This launch party for the black metal documentary Until the Light Takes Us features approximately zero black metal, instead focusing on indie rock dudes who use their solo projects as a way to explore wild new textures. Fenriz would be proud or maybe confused. Papa M is the long-simmering post-acoustic chillout sesh from a not-so-closet metalhead, Slint’s David Pajo, Soft Circle is the Boredoms-sized one-man joy-blast from ex-Black Dicer Hisham Bharoocha, and Rain Machine is stripped-down prickle from TVOTR’s Kyp Malone. With Kevin Barker.
