There have been lots of guesses, but it's probably safe to say that nobody actually knows what kind of music Jason Urick makes. I guess you could call it ambient, or maybe abstract electro collage... One thing's for sure, though—you could definitely call it experimental. Regardless of how you want to tag it, Urick himself doesn't seem much concerned with labels. His new record for Thrill Jockey, I Love You, was constructed entirely on his laptop, and its arrival establishes Urick as a kind of trash saveur, a no-nonsense producer of ultra-digital, hyper-affected electronics and voice with a knack for bridging the gap between the organic and synthetic. Having recently moved to Portland from his former state of Maryland, Urick is on a stacked bill of local talent tonight, rounded out by fellow trendbuckers Nick Bindeman of Tunnels and Gift Tapes hero Jamie Potter, AKA Million Mists. CHRIS CANTINO
