Recording: Transcombobulation

Artist: Transcombobulation

Song: Fourth

Recorded at The Tranzac – Southern Cross Lounge ("Mike Smith August Residency, Week 2"), August 11, 2014.

Mike Smith's Transcombobulation - Fourth

Full review to follow. It's forever a struggle to get crowds out for an early show, but I'm a big fan of the night's first timeslot down at The Tranzac. Start 'round 7:30, wrap up before ten, get home and in bed at a reasonable hour. So I was well-pleased to see that Mike Smith was taking over the early slot for four Mondays in August, each with different musical collaborators.

Week two took Smith's new compositions out for a trip to the planetarium, presenting them in dual synth mode in company with Jonathan Adjemian. There was some fine noodling to be heard here — this one even veers a bit into revered SID chip demo territory. [Once again, you can hear some more from this night over at Smith's soundcloud.]

Also! Transcombobulation lives! This duo will be performing again (along with the Kyle Brenders Quartet) at Ratio on Thursday, September 18th.
