These days, there’s plenty the modern, semi-experimental side of indie rock seems obsessed with. Songs that fearlessly plunge their way forward, regardless how many jarring twists and turns they take along the way…endless amounts of instrumentation piled up for new and exotic sounds and textures…genre after genre, strained for unique bits of window dressing; bands like Animal Collective, Grizzly Bear, and Yeasayer offer their audiences robust blends of experimental artistry. Though Philadelphia’s Pattern is Movement
certainly offer plenty of these characteristics, their music proves originality can also be the product of a more stripped down approach. In this performance from the After the Jump Festival
, Pattern is Movement prove it’s the product of brawny, firecracker drum beats, imaginative keyboard swells, and spooked out vocals that aimlessly glide their way wherever the moment takes them. - david pitz
