Recording: Luge

Artist: Luge

Song: unknown*

Recorded at The Garrison (Wavelength Winter Festival 18 – Night 2), February 17, 2018.

Luge - unknown

This year's Wavelength birthday celebration was more restrained than usual, sticking to one venue for three nights and having no extra daytime activities. That left the work to transforming the events to something more than just a "regular" night at a show to scene-setters like General Chaos and Roxanne Ignatius.

Night 2 was the "rock" night, with electronics giving ways to amps and drumkits. Performing during the Winter Olympics — undoubtedly the moment of widest cultural acknowledgement of the luge – this quartet sent their songs though a series of pitch-shifting hairpin turns and slippery sonic textures.

* Does anyone know the title to this one? Please leave a comment!

[Luge and Lice II are opening for Chicago freak-popsters Wei Zhongle at Handlebar on Monday, April 23rd. The next Wavelength Festival is already on the distant horizon, with Camp Wavelength once more contained to the mainland and landing at Garrison Common on August 18th and 19th. Meanwhile, the next few monthly shows, co-productions (as well as a cool Toronto Post-Punk in the Early ‘80s Music Talk) are all announced.]
