Deastro+Flying Lotus+Deerhunter+MGMT

Posted by Jakub

These last couple of days i’ve been going to shows and heading to a few more this week. The one i’m most excited about is Deastro, he has great energy to his music but keeps it together without getting too noisy and replaces it with catchy looping of synths. I saw Flying Lotus and Daedelus Sunday at Le Poisson Rouge
in Manhattan where all these shows are going on, both of them are unreal live, they take their album songs and strip them down and make the songs really come alive on stage. Tonight is Deerhunter, haven’t heard much of this band to he honest even though they’re everywhere, i just liked that the lead singer listens to Markus Guentner so it should be good. The last track is a Kooks cover of the ever popular MGMT, i think this acoustic cover is almost competing to be better than the original.

Deastro – Michael, The Lone Archer of the North Shore


Flying Lotus – Auntie’s lock/Infinitum (featuring Laura Darlington)


Deerhunter – Hazel St.


MGMT – Kids (The Kooks cover)

Ah man! Daedelus and Flying Lotus in one night would be a great show. Daedelus live up close is such an experience. On his tour for Denies the Days Demise (a fav of mine for ’06), watching him recreate that entire album as one long danceable set was amazing. Watching him on the Monome Box blew my mind.

Daedelus is a god…I idolize his monome skills.

but all of those shows sound awesome. I just started getting into Deastro and I like how you described his music about having high energy while staying controlled. couldn’t have said it better and it would be interesting/sick to see live.

the illustration of the cover in this post reminds me a website i loved years ago.

When flash animated sites were growing with complex and overwhealming designs, this sites could make a real connection between great illustration and simple, clean and beautifil flash animation.

I don’t know what happened to it, but it was one of a kind.
