RED BULL Sound Selects presents: PEAKING LIGHTS with VITA & THE WOOLF and I IM EYE MY - Curated by MAKING TIME @ Underground Arts (2/19) ::: Feb. 19th | $3 with RSVP | 21+ ::: RSVP to: Red Bull Sound Select curated by Making Time is Rad hosted by Regina Gun$ Garcia ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ PEAKING LIGHTS ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ The story of Peaking Lights goes back nearly ten years. Aaron Coyes was an itinerant noise musician making music under various aliases like Eoh, Faceplant, Hommes, and Unborn Unicorn while living for two years in New Zealand and Australia before returning to California. Back in his native state, he began playing shows in San Francisco’s eclectic punk and noise scene with Rahdunes, who started crashing raves in San Francisco with stacks of noise gear and started “jamming with the DJs.” It was there in 2006 that he encountered Indra Dunis, who sang and played drums in the no wave-punk band Numbers. Indra soon joined Rahdunes, which was her first time playing improvised music, coming from a more song oriented background and classical piano training as a child. Cosmic Logic opens with the guitar and drum-heavy “Infinite Trips,” a song which Coyes says is “an homage to the opening track ‘Der Song von Mandelay’ on The Flying Lizards debut album - we wanted to come in from left field.” The mood of the record takes a sharp turn when the sputtering drum machines and spacey keyboards kick in on “Telephone Call,” a song that tucks the cosmic into the quotidian. “It was influenced by ideas in the Carpenters’ version of the 1977 cover of Klaatu’s ‘Calling Occupants of Interplanetary Craft,’” Coyes said. To which Dunis added: “It’s about keeping an open mind to cosmic messages that can come from anywhere.” The album traces a singular trajectory through Peaking Lights’ current sonic palette, full of coruscating synths and percolating drum machines. “I think Aaron’s rhythms are definitely influenced by whatever is on his mind: reggae, dancehall, funk, Afrobeat, disco, etc.” Dunis said of the beats that power the album. Cosmic Logic both looks to other musical cultures as well as up to the stars for inspiration, and is a beacon in dark times, a reminder to be at once mindful of the terrestrial and the celestial, to be open-eared and open-minded. Or, as Dunis sings on “Telephone Call”: “Use your heart and not your ears.” ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Vita and the Woolf ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Vita And The Woolf has one mission- create electronic soul pop that makes you move and moves you. As the brainchild of Jennifer Pague, the band’s name was so affectionately inspired by the love relationship between novelists Vita Sackville West and Virginia Woolf. Passion-filled and vocal driven, Vita And The Woolf’s music is rich in harmonies. Many have compared Pague's voice, wide-ranged and almost operatic, to that of Florence Welch. Pague has been writing songs under the Vita moniker for the past two years. Romantically tragic and adventurous, Pague’s lyrics are largely inspired by her European travels to Belgium and the Netherlands. The haunting vocal layering combined with an eclectic yet tasteful instrumentation produce a sound that reflects soul and powerful choral ballads. Having released their critically acclaimed debut EP “Fang Song” on September 16th , and fresh off of CMJ, the band is gearing up for their Sophomore release, which is projected to drop September 2015. Meanwhile, they continue to build their reputation as Philly’s ‘next big thing’ as they head out to South By Southwest. ~~~~~~~~~~~~ I IM EYE MY ~~~~~~~~~~~~ Formed by Philadelphian shred savants Al Creedon and Sean Hamilton as an outlet for their less headbangist musings, the bafflingly monikered (but fun to say) I IM EYE MY pour a lot of hot potions into their scavenger’s cauldron: horizon-line Casio pop, boiled vine psychedelia, kalimba krautrock, stone temple psychosis, dirt road dream sequences, etc. Eccentric electronic exotica for a planet drunk on dreams of devolution. ~~~~~~~~~~~~ DAVE P ~~~~~~~~~~~~ Since 2000 Dave P has presented Philly's Making Time events which have hosted performances from some of the raddest bands from around the world. This May Making Time celebrated FOURTEEN years of radness. In addition to presenting, Dave P along with partner Sammy Slice is the main floor DJ at all Making Time events.
