Kieran "Four Tet" Hebden's output began as pastoral electronic soundscapes, branded by some as "folktronica," and certainly the live instrumentation on songs such as “She Just Likes to Fight” has as much in common with Bill Frisell’s jazz as with Brian Eno’s ambient synths. More recently, though, Hebden's style has morphed into abstracted club music constructed out of a hodgepodge of ramshackle found sounds. As for his live performances, they're no less strikingly "organic"—his most recent NYC sets immersed audiences at National Sawdust in a veritable rainforest of twinkling programmable floor-to-ceiling lights. This big-room Brooklyn Steel gig is a wholly different affair than those intimate shows, but experience proves you can expect to be amazed regardless of the format.
