Not Breathing live in LA with cEvin Key released on Bandcamp

http://notbreathing.bandcamp.com/album/a-c-i-d-tour-live

Not Breathing has just released on its Bandcamp page two live recordings, including the one I made as they opened for Meat Beat Manifesto in February 2012 from the El Rey in LA with Skinny Puppy’s cEvin Key as a one-night-only honorary member of the band. Name your price on Bandcamp, so go get it.

(audio) Wisp live in Oakland, 23 Sept 2011

Rephlex superstar Wisp crawled out of his studio in Niagra Falls (where he’s furiously working on his next album) and came out west to play a one-off show for RecordLabelRecords in Oakland in September of 2011. He played many unreleased tracks in the performance as well as some earlier tunes. His music is melodic electronic without being sleepy, danceable without getting too loopy, breaky without getting broken, playful without getting silly, bleepy but not too clinical, lush without getting dreamy, at times getting slightly aggressive but so much as to cause people to plug their ears and/or run away, and with occasional acoustic piano interludes.

Wisp live at Cremation of Care at Zool in Oakland, California, 23 Sept 2011.

(audio) Exillon live in Oakland, 24 Sept 2011

Bay Area powerhouse Exillon continues to soldier on with his unique techno/idm style. With releases on Berlin’s venerable Ad Noiseam as well as a handful of 12”s (including his debut EP on Curtis Chip’s Zod Records), you really should be familiar with his work. If not, here’s a taste.

Bonus- this foto was taken from the actual show where that audio was recorded.

Extra bonus- HA! Check me out in the back round of this shot. No, not the shapely blond woman. The uninterested looking guy with the glasses.

(audio) The Tleilaxu Music Machine live in Los Angeles, 9 July 2011

I’d seen The Tleilaxu Music Machine only once before this recording, probably a few years ago, and back in those days he was doing a sort of aggro-distorto-hardcore-gabber type sound with vocals. For all I know he may still do that material, but this night he broke out a bunch of instrumental danceable techno with some slight dsp glitchiness.
