Redbull’s Sound Select monthly feature, showcases local artists across the country is bringing some additional recognition to Philadelphia artists.
On May 6, Sound Select will present Brooklyn-based experimental artist Daniel Lopatin, who goes under the moniker Oneohtrix Point Never, at South Philly’s Boot and Saddle. His latest album, R Plus Seven, plays with all types of sounds from bits of white noise to church organs.
Joining Oneothrix Point Never are Philly artists Embarker and Chris Forsyth. Embarker, the solo project of Michael Roy Barker, is notable for its unique experimentation with electronic textures and rhythms. Forsyth follows in similar suit, but with progressive guitar playing that teeters between free jazz and progressive psych. Collectively known for long tunes that can be both nervy and soothing, all three artists fights snugly on the bill. The show starts at 8 p.m. and the $3 tickets can be obtained here.
