EarthCry/Bypass Circuit

When: Sun., Jan. 29, 9 p.m. 2017

When an album beings with a song called “Transdimensional Camel Ride,” you listen. And that’s how things kick off on EarthCry’s 2016 album Sun Path. It’s a tribal beat, pairing woodwinds with synth and head-nodding snare snaps. One minute in, and you’ll feel like you are strolling through an acid trip on the back of a dromedary. The rest of the album unfurls in similar analog-electronic, mixing a drum-and-bass thing into heady world music vibes. Take “Source Codes”; composer Anthony Thogmartin recreates the burbling sensations of our ancestors’ early ascent out of the primordial ooze. This is sharp production (think Four Tet-type stuff), and it’ll no doubt make for a chilled out night in Cleveland. (Sandy)
