CHANDELIERS, a local experimental quartet that fuses analog synths with live percussion and drums return to the Bottle tonight celebrating the release of their 4th LP, Founding Fathers, released just last week on Captcha Records. Called “music for a perfect world, the soundtrack for a club where the dawn never comes and the lights are never turned on,” by The Wire, the new LP features 10 tracks of “luminous Balearic electro-funk for the Nintendo generation.” The quartet are experts at conjuring up early KRAFTWERK meets J DILLA at an Italian disco and we’re excited to hear the new tracks come to life tonight. Joining in the celebration are local trio GOLDEN BIRTHDAY, who have captured their blurry, echoing new-wave brilliantly on their newest effort, Illusions and BITCHIN BAJAS - the side project of CAVE's COOPER CRANE mines 70s Krautrock and on the project’s debut Tones/Zones, the band delivers melodic, retro psychedelic ambient jams.
