Music has gotten so meta that Publicist has emerged, a Google-resistant, one-man drum/vocoder synth-plosion by way of Weird War’s Sebastian Thomson. With a glamorized ennui (just listen to the track “Casual Spring Look”), Thomson does Chromeo without the irony, reveling in a seedy disco synth pop whose best tracks feature an extra-sketchy Ian Svenonius. Supporting the night at Death By Audio are the YACHT-like Free Blood and Portland progsters CAVES.
