Triangle Forest get to the point

Straight outta the shadowy futuristic dystopia of Providance, Rhode Island comes the all-digi trio Triangle Forest, a band whose oeuvre is one of sweeping synthesized swooshes through desolate 3D soundscapes, layered with manic beats and bleeps and bloops, crying sirens in the distance (maybe the fuzz from that old video?), all plaintive vocoder-shrouded voices intoning profound and thought-provoking truths.

(Don’t believe us? Asked by this guy, “what is the coolest thing in the whole world,” their answer was: “the coolest thing is probably Neptune’s moon Triton, which has an average surface temperature of 38K.” Wow. Our heads just exploded.)

And, not for nothing, but a sweeter set of instrumentation you shan’t find anywhere. Alexandra Kleeman plays an Alesis Micron Synth and a Yamaha SHS-10 Keytar. Ben Britton rocks a Roland SPD-20 Octopad beat machine. And his brother Brendan — who you may or may not remember as the sight-deprived video rapper B-Lite — plays the Casio DG-20 plastic guitar and a Novation Supernova II synth. Each of these instruments, we’re told, has been fine-tuned to blow audience members’ brains out through their asses.

Get it done to you tomorrow night at Paper at Bill's Bar, 5 Lansdowne Street in Boston.
