Viernes is an experimental electronic duo from the Orlando
area keyed into the atmospheric lining of the machines used to create
the music. The opening of "Swimmer's Ear" featured on recent release Sinister Devices
plays like a winter's carnival ride for the ears before growing into an
undulating and magical sonic landscape. Nothing else they've put out is
too far removed from the implications of that first track's title -- a
little heady, a little watery, not unlike waves flowing directly from
the sea into one's body.
Filling out the evening at Propaganda: Orlando's Attached Hands creating
delicate alien noises you can dream to; Tumbleweave's pulsing
digi-dance is like a series of explosions; Hear Hums' spacy noise tends
to swirl around you -- it's less a concert, more an experience. And
then, of course, there are the Jameses, who will surely cut into all the
pretty, noisy ambience with their face-melting capabilities, just to
mix things up. All this and it won't cost you much either. Get there
early; that's a lot of magic to twirl around in such a small space.
Viernes, with Hear Hums, the Jameses, Attached Hands, and Tumbleweave. 8
p.m. Friday, July 30, at Propaganda, 6 S. J St., Lake Worth. Call
