Emperor X, KindKeith, Middle Mass

If Daniel Johnston had suffered from Red Bull addiction, the ensuing aural chaos might’ve sounded something like freak-folk patron saint Emperor X. The brainchild of Jacksonville-bred nomad Chad Matheny, the project combines glitchy tape looping with the verbose songwriter’s nasal charm. Prismatic 2011 bender Western Teleport stands out as a strange and beautiful vision that could only come from the mind of a Berliner by way of Florida. Opener KindKeith provides virtuosic piano support with ultra-danceable recent drop “Can You Trust Me?”, while shoegazey DIYers Middle Mass round out the bill with a potent dose of melodic post-punk. – Genevieve Wood
