Com Truise

How come Scottish IDM duo Boards of Canada never comes up in reference to Jersey chillwave guy Com Truise? Both acts go in for dehydrated, astigmatic electronic pop, and share joneses for questionable sleeve art, lysergically distressed samples, and '80s synthesizers. But while Boards of Canada was oft inclined to lay back in the proverbial cut, glowsticks rattling in its spokes, Com Truise's Betamax smudge is both busier and brawnier, less likely to melt onto the tongue like a communion wafer. Listening to debut full-length Galactic Melt is a little like riding a Segway through a shifting hall of mirrors while suffering an epileptic seizure; mood and temperament permitting, that's no bad thing. Opening for Neon Indian, with Purity Ring. 18+.
