German composer Hauschka is just as comfortable with using drum machines for percussion as he is with Tic Tacs. But his new recordings certainly take a cue from the backbone of the former, melding his circuitous piano playing with something that resembles dance music. For his New York show at Joe's Pub, he used a live drummer, too—watch a lively performance of "Radar" from that show.
