Hot Victory tape release at The Shakedown in Bellingham 7.26

Hot Victory tape release at The Shakedown in Bellingham 7.26

Let's be honest.  We live in a world with dub-step phone apps and computer programs that embolden almost-drummers everywhere to pump out some really average beats, pick a cool name, and call themselves a band. Perhaps it is that very fact that makes a band like Hot Victory stand out so brilliant; no laptops, no click tracks, no pre-fab beats.  Hot Victory is a two piece band consisting of Caitlin Love (Drums/Triggered Synths/Monotron/Shakers/Gong) and Ben Stoller (Drums/Triggered Synths/Programming/Control Station).  The flawless duo has just released NEXUS, a three song EP that they said was "meant to challenge the boundaries of what two drummers can perform in a live setting."  Challenge they do, pushing themselves to incorporate amazing tempos with hypnotic synths live, on stage, and with total precision.  All three songs on NEXUS are ruthlessly energetic and dynamically entertaining, and the fact that they were each recorded live is good news for anyone who still believes in the experimental ambient art-form, or just plan good music.  July 26th at 8:00pm, Hot Victory will be making believers out of the folks lucky enough to be at The Shakedown in Bellingham, WA.  Sharing the bill is Lozen, Qui, and Bali Girls; an impressive line-up. And all for $6. - Joy Pearsons
