Yum Yum, Tre Slim and Har-1

The electronic psychosis of Yum Yum inhabits a really dark place. With blown-out beats, narcotized raps, and ominous abattoir synths, this is music that leaves a gummy trail of residue on your skin (metaphorical) and in your ears (possibly real). In other words, it's perfect late-night party-sleaze music, and Yum Yum's second album, Dark Meat, is the kind of record you hope your little sister never hears. Boasting a cornucopia of guest rappers, it comes from the possibly deranged subconscious of Minh Tran (who is, full disclosure, a Mercury contributor). Tonight also serves as a farewell to Tran, who will soon be moving from Portland to Chicago. It'll be a chance to hear some fucked-up beats and score a copy of Yum Yum's new one from local label Futro Records. And it's also a chance to say goodbye to a great dude who's responsible for some incredibly warped and inventive music. NED LANNAMANN
