At this wonderful Decibel Fest Optical showcase, twisted and warped bass-music anti-superstar Eskmo headlines with his cut-and-paste hyperactive sound—one I like listening to while watching a cooking show on mute, where Eskmo’s sounds chop and dice their way to a delicious looking meal with celery-crunching, salt-shaky effects. Paul Dickow’s chameleonic output as Strategy has produced a vast, wildly diverse set of releases over the years; he filters his sonic environments though dub, house, pop, ambient, and basically anything he sees fit for the track, and building upon each one with intriguing results. Filling out the bill is Seattle’s own sonic tinkerer, Briana Marela, who weaves and loops ethereal tree-nymph vocals through smart-folk, lo-fi electronic, and chamber-esque music, creating a beautifully angular indie sound that picks up where the Books left off.
