DANNY CORN, GULLS, JOSH T., DRUMPLESTILTSKIN, LINCOLNUP, BEN TACTIC
(Mississippi Studios, 3939 N Mississippi) It's refreshing to hear electronic music that rides the edge of experimentalism while holding true to a rhythmic foundation that grooves enough to make a crowd move. With an assortment of quality remixes and releases under his belt, underscored by his signature West Coast sound, Danny Corn generously deals out the syncopated, bass-heavy music that's enveloped in the exotic sound design that speaks so well to connoisseurs of electronica. His live shows are an eclectic mix of material and are always a good time. CHRISTINA BROUSSARD


TALKATIVE, SOCCER BABES, NO MORE PARACHUTES, COWBOY + STATUE
(Slabtown, 1033 NW 16th) My favorite thing about Frantically, the cassette that Talkative released in 2012, is how little its songs resemble each other. There's zooming art rock, tropically tinged chanting, subterranean acoustic post-apocalyptic lullabies, and at least one absolute masterpiece, the whippit-echo of "Saturday," which sounds like Animal Collective trying their hand at Liars' Drum's Not Dead, with a bit of Bruce Springsteen's Nebraska thrown in for good measure. Frantically is available for streaming and download on Bandcamp, although cassette editions are sold out; Talkative says a CD version will be available in February. NED LANNAMANN
