There are few artists as delightfully mercurial as Laurel Halo, who migrated from her native Ann Arbor to Brooklyn before signing to the revered London label Hyperdub and decamping to Berlin. Following the rapturous reception of her debut LP, Quarantine—which topped the Wire's 2012 best albums list—she took a sharp left turn from the vocal-led electronics to the challenging and rewarding Chance of Rain the following year. This summer saw Halo releasing her best album yet, the lushly obtuse Dust. Live, she's a force to be reckoned with, commanding an audience's attention while keeping the floor moving. This show is a must for fans of adventurous electronic music.
