Portland, Oregon’s White Rainbow recently treated my home town of Brooklyn, NY to a slew of inspired live performances. This resulted in Escapades, a tape of long form live sets from various Kings County locales. The offerings differ in length and style, but each one is a true electronic adventure. The track posted below is from a loft party in early October. Its celebratory tone starts on a high note with some spoken word MCing. It unfolds into something that sounds like a secret jam between fax machines and printers who have been exposed to a healthy dose of Can. The result is ideal party music for humans. Despite being the shortest of the three featured on the album, this track creates a wondrous aesthetic space.
