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 of Ed Ma (“edIT”), Joshua Mayer (“Ooah”) and Justin Boreta(“Boreta”). According to Wikipedia, the group formed in 2006 as a five-piece.
From the press release: “The signature instrumental motif of Love Death Immortality 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 chanteuse Metal Mother , the dreamy, ethereal voices of Pitchfork favourites Sister Crayon, Yaarrohs and Aja Volkman of L.A./Vegas rockers Nico Vega…
“In an era of disposable dance-music singles, Love Death Immortality 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 their 2010 debut full-length album Drink The Sea. That record has sold over 80,000 copies.
