Thirsty City

For fans of freaky beats, stoned samples, trippy tracks, and hallucinatory head-space, Thirsty City is ground zero for all the wild, weird music made by this city's beatmakers. Dropping Gems' Brownbear makes electronic alchemy with elements of hiphop and glitch, but on a thick forest carpet of Pacific Northwest pine needles. Seattle's Diogenes and Portland's Northern Draw recently collaborated on a split cassette called Weed Island (hmm, wonder what type of weed they're referring to?); it's a heady, dense burst of sound that zooms down the radio dial like a waterslide. Automatic Thoughts weaves chill blankets of soul and kicking electronica. And hiphop producer Roane Namuh has a deep sonic bag of tricks. Tonight, go to the far side and beyond with the help of some very skilled sonic pilots. NED LANNAMANN
