Oh No Ono Surprise at forthebeat’s Spring Show

hooray

OH NO ONO are hard to categorize or even explain. I’ll be listening to them and think they remind me a lot of Empire of the Sun, but then I’ll play a different track and something completely different comes to mind. Seeing them live at Union Hall in January, I thought all four of them reminded me of David Bowie in Labyrinth / a 70′s dance party cast to the rising sun…

When you listen to Oh No Ono for the first time, you try to imagine how they might interact on stage and how they might sound live, but seeing them in-person affirmed all of my positive thoughts on this strangely wonderful act. Hailing from Denmark, they are eccentric both musically and aesthetically.

It was a true honor having Malthe Fischer join Hooray for Earth on stage last week at the spring forthebeat show. The night opened with Coma Cinema (visiting from South Carolina), Sunglasses (visiting from Atlanta and just signed to Lefse Records (Neon Indian, Keepaway, etc.), then Hooray For Earth joined by Fischer and members of Zambri, followed by The Royal Chains. The night was amazing. All of the bands rocked and forthebeat wishes we could re-play the evening over and over again. Special thanks to our DJs as well.

Spring’s been good to us, so now we’d like to be good to you:

Last night, Neon Indian headlined a sold out show at Mercury Lounge with some amazing supporting acts including Electric Tickle Machine, Toro Y Moi & MNDR.

We’ve seen Electric Tickle Machine about 8 or 9 times (I think…) and every time we’re just as excited as, if not more than, the time before to see this energetic foursome get the party started RIGHT.  If you don’t have their latest album Blew It Again, get it.   The album artwork is also a pretty amazing visual for your collection – you can get it online and/or pick one up at their next show.  Here is a preview.

Toro Y Moi was up next, and although I had heard some of his remixes (like Washed Out’s “Feel It All Around”), I wasn’t sure how he would translate live.  He completely sold me 10 seconds into the first song.  A one man voice accompanying the ambient electronic beats, he had the entire crowd captivated by his performance.  It was groovy and dancey, and I can’t wait to see him perform again.

Neon Indian rocked it, delivering a stellar show.  They sounded just as good live as they do on record.  “Deadbeat Summer,” “Psychic Chasms” and “I Don’t Know If You Know” are my favorite tracks – all played last night – from Neon Indian’s debut album Psychic Chasms.  Alan Palomo’s artistry is an example of why electropop is my favorite genre right now, and probably not getting replaced any time soon…
