I know, fellow US citizens, I know. Last year, when London-based electronic duo Raime released their totally awesome and much beloved LP Quarter Turns Over a Living Line on the Blackest Ever Black label, we all thought “well, shit; we’ll never hear another peep from THOSE dudes ever again. Cool record though.”
But looks like we were wrong! Turns out, music is a business and people sometimes keep doing it! Andrews and Halstead have just announced that they’ll be coming to the US for a few dates (including stops at the Decibel and VIA Festivals, as well as Mutek MX in Mexico City and Asheville, NC’s Mountain Oasis Electronic Music Summit) starting freaking TOMORROW.
Yup, and that first-ever US show will be at Dilettante in L.A. and will feature a rare performance by freakin’ Pharmakon! Not too shabby, huh? My first show was at a shit coffee shop called “X-treme Bean.” Oh well. At least it was comparably extreme to theirs on paper, I guess.

09.26.13 - Los Angeles, CA - Dilettante $
09.28.13 - San Francisco, CA - Balancoire
