When he's not on tour, Tycho mastermind Scott Hansen works as a graphic designer—no surprise considering that the down-tempo compositions he favors sound like the product of a mind that obsesses over details. Each snare hit and vintage synthesizer tone on the group's latest album, Epoch, seems seems deliberately and painstakingly arranged to evoke a very specific mood (sometimes, to a fault). In concert, the trio blends instrumental post-rock structures with the atmosphere of trance and house music—you can dance if you want to.
