Big thanks to everybody who came out to Way Out Weirdo Wednesday this week, it was a hell of a time, with a super quiet introspective set from Matt Muslin's project Zwornikins, the super fresh debut set by Grocer (including stunning performances by two masked interpretive dancers!), and the minimal guitar deconstruction of Berdella. But the set we want to share with you right now is this superlative gem by Blank Thomas, aka Blake Butler. This set ran the full gamut of electronic expression, from superchill dubby atmospheres to straight up noisy club bangers, there is something here to get just about veryone's butt moving. Thanks as always to Bob & Sherri at the Way Out, and an extra shout out to Biggie Stardust for sending his homies our way, thereby instigating the "Ambient April" motif, which we hope to make an annual event. Join us next month for Way Out Wednesday #8 on 5/4, featuring the new noisy synth-rap jam band Zero Control (Drew Gowran, Sentel Brown, and David Bell), the introspective experimental arrangements of NNN Cook, and more acts to be announced shortly. See you there!
