The Nashville-based electronic, live-techno duo comprised of Benji Craig and Austin Wilkinson first caught our attention last year with their self-released, self-titled debut, which featured cover art by Ariel Pink -- who also made a guest appearance on the record. Self-proclaimed "post techno," we hadn't heard much from Jensen Sportag since, until we caught wind of a show they did last night in Atlanta with Ghostland Observatory. Turns out they have a new EP coming in December.

The new short-player will be self-released on December 2 and is titled Sergio. It's essentially a single for the song "Power Sergio", featuring three other songs and three remixes of the title track. With keyboards, trashy 80s beats, over-the-top techno with an arty sense of the absurd create surprisingly catchy songs that will mess with your frequency in numerous ways.
Jensen Sportag has one more show opening up for Ghostland Observatory tonight in Nashville at the Cannery Ballroom, and If that's not enough to entice you, My Old Kentucky Blog has reported that new Paw Tracks signee Dent May recently invited the band out to his Mississippi ranch to collaborate and Max Tunda is having them contribute to his forthcoming remix LP, as well as inviting them to open up for his forthcoming tour. Also courtesy of MOKB, are first two tracks from Sergio
