Free the Robots
Free The Robots founder (and Crosby impresario) Chris Alfaro is one of the most agile and idiosyncratic beatmakers in greater LA—he’s got anything-goes and an everything-rules record collection, and his compositions come from some kind of crazy alternate world where krautrock, psychedelia, hip-hop and dub all happened at the same time in the same place. No new album out yet, but just-out single “Ophic” (with Feeding People’s Jessie Jones singing) overlaps Portishead with Dilla and Eastern-European new-wave film and points at even greater things for FTR in 2013. He’s joined at this show by friends from/members of the mighty My Hollow Drum.
