IN SITU: LOW CITY & HESS IS MORE
Oct 17, 2015 • 11:55pm / doors 11:30pm
Low City is the brainchild of producer/engineer Abe Seiferth (Yeasayer, Turing Machine) and Jeremy Turner (cellist and composer) inspired by a lost future, the 1939 World’s Fair, films like Metropolis and Gattaca, and the writings of J.G. Ballard. It features friends from Bon Iver and Dirty Projectors.
Hess Is More
These 8 musicians, with their unique instrumentation and unorthodox arrangements create a very danceable yet at times puzzling concert. Catchy melodies and chant-like lyrics that can haunt you for days.
Their new album Myheadisaballroom / Whoneedsapalaceanyway (Concierge Records / This Is Care Of) was written and arranged during the group’s residency at Clocktower Gallery in downtown New York. The album is a celebration of the energy and interplay of the live ensemble – sounding in the borderland between electronic dance music, afrobeat, krautrock and jazz.
