Mark this Thursday (11/10) on your calendar for a healthy serving of moody, synth-induced sounds at Le Poisson Rouge. Salt Cathedral is a Futurepop male/female duo hailing from Colombia whose music "has a strange, evocative bite even as it mines a lot of familiar-sounding sources" (Pitchfork). Juliana Ronderos’ voice is gentle and romantic, contrasting the sharpness of the chords that flow along with her.
Annie Hart’s name might sound familiar if you’ve ever given the trio Au Revoir Simone a listen. While her sound isn't that much different than the synthpop we all love from ARS, Annie’s solo songs definitely have more of a rock ‘n’ roll streak through them.
Finally, Charles Watson & Rebecca Taylor have been creating easy listening jams as Slow Club since 2008, but laced with sounds that evoke darker, heavier emotions. A great example is “Where the Light Gets Lost,” off of their most recent album, One Day This Won’t Matter Anymore.
Tickets are $20 and are available at the LPR box office or online.
