Neptune, Drug Yacht

When: Sat., April 13, 10 p.m. 2013

The outgrowth of a sculpture project, Neptune began in Boston nearly 20 years ago, when Jason Sanford built instruments from metal scraps and parts. That exploratory tendency has yet to expire, evidenced by last year's excellent and menacing LP msg rcvd. On "Negative Reversal," the trio rearranges time, with drums and pulses starting and stopping over the growling drone of a recent Neptune invention, the Feedback Organ. Sanford's organ is an ingenious machine that allows the band to generate, modulate and thus compose with assorted tones of feedback—think your grandmother's chord organ, except with an attitude problem. Neptune exists somewhere between industrial rock and spoken word, power electronics and post-rock, building strange sound worlds of fright and wonder. Drug Yacht is a bullying math-rock trio that began in 1997, quit in 1998 despite local acclaim, and began again last year with renewed purpose and enhanced agility. —Grayson Currin
