insofar as i listen to real-live albums anymore, pictureplane’s dark rift was definitely one of my favorites from 2009. pictureplane is made up of travis egedy, a 20-something dude out of denver making some superb unclassifiable music (or gothic/house/dub, if you listen to his eye-fucking myspace page). i was tipped onto pictureplane first by a great remix of the song “new mind” by teengirl fantasy. dark rift is super solid with lots of big tracks featuring the band’s distinctive scuzzy, synthy, housey, generally manic sound. the past few days/weeks have featured some new pictureplane material out there. first is the absolutely stunning track “beyond fantasy” (download):
next up is this epic remix (download) of rainbow arabia’s “kabukimono:”
pictureplane is in seattle supporting the recently LxNxM repped (sort of) washed out, next wednesday, march 31, at the vera project. go support live music, especially the good kind. finally, grab a typically schizo mixtape that pictureplane made a few months ago for 20jazzfunkgreats.
