If you’re going to either of the Girl Talk shows tonight or Monday night, might I suggest getting there a little early to catch opener Junk Culture? Taking their name from an Orchestral Maneouvres in the Dark album, the project comes from Deepak Mantena and his laptop (live it features his brother Nitin on drums) and the project is not disimilar to Girl Talk, their tourmates and their Illegal Art labelmates. Deepak combines his songs with samples of random bits of noise here and there and combines them with electronics from his laptop and some instrumentation, all ran through a handheld recorder. Illegal Art be releasing the debut Junk Culture album, West Coast, late next month.
This is a sample of what you can expect:[video:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XQCP2yRmTlE]
