Telepathe, The Magic Carpathians, Effi Briest – Tonic $8
Telepathe are a quartet of pet communicators from Brooklyn led by Busy Ganges and Melissa Livaudais of Wikkid. Busy also played in Bloodlines and performs with the Leg and Pants Dans Theeater. They call their high concept act “a process-oriented band” – and are as much performance art as music. Their sound is a highly rhythmic mix of electronics and percussion with eerie vocals floating atop – ambient, ethereal, and hypnotic. Four of the duo’s mysterious and unconventional compositions can be found on their Social Registry EP Farewell Forrest. Polish experimental band Magic Carpathians are also experts in the development of the trance-inducing sonic collage. Brooklyn’s latest all-girl gypsy big band Effi Briest lead off the festivities.
