Music for Headphones at Tritone Nov. 20

Published on The Deli Philadelphia – Saturday, Nov. 20, 2010

It’s a rare occasion when a band’s handle fits perfectly in line with the actual music they produce. Case in point: local five-piece Music for Headphones. Their gloomy version of psych garage-meets-dark wave is a swagger of complex sonic lines and arresting orchestral smears that dart into sated combers of hazy, curtailed breakdowns. In other words: it’s entrancing head music – an intimate expression of resonance best felt while lying on the floor in a dark room choked with incense smoke. Joining them at Tritone tonight are hometown psych-pop outfit Stellarscope, New York’s dance-gaze quartet Soundpool, and Chicago’s post-wave distorters Bliss City East. Tritone, 1508 South Street, 9pm, $7, 21+ – Annamarya Scaccia
