So I was lucky enough to reach Brooklyn Vs. Baltimore the other week. Awesome show.
Whilst there I picked up the new These Are Powers lp 'All Aboard Future' (due 17th February on Dead Oceans) and it's pretty special.
Was surprised to hear they've now embraced all manor of electronics into the music but it's still as unhinged as ever. More experimental than on previous releases, the album stretches them way beyond the 'ghost-punk' tag and with huge success.
The last two songs especially are as far removed from each other as you can get. 'Sand Tassels' is downbeat basement lonely melancholia whereas 'Blue Healer' ends the set with such jumbled joy.
Their live show is spectacular. Check here for tour dates.

Solo set from Why? at Anticon's 10th Aniversay show at New York's Knitting Factory.
Some greats off 'Elephant Eyelash', 'Alopecia' and a few new songs too.

Baja has made one of *those* albums.
I'm at an utter loss of how to describe it. No songs go for the obvious route, it manages to sound incredibly intricate and improvised at the same time. Most of it is instrumental (and so many instruments!) though on occasion there's repetitious folky vocals that give a Tungg-esque feel to it.
