Golden Retriever, Litanic Mask, Valet, Pinhead in Fantasia 

When: Sun., April 6, 8:30 p.m. 2014
Price: $6
Golden Retriever's third album, Seer, is a lightning strike stretched out to 40 stunning minutes—you'll be shocked and awed into dumbfounded incredulity by its intensive, deliberate slow motion. The duo of bass clarinetist Jonathan Sielaff and modular synth player Matt Carlson have a far greater range of sound than those two instruments suggest; Seer is filled with cosmic night-sky transmissions, sylphlike underwater lullabies, heartbeats amplified to canyon-sized magnitudes, and forest sounds from planets not yet discovered. Against significant odds, Sielaff and Carlson have made a robust and worthwhile catalog of music out of their very unusual musical pairing, with each of Golden Retriever's recorded documents offering new surprises along the way. Seer is their latest, and—perhaps this is not surprising anymore—it is a stunner, possibly their best work yet. NED LANNAMANN
