AUTOMATES, a multi-discliplinary art collective that includes DE’s very own AY, will present their Massages By Strangers performance at the great In the Soil festival’s Rhizomes program in St. Catherines. Live electro accompaniment will be provided by DE so, with everyone’s consent and respect, expect moody feels, rubs, stretches in a church tower! Event info here.
One year ago, this humble duo was the first band to join the freshly minted Electric Bat Records, who helped us birth our debut release – Vol. 1. Thanks to EBR, we’ve made many new faithful friends and reached tonnes of ears. So the arrival of the label’s sampler this week is an anniversary of sorts. This PWYC collection of songs contains a selection from our growing roster of labels mates, which features the latest femmes and guys contributing to the electronic noire scene (hey, SLUTMOTHER, Scrape, AnaToneDaMania) and includes acts as far away as Turkey (yo, Art Diktator). Please enjoy.
