Doldrums began in 2010 amidst the exploding Montreal noise scene, emerging with a genre blending sound built on rampant sampling and a sci-fi obsessed aesthetic. Now signed to Sub Pop, the group released their LP The Air Conditioned Nightmare earlier this month. They have magnified the scale of their sound to accommodate bigger stages while touring rigorously over the last 2 years. Originally the solo project of artist Airick Woodhead, the live band now includes regular collaborators Guy Dallas, Flow Child and his brother Daniel Benjamin. The new material bursts with energy and casts Airick as a frontman rather than a producer, his eerie falsetto rising above the controlled chaos onstage.
On Saturday, Apr. 25, Doldrums will be performing a headlining concert in Austin at Red 7. They will be joined by touring mates Moon King and Talk In Tongues. The best part? We have two tickets to giveaway to one of our lucky Red River Noise readers.
