Watch out, girl; Dead Astronauts are honest. They tell you like it is. Things like you don’t yet realize the destructive nature of love, the fires spreading everywhere, and your bones have left you with no one to hold. Oh, and also, stars explode. Their music is basically an icy cold hug of wisdom best consumed as a vampire smothering aid.
This is DA’s freshman release on Nueva Forma; a reverent and true 80s inspired EP of eight lo-fi new wave tracks, four of which are Perturbator’s retrofuturistic synth remixes – reinventions, really – of the first four tracks. For instance, the original B-side track is a faux-haunting, melodramatic sort of dead-eyed sleepy jam. Pertubators’s remix has this sexy, swelling, cosmic void vibe. Two wild sides of the same righteous coin, if you ask us, so do yourself a solid and flip it. And just try not to notice Glenn Arthur’s morbid-galactic album artwork while you’re at it.
Join us on October 10th, 2013 for a mini-installment of Kontrast at DISJECTA as part of Design Week Portland, a platform that explores the process, craft, and practice of design across disciplines as seen through the lens of Portland’s most vibrant independent programming. The event will be kicking off with a reel review in partnership with AE PDX + Colorcubic at 6 PM, then Kontrast will begin at 8:30 and last until 10ish (or until we get booted out).
Complimentary drinks and food provided at event.

Guillermo Scott Herren is nothing if not proven. It’s hard to think of a name that carries as much weight in both hip-hop and avant-rock circles as Prefuse 73, who in the past year alone has been asked to remix TV On The Radio, Pelican, BLK JKS, Cornelius, and producing the L.A. duo: “Voices Voices” e.p. on Manimal Records. Not to mention his collaborations with School of Seven Bells and Battles. These interactions have clearly helped to shape the evolving Herren’s sonic aesthetic, which has expanded to include Diamond Watch Wrists twisted visions of prog-rock & “machine funk” and Savath y Savalas global psychedelia.
An evening of aural bliss with 3 of Portland’s finest electronic leaning masterminds at Replicant, an all ages music/arts venue, a recording studio, an event space, and a boutique of tapes, comics and more.
Special Guest DJ sets by Nathaniel Young, and visuals by Dreaming Android Films.
