zac Brown, in this case, who paints outside the lines of Hansen’s halcyon hooks with restless rhythms and monorail-like riffs.

The “Dive” single fleshes things out even further, as Keep Shelly in Athens and Memoryhouse—both rising underground artists in their own right—cut Hansen’s cloud-scraping composition in half and slow his cruise control chords down to a crawl. The misty vocal melodies are still there, but they’re now floating through an embryonic assembly of jittery cicadas, rusty gears, and lean loops that are both welcoming and a bit woozy. The sonic equivalent of staring at the sun for too long, really, or two sides of the same cracked mirror.
