Flying Lotus hypnotic and personable at Neptune | Concert review

A big triple wow for Flying Lotus’ sold-out show at the Neptune Theatre Tuesday, Nov. 18. One wow for the non-stop assault of electronically mashed up sound, one for the warp-speed 3D visuals by Timeboy and Strangeloop — they came last year, too, but this was my first encounter — and one for the opening trio…

Decibel Festival on the cutting edge | Concert review

Decibel isn’t your typical electronic music festival. Though it sporadically books EDM artists, its main focus isn’t bass drops, but rather electronic music’s cutting edge.

Fittingly, attendees of the 11-year-old electronic-music festival were treated Wednesday night to a mix of club-ready house, pitch-black techno, futuristic R&B and abstruse, forward-thinking hip-hop.

Seattle duo Odesza changes course | New recordings

By Joseph Sutton-Holcomb / Special to The Seattle Times

Odesza, ‘In Return’ (Counter)

Odesza’s new album begins with a return to the group’s established sound: sped-up or “chipmunked” vocals and/or a slow, wall-rattling beat. The opening track, “Always This Late,” represents the best and worst trait of Seattle production duo Harrison Mills and Clayton Knight. The chilled-out low-end makes their music impressibly accessible, but the device wears thin.

Chvrches: Haunting, innocent indie-electro | Concert preview

This explosive Scottish trio — Lauren Mayberry, Iain Cook and Martin Doherty — hit the sweet spot between electronica and pop with last year’s single “The Mother We Share,” then more than lived up to expectations with its debut album, “The Bones of What You Believe,” which hung on the Billboard album charts for six months, peaking at No. 12.

Shabazz Palaces pushes boundaries again| New recordings

Shabazz Palaces, ‘Lese Majesty’ (Sub Pop) “Focus” is the first word uttered on Shabazz Palaces’ second full-length, “Lese Majesty,” an expectedly dense and boundary-pushing follow-up to its 2011 future-rap opus “Black Up.” It’s a fitting word for a record in which everything demands a closer listen or further consideration, from its lyrics to its track names…
