Glassmen, Cop Circles, Mirror Fears, Church Fire

  • Williamson Magnetic Recording Company 1019 Williamson Street Madison, WI, 53703 United States (map)

Denver duo Church Fire make synth-pop that, at its best, simultaneously aches with gothy gloom and surges with urgent, minimal funk. On the 2016 album Pussy Blood, Shannon Webber and David Samuelson craft skeletal but engaging synth melodies and mournful vocal parts that at times push the music toward a raw edge—especially on the tempo-stretching "Unused" and the lush but eerie "Trash Time." Mirror Fears, also from Denver, is the project of producer and vocalist Kate Warner, who explores a  rich charismatic mix of industrial music, Throbbing Gristle-esque experimentation, goth-pop, and driving techno on the 2017 album Eaten. Mirror Fears is absolutely one of the most intriguing electronic acts to pass through town this fall, so don't let this one slip under your radar. This show will also feature Madison experimental-rock duo Glassmen and playful but compelling Madison/Denver electronic project Cop Circles. —Scott Gordon
