DFA Robots & More = Woo! Alright!




The Juan MacLean have the potential to deliver a live show as bubbly and breathtaking as that of fellow DFA label mates LCD Soundsystem. To what extent the music created by John MacLean (formerly of Six Finger Satellite) and Nancy Whang (the female voice cheering her guts out on LCD’s “North American Scum”) will inspire audience members to apathetically sway like androgynous robots or jump up and down like kids on Pop Rocks is anyone’s guess. The new The Future Will Come contains both extended house anthems and, as the Juan MacLean widely acknowledge, sterile ’80s deadpan-delivered lines a la Human League. Tour mate The Field’s latest album Yesterday and Today features Battles drummer John Stanier adding to the organic side of the Swedish artist’s electronic productions. It’s hypnotic material that flows like dry ice in vodka. Do not miss local opener Laserfang who bring increasing amounts of mind-blowing noise and go-go- gadget magic to each new live show.
