Twitter_icon_for_status: Man last night's Yelle show was fun.


“...But when Null Device draws from Depeche Mode on Suspending Belief—particularly on album highlight “Notes From The Fallen”—it sounds like a B-side that never was from Mode’s 2005 effort Playing The Angel. The tastefully reverberated vocal melodies of multi-instrumentalist Eric Oehler rise and fall over a pulse of word-tinged rhythms and synths that soar and bounce behind a thin layer of what sounds like sitar...the warped, shuffling synth hooks of “Blow My Mind,” the punchy, string-laden “Inkblots,” and the entrancing sequencing and Bertrand Russell-alluding lyrics of “Teapots Orbiting” round out Suspending Belief quite nicely, offering a refreshing perspective on a genre that’s overshadowed by dance-party kitsch.”

    Beauty Queen Autopsy, Null Device, and Mahr LIVE! Dead Beat Productions presentsBEAUTY QUEEN AUTOPSY (DEBUT PERFORMANCE- San Francisco/Madison, Undustrial/Juggernaut)NULL DEVICE (Madison, Nilaihah)MAHR (DEBUT PERFORMANCE- Madison, Pale Noir)http://www.soundcloud.com/beautyqueenautopsyhttp://www.soundcloud.com/nulldevicehttp://www.soundcloud.com/mahrBeauty Queen Autopsy is the new dark noisepop collaboration from Madison's Matt Fanale and San Francisco's Erica Mulkey, both widely known for their individual endeavors Caustic and Unwoman. In December 2013 they released their 'Roughest Cuts' EP, with a subsequent single EP for 'Good, Giving, Game' released in July. They've had a multipage interview in the massively popular Gothic Beauty Magazine and been described by To Eleven as "a sort of Joy Division/Jesus and Mary Chain/Q Lazzarus sound, but it doesn’t sound as if Beauty Queen Autopsy are trying to sound like any of them. Rather, it sounds authentic."Null Device is celebrating 20 years of their eclectic brand of synthpop this year and just released the follow-up EP 'Aphelion' to their critically acclaimed 2013 release 'Perihelion'. Described by Arts Extract as "the kind of band that seems to exist in its own little universe and thrive there, humbly exploring its love of meticulous electronic production and vocal-driven pop songwriting and putting out a really cool release every couple years." Expect big things from Eric Oehler and Jill Sheridan live.Mahr's dark ambient, experimental drone has been perking up the ears of old school industrial and witch house fans for the last couple years. This will be the owner of the Pale Noir label's first show, and we couldn't be more excited to hear what she does.Doors at 8PM (EARLY DOOR TIME!)$7 at the door. $5 with TESLACON LAMINATE.
