Ulrich Schnauss, Sound Pool and Ylang Ylang 

When: Sun., Oct. 10, 9 p.m. 2010
Price: free
Ulrich Schnauss masterfully marries idyllic IDM to shoegaze rock. At times his music has an icy majesty that can drift into saccharine new age-isms, but at their best, Schnauss's compositions combine unexpectedly funky beat programming with the sort of lush synth and guitar textures and wistful melodies that make you want to slowdive with your bloody valentine. After two outstanding albums—Far Away Trains Passing By and A Strangely Isolated Place—Schnauss dropped a dud with Goodbye, but his live shows supporting that 2007 album were much more sublime than that weak release would lead you to believe. Three years later it's hard to know what to expect, but as Schnauss was picked to open for Chapterhouse on their recently postponed US tour, we might just get rocked right down to our soles.
