The Seshen Hoshin Real Don Music Thursday September 30th, 2021 Doors 7:00 21+
The Seshen Real Don Music 21+ The Seshen is a San Francisco Bay Area six-piece band whose songs exist between the lines: in the space between waking and dreaming, ego and collective consciousness, at that blurred horizon where earth meets sea meets sky. Anchored by Lalin St. Juste’s sly, silvery vocals (which draw frequent comparisons to Erykah Badu) and cerebral yet danceable rhythms from producer-bassist Akiyoshi Ehara, their music pulls from a deep well of electronic influences, R&B, and indie rock. Drummer Chris Thalmann, keyboard/synth player Mahesh Rao, percussionist Mirza Kopelman and sequencer Kumar Butler make the music three-dimensional, blending live and digital instrumentation for a mercurial, transportive sound. Since 2012, the Seshen’s live show has earned them critical acclaim and a dedicated fanbase on multiple continents, as they’ve shared stages with the likes of Hiatus Kaiyote, PetiteNoir, tUnE-yArDs, and Thundercat. CYAN (out February 28, 2020 on Tru Thoughts) is the band’s most vulnerable, compelling work to date. Over a spacious, at times tumultuous sonic landscape that leans on live instrumentation, St. Juste sings of a reckoning: a hero’s journey through confusion and self-doubt, depression, and ultimately forging a way out toward the light. CYAN is a story about saving yourself. There’s death, rebirth, and a chance to look square in the mirror for the first time in a long while. To dive deep in search of a new life—one stripped of pretense or protective armor, for better or for worse.... See MoreSee Less
Black Dice Mod Prog Sic (FFR-441) There are two competing stories about Black Dice. The first is the one told about them: a tale of stony antagonists, wrecking audiences through volume, misdirection, and alien language. This Black Dice is a challenge, an endurance test, a frenzy that leaves listeners permanently different. The second is the story the band members tell themselves in a shorthand developed over decades of collaboration. In this story, the songs are rollicking earworms: magnetic, rhythmic, profoundly catchy, welcome anywhere. Unsurprisingly, the truth has always been somewhere in between – even the bloodletting squall of their first EP had hooks, while a confection like “Roll Up” still lashes out if you get too close. But nowhere have the two versions overlapped as clearly as they do on ‘Mod Prog Sic.’ ‘Mod Prog Sic’ is Black Dice’s seventh full-length, and their first in nearly a decade. It’s a wildly propulsive record. It never touches the disassociate state found across so much of their discography, working instead in the harried moments of euphoria that linger just before such breaks. Basslines strain at the end of their leashes, tones bounce like gravity is being switched on and off. Their command is absolute, a choreography performed upon listeners. Since their first show in 1997, working at the edges has taught Black Dice the bliss to be found there. “Mod Prog Sic” is the evidence. If it seems ridiculous to speak of these as pop songs, it’s even more ridiculous to speak of them as anything else. For all 25 years of their existence, Black Dice have loomed as an unrivaled, unforgettable, and influential force. Their performances are forceful, full-body experiences, with listeners afterward describing the singular kink of feeling their skeletons vibrate. This understanding of the physical force of sound has endeared Black Dice to both the damaged youth of DIY warehouse shows and the erudite spectators of vaulted galleries. This specious contradiction carries through to their community, seeing them thrive equally on underground labels like Troubleman, on Animal Collective’s Paw Tracks, and with DFA Records. Black Dice's recorded legacy reveals an obsessive focus, like loner teens taking objects apart to see how they work. This fixation on craft and composition exposes a restlessness that pushes each record to a distinct edge, impossible to conflate with any other entry in their discography, let alone with any other band. Black Dice's disquiet, their relentlessness, their work ethic, their shimmering, howling, lurking thump belongs to them and them only. - Ethan Swan, May 2021... See MoreSee Less
