The Glitch Mob in Vancouver on Thursday night. The L.A.-based trio is touring in support of their second album Love Death Immortality.
The Glitch Mob consists ofÂ Ed Ma (“edIT”),Â Joshua Mayer (“Ooah”)Â and Justin Boreta(“Boreta”). According to Wikipedia, the group formed in 2006 as a five-piece.
From the press release: “The signature instrumental motif ofÂ Love Death ImmortalityÂ ultimately proves to be what Ma calls the “glory lead”: bold, screaming synth lines that generate infectious hooks straightaway. The decidedly masculine production is beautifully balanced by the album’s all-female vocal features, including the eerie tones of Bay Area avant-darkwave chanteuseÂ Metal MotherÂ , the dreamy, ethereal voices ofÂ PitchforkÂ favouritesÂ Sister Crayon,Â YaarrohsÂ andÂ Aja VolkmanÂ of L.A./Vegas rockersÂ Nico Vega…
“In an era of disposable dance-music singles,Â Love Death ImmortalityÂ was refreshingly created with the intent to flow as an album – one designed to be listened to from start to finish, taking the listener on an aural voyage in the process.”
The new LP follows theirÂ 2010 debut full-length albumÂ Drink The Sea. That record has sold over 80,000 copies.
