Motor Skills, Airstrip, Wowser Bowser

When: Fri., May 11, 9:30 p.m. 2012

Two years ago, Motor Skills hooked up with someone they call a local "semi-famous producer/engineer." That session proved so expensive that Christopher Hutcherson-Riddle went as far as spending two weeks in an experimental drug trial just to raise funds. Despite this and other sacrifices from bandmates Mike Dillon and Andy Holmes, the whole thing ended badly. Re-motivating was hard; their new album, Moving Island, is worth the trouble. This time, the guys skipped the drug trials, found a new producer and recorded a set of '80s-influenced postpunk/progressive electronic tunes they feel so confident about that they invited a bunch of bands to futz with them on a free compilation entitled reWORK. They'll celebrate the release of both with openers Airstrip and Wowser Bowser. —Ashley Melzer
