Xeno & Oaklander
Xeno and Oaklander are a minimal electronics girl/boy duo, and they are based in Brooklyn, NY. They began writing music and soundtracks in 2004. Liz Wendelbo is French / Norwegian and Sean McBride is from Maryland. They record their songs live in their Brooklyn studio and play analogue synthesizers and instruments exclusively. They have worked with NY producer Chris Coady, and have recorded with producer Drew Brown at Hospital studios in London. They have toured the US, Europe and Russia numerous
times, and they play extensively in New York in music venues, art establishments and festivals such as Chaos in Tejas, Buchla Source of Uncertainty, and the Moog showcase at SXSW. They have also performed at SF Moma, PS1 Warm Up, Miami Art Basel, the Zrich Kunsthalle and the New Museum in New York. Xeno & Oaklander have recently scored a soundtrack for Swiss artist Fabian Marti. Their latest Remixes are for British legend John Foxx; and French electronic artist Philippe Laurent.
Minnesota's Claps are taking synth pop to it's roots: synthetic hand clapping and vintage keys. Their arrangements make good use of space, leaving the melodies to carry the weight of the song. Of their most recent EP No Party, online zine Reviler says, "For a young group, the band has a refined sound that shows command well beyond their years. "
