SHOW & TELL w/Miniature Airlines, Hjalti, Powermitten (aka Looptid) - Wednesday, December 9 @ Living Room

Show And Tell regular Naturebot hosts this Wednesday's edition, featuring...

Hjalti [Timm Blakley] is a Seattle based musician with influences which span from industrial to classical. He likens his minimalist style to winter which has the regret of summer and the hope of spring. He has been described as liking modal chords with jazz influences and a dry snare. He disagrees with the jazz part of this.

Dylan Abbott writes pop songs. Lately, he's been in the habit of taking them apart, fucking up all the pieces, and reconstructing them as something else, something that still resembles a pop song structure, but just barely. When he does this, he calls the results Miniature Airlines, and so far he's done this for several years, on two self-released EPs ("Apparel" and "Pushpin Revolution"). Originally known as Airliner (before a Swede with the same name made him change it), Minature Airlines has taken his music from poppy electro to cerebral glitch, soaking up the influence of IDM, new wave, and hip-hop along the way. Expect melody, splintered breakbeats, heavily processed atmospheres, and titles stolen from Thomas Pynchon novels from this Canadian ex-pat.

Powermitten is Epilectro. Powermitten aims to create and remix everything the world wishes they forgot. Powermitten is unique. You may also know him as the man behind Looptid Visuals.

Always free! 9PM-1AM @ The Living Room in Seattle
1355 E. Olive Way
