Autolux, Gold Panda

When: Fri., Sept. 3, 9 p.m. 2010

Employing a mix of post-punk, Krautrock and shoegazing, LA trio Autolux forge a swirl of guitar distortion and spacious atmosphere. Where most recent neo-psych nostalgists revel in creamy, sultry shimmer, Autolux's Transit Transit explores more minimalist arrangements, tempering the spates of noise with fat, chewy rhythms, spare lingering melodies and somnambulant vocals. U.K. electro-pop artist Gold Panda features heavily stitched beats that throb amid hypnotic ambient washes of melody recalling early Aphex Twin. Though frequently compared to Caribou and chillwave bands, Autolux has a percussive pulse that suggests greater dance music allegiance.—Chris Parker
