Coming out of post-quake Ōtautahi, tabletop electronica quartet Les Baxters are releasing their self-titled album this Friday, the 14th. Their sound draws on "a love of sci-fi movie soundtracks, Deutsche Elektronika, goth-doom, and ambient techno." Check out the video for their track Toshi II:

The band features some esteemed musicians and former Flying Nun stablemates: Namely, John Chrisstoffels (The Terminals, Dark Matter), Dave Imlay (Into the Void, No Exit), Paul Sutherland (Into the Void, Fence), and Erin Kimber (Sheet Sweater). Unfortunately they disbanded in 2019, but fortunately they are playing one show this Friday at Space Academy in Christchurch with Motte and The Irreverent Mr. Departments. Unmissable!
