Show Review

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


Artist Bio

Originally a five piece group that formed in 2001 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Pattern Is Movement, would -- over time -- whittle itself down to a duo (Andrew Thiboldeaux and Chris Ward) that specialized in quasi math rock wall of sound type of stuff. Their first album, The (Im)possibility of Longing, was released on NFI in 2004, and was followed by Stowaway in 2005. The group then snagged a release deal with indie label Hometapes for their third full length ‘appearance'. By the time of 2008's All Together, the group was down to the aforementioned pair, and their resulting work garnered great praise from many different corners of the music world. - all music
