They just completed a stint warming up crowds for Ladytron and the Faint, but these Brooklyn avant-pop ladies' record-release party is worth catching even if you just saw Telepathe at Webster Hall last week. On Dance Mother, which they recorded with Dave Sitek of TV on the Radio, Melissa Livaudais and Busy Gangnes bridge the gap between TVOTR's future-soul rock and the art-damaged experimentation of freakier Big Apple bros like Black Dice and Gang Gang Dance; they're dedicated to exploring texture and tone, but they don't wanna pay for it with melody and groove. Following this gig, Telepathe head to Europe and Japan, which will keep them away from home till the summer. Don't sleep.
