Concert Review: Nicolas Jaar

Nicolas Jaar is an electronic music producer, whose vast experimentations make him difficult to categorize anymore concretely than that. He is of Chilean heritage, a detail which is pronounced in his musical style. Latin rhythms and his own Spanish lyrics often feature, but only to intersect with Eno-esque ambience, Villalobos-inspired techno and microhouse, downtempo dance music, and hints of dubstep. His releases are gorgeous and intricate, masterfully woven together from disparate fragments. The compositions feature exquisite piano stylings, scattered percussion, glitches and scratchy silence, an industrial noise-flavored saxophone, occasional beats, and Jaar’s own stunning baritone voice, soaked in heavy reverb.

Concert Review: Soulfly @ Foufounes Électriques with Lody Kong, Noisem and Cannabis Corpse

Soulfly frontman Max Cavalera has recently been revisiting albums of his past. Last year, he toured the world with his brother Iggor, playing Sepultura’s 1996 album Roots in its entirety. Earlier this year, Max announced that he would be revisiting Point Blank by Nailbomb. Back in 1994, Max formed Nailbomb as a side project with Alex Newport (Fudge Tunnel). The project was short lived; they recorded only one album and performed live only once. Although Newport was not able to join Soulfly for the 2017 tour, Max brought along his two sons, Zyon (on drums) and Igor Jr. (on sample machine and backup vocals). Ever the family man.

Concert Review: GoldLink @ L'Astral

After weeks and weeks of playing songs of his latest LP At What Cost, and falling in love with GoldLink's unique sound, I came to expect not a show, but a house party from the D.C rapper. Luckily for me and the sold-out crowd at L’Astral, he came through.
