THE-DRUM have a recent split tape out with SICH MANG via Catholic Tapes that FADER has praised as “footwork under a waterfall in St. Lucia, another impeccable high tempo/low stress gem in the growing production legacy of THE-DRUM.” BIG BLACK DELTA is the new project from M83 collaborator and former MELLOWDRONE fella JONATHAN BATES. BBD’s debut,BBDLP1 is due out September 26 via Coming Home Records and the music that has leaked thus far is raw, abrasive and electronica-tinged pop, including track “Huggin & Kissin” that Not Many Experts calls “an absolutely thunderous introduction to him, a course, hopeless anthem riddled by frustration.” Chicago minimal synth cassette label Modern Tapes recently released a 6-track gem from GEL SET – an effort full of hazy, spacey, sparse minimal synth – and they open here tonight.
