For the deerlodge.fm showcase's grand finale, Matthewdavid and Sun Araw Band delivered mind-numbing sets of electronically driven psych music.
Matthewdavid stood solo at his computer-powered production station and created meticulously layered electronic tapestries. He incorporated elements of dubstep, drum and bass, and funk into his beat-driven sonic palettes.
Sun Araw Band took the stage next, and performed an intense set of tripped-out psych music. The three-piece collective utilized driving bass rhythms, smooth guitar chords and fuzzy synthesizer lines to create its unique brand of dance music. To top it all off, Boise artist Tyler Bowling projected intense visual images on the stage’s backdrop.
