If you like music that sounds like machines dying a soft, comfortable, weirdly pretty and sepia-toned death (too morbid?) then you'll probably be into Huerco S., whose Colonial Patterns LP (Out Sept 24th on Software) is an album full of beautiful electronic moments that aren't so much pastoral as they are eerily soothing. The stock reference here would be old science films on wobbly VHS, but it's deeper than that. "Prinzif" is made up of multiple movements, all linked together by a breathy drum pattern and a loping, almost sloppy synth line. It sounds like watercolors look. Huerco S. plays MoMA PS1's final Warm Up of the season this Saturday, September 7th.
