Last month, Hundred Waters celebrated the release of their sophomore album The Moon Rang Like a Bell by throwing a tiny three-day festival for fans and friends in Arcosanti, an off-the-grid city in the Arizona desert. The event was perhaps a perfect physical manifestation of Moon, a collection of electronic future-pop songs that are beautiful and spacious, somehow both a little alien-sounding and also very grounding. On Saturday night, the Los Angeles-via-Florida 4-piece (who are signed to Skrillex’s label OWSLA, and have toured with Grimes, Julia Holter, and the XX) bring their show to a more conventional setting, Brooklyn’s Glasslands, but the sonic pilgrimage will likely be no less awe-inspiring.
