It has been 18 months since the German duo Digitalism — who spent a lot of time in Los Angeles this year — performed live here. Popping up around town on a number of occasions, including a monthlong weekly DJ residency at the Overpass, the pair’s music releases have been sporadic. This year saw the surfacing of the Youngblood Hawke–sung, MGMT-inspired “Wolves,” and a strong contender for the year’s best robot dance party theme song, “Second Chances,” sung by the duo’s own Jens Moelle. Digitalism’s smoke-and-mirrors live show is accompanied by frenzy-inducing visuals reflected off of a curtain while Moelle and partner Ismail Tufekci twist knobs and manipulate sounds with custom-made controllers for all they are worth.
