HANZ & HOUSEFIRE

As the counter dips below two months to go until Moogfest, the organizational transplant continues to connect its tendrils to elements of the local cultural scene, hoping to move everyone toward its massive fold. This joint production with Duke's WXDU-FM delivers a strong, diverse bill from area electronic explorers. There's headliner Hanz, whose 2015 TriAngle Records debut seemed to seek comfort in dystopian soundscapes of fragmented samples and flaring dissonance. Like Moogfest itself, Housefire is a recent arrival from Asheville; her frantic productions weld together harsh noise and heaving beats, a chimera that she wrestles with steely-eyed aplomb. Matt Stevenson's minimal techno suggests a color field of graded grays, with flashes of neon peeking through the periphery. GNØER is the real point of departure here; formerly the keyboard-rock trio known as Goner, the band now deploys sequencers and synthesizers to support its anthems of high obstacles and long odds. —Grayson Haver Currin
