Com Truise/Clark

When: Fri., June 2, 9 p.m. 2017

Representing the more vintage-synth side of the electronic world, Com Truise seems to have been quietly plotting his first release of new tunes since 2011; Iteration is due out this month. It’s a good time to tune in, because Truise (Seth Haley) promises his idiosyncratic “neon-streaked melodies, big drums, robotic grooves and bleary nostalgia.” Take, for example, “VHS Sex,” which appeared on that last album, Galactic Melt. It was the sort of thing that evoked all the above and offered a danceable beat for any underground venue cloaked in strobe and beam. It’s heady at times -- and Truise belongs to what some might call the “intelligent dance music” scene -- but it’s also earnest in a way that few mainstream electronic artists are these days, which might help explain the long gap between albums. “It’s basically like I’m scoring this film in my head,” he told Fact recently, “but that film I’m scoring is also somehow my life.” (Sandy)
