Religious Girls

Oakland's Religious Girls don't write songs so much as recombine DNA — or seed fractals or probe wormholes or crack open crystals within crystals within ... sorry, is this getting too sci-fi? Because these guys are all about penetrating the nth dimension with a stack of synthesizers and a drummer who just can't be stopped. This is music like Terry Riley was making back on A Rainbow in Curved Air, like Animal Collective tried during their feral-electronic years and like Dan Deacon does now by making something that's more of a communal, conceptual experience than a pop song. Those are all musicians who found something powerful in a certain combination of melody and repetition, and that's how Religious Girls work, too. Prepare for transport.
