Childish Japes, Maitri, Michael Wingate play The Revolution Vol. 45 on 12.19

Another month means another iteration of National Sawdust’s The Revolution. Closing out the year (as well as the decade), this Thursday’s Vol. 45 continues the series’ longstanding effort to spotlight local musicians across the genre spectrum and will feature performances by the artists Childish Japes, Maitri, and Michael Wingate.

While The Revolution’s strengths have always laid in the diversity of sound brought out to Brooklyn each month, there’s a consistent groove that permeates the sounds of this week’s three performers. For example, Brooklyn nu-funk duo Maitri’s electro-heavy, polyrhythmic jams, are matched in vibe by the soulful indie rock of Childish Japes, both inhabiting similar spaces albeit producing their tunes via synthetic keys or an electric guitar (respectively).

Likewise, Michael Wingate will contribute to the evening’s atmosphere with his own brand of rhythm and blues. Cop your tickets here and get your dancing shoes ready for Thursday.

Maitri premieres music video for "Reminder" off new LP "After Glow"

Maitri have just released a new LP called After Glow, from which they've also released a new music video for the track "Reminder". "Reminder" -- like the other songs off of the album -- captures the band's experimental blend of indie rock, jazz, funk, and dream pop. The song builds from a tense groove about the drudgery of life into an explosive soundscape which ends in a final discordant, fading synth chord. The music video also showcases the emotion behind the track: Vocalist Caroline Davis, with a painted face, stumbles through cityscapes and forests, before dipping her head into a pond and then letting herself succumb to the heat of the Sun. Watch the video for "Reminder" below. - Will Sisskind
