Chessie, Signer, Neinvolt, Nudge (Blackbird)

First appeared in the Willamette Week, October, 2002

New York electronic/post-rock duo Chessie mixes meditative electronic noise with lush guitar pop for a winning combination. New Zealand’s Bevan Smith, aka Signer, has similar success with atmospheric dub beats at times reminiscent of the European Chain Reaction/Basic Channel sound. The combination of these two acts with Neinvolt—which reportedly is one of the Chessie guys playing solo—and local electronically-enhanced post-rockers Nudge, makes this a excellent evening of thought-provoking, hyper-hyphenated music.
