April 8 @ Glasslands with Comadrome/Snark & Marble Fawn
April 12 @ NYU with Headless Monkey Attack (Ryan Carter+ Dennis Sullivan)
April 27 saturday midnight special @ the living room
Our contemporary great American “power trios” vie for an epic loudness, and a wall-of-sound, but DTROTBOT cherishes pristine intricacies. They veer organically between hypnotic, beautiful collage and violent textures that send unconfident listeners running; in fact, I saw them run- a crowd of innocent, unsuspecting hipsters streamed out of Glasslands, snaking past the aficionados and curious souls that stood transfixed; poor things, they were visibly assaulted by a curious circus-like freak-out dissonance, a signature of the band; yet, that too is but one tool in their vast arsenal of cutting-edge sonic artillery. There really is no precedent for this music.
