Todd Stoops + Friends host funk throw down at The Boom Boom Room 07.27

Todd Stoops made a name for himself as the keyboard wizard of several electro-funk acts in the Northeastern United States. Recently he has relocated to the Bay Area and has found a home with Reed Mathis and the underground funk swing of his band, Electric Beethoven. On Friday, July 27, Stoops will be hosting an all-night funk free-for-all at The Boom Boom Room featuring friends from all of his current projects. Guests include Mathis, Jay Lane from RAQ, and several special guests that have yet to be announced. Tickets are $5 and available here.

Record of the Month: Guerilla Toss's "GT Ultra"

Guerilla Toss' new full length GT Ultra was partly inspired by the CIA’s “Project MKUltra” which experimented with drugs to weaken and torture those under interrogation, and appropriately enough, the album art is covered with acid blotter papers. The release, the band's second under DFA, showcases a more mature production that doesn't get in the way of the group's signature unpredictability. An acid trip in itself, GT Ultra takes the conventions of dance, punk, electronic, and rock music and rips them apart. “Can I Get the Real Stuff,” their second track, introduces the band’s repeated practice of entering the realm of a recognizable sound/genre, and tearing those walls down with something unexpected. It sounds like if LCD Soundsystem and Sonic Youth combined forces, or if Blondie went haywire. Their fourth track “TV Do Tell” follows this same idea, bringing in instances of '80s pop, until an uncontrollable frenzy takes over, as if someone was messing with the pitch lever on the entire track, while changing the tempo signature without warning. “Skull Pop” brings forth cryptic lyrics, like a recap of a hallucination, aligned with music hinting that something went wrong along the way. GT Ultra follows no patterns, no norms, yet comes together throughout the turmoil as one of the most exciting releases of 2017. Be sure to see Guerilla Toss live when they play in NYC again (or wherever you live).  - Pearse Devlin

O Mer brings soulful electronica to Alphaville 7.13

Brooklyn-based O Mer participates in the effort undertaken by a select number of soul artists (many of them based in NYC) to dismantle once and for all the notions that: A. electronic music is overly clinical and "cold," and B. soul music is not adventurous enough. In his single “Now I’m Alive” (streaming below,) his falsetto, overlaying a heavy bass synth line and melodic drops, makes the song surge with emotion. A pulsating beat accompanies the vocals towards a word-less chorus, where abrasive synths intersect with ghostly melodic lines in a triumph of glissando. The artist employs similar production approach in more lyrically driven single, "Overflown." O Mer will be playing a set at Alphaville on July 13th, alongside Secret Crush and No Ice. - Lilly Milman
