Chicken Jiggler Peady

I became an instant Blevin Blectum fan back when she and Kevin Blechdom performed a concert in a Mills College bathroom. Since then, she’s continued to tweak sampler knobs and laptop trackpads, coaxing extraordinary sounds and frenetic beats into a whimsical, self-referential landscape that never sits still. I ran across an excerpt of Blectum’s “Chicken Jiggler Peady” on the webpage of fellow Bay Area electronic maestro Wobbly. A quick listen will give you a little peak into Blectum’s sideways, stuttering, arcade-inspired sonic living room.
