Last night we got the amazing pleasure to see the amazingly amazing Hecuba
perform at the El Rey Theatre here in LA. Their insane mix of synths, floating house-like beats, sometimes poppy, sometimes dark, and elements of trumpets and strings is straight chilling. From first song to last song, I am an instant fan. This is the music that will make peace between robots, aliens and humans. Their energy sets their glitchy loop tones which all makes complete sense when you dig deeper about the duo.
Isabelle Albuquerque (sweet last name) and Jon Beasley met in BK back in 2003 when Jon was shooting an alien film that eventually cast Isabelle as the star alien abductee (go figure!). They should have that film playing in the background at their shows. They've been making music since and are easily one of the illest couple duo's out there. The photo above is my favorite moment of their set (actually their set was my fav moment)..Isabelle puts her head on the keyboard and continues to take full control of the crowd. Can you tell that this was an amazing show?...sure I mentioned it. The LA locals ended their tour with Bat for Lashes last night but will be back at the Smell in August, which is much too long from now. Get that PARADISE album now! Miles Away
