Computer Perfection - "Able Archer"
Early November is a strange time, cuz it seems like there might not be too much going on: – the pagan party of Halloween is past, the gluttony gulp of Thanksgiving is still a ways down the road and most of us aren’t even thinking about what we’re getting our girlfriends, however imaginary, for Christmas.
As the trees lose their leaves and the skies become a carousel – introduce yourself, if you haven’t yet, to the formidable electro pop of Computer Perfection, a blend of synth/orchestral baroque-pop twisted and fuzzed by the meditative daze of shoegaze and space-rock.
To celebrate the release of this Ferndale-based quintet’s debut LP (We Wish You Well On Your Way To Hell), they’ve invited space-rock set indie-rock group, Javelins (pictured), who blend some disarmingly beautiful melodies into hard-driving post-punk rhythms - on 11/14 - at the Northern Lights Lounge; rounding out that bill are the wonderkids from Prussia, who forge their love of Motown, reggae, West African folk and experimental art-rock into a dizzying rhythm-heavy display.
Later on, closer to T.Giving, see what all the blog-buzz and DMA-recognition is all about, when the Jesus Chainsaw Massacre perform at Friday night’s Phonotropic (at the Crofoot in Pontiac), on 11/20 (myspace.com/thejesuschainsawmassacre) - with goLab!, Carjack, and Marco Polio & The New Vaccines.
