This promises to be a bit of a unicorn in terms of Bloomington shows. Gary, Indiana producer Jlin (Jerrilynn Patton)’s masterful debut release Dark Energy was met with near universal praise last year. A dark, tense, and compellingly ambitious album with roots in the Chicago footwork scene, she’s asserted herself as among the most forward-thinking producers around right now. Fresh off playing last weekend’s Pitchfork Music Festival in Chicago, Jlin will be coming down to Bloomington this September the 16th to deliver what’s sure to be a show you don’t want to miss. Check out the video she did for the second track off of Dark Energy, “Unknown Tongues”:
If that wasn’t enough, opening up for Jlin will be Indianapolis’s FLANCH. This project, consisting of the duo Peter Timberlake and Ben Peterson, released their debut self-titled release back in February. Their music brings to mind Arca and Oneohtrix Point Never’s wildest moments, while also being very lyrical, blending these textures with great vocal features.
