Drift-ing Away

San Francisco quartet will get jazzy with Slint.

So as you probably know, Slint is Spiderlanding Saturday night at the Showbox.  Make sure to get there early, though, to catch the Drift.  At a late-April show at Neumo's opening for Japanese noise-gazers Mono, the San Francisco quartet played a mellow but engrossing set of ambient, jazzy, dubby shoegaze that lived up to the band's name. Woozy guitar shapes intersected with keyboard drones, trumpet, upright bass, and laid-back drumming (at one point the drummer used a bow on his crash cymbals to spooky cool effect). These guys are definitely fans of Miles Davis's fusion period, that's for sure. After the jump, a few more photos I shot that night.
