Hackedepicciotto are an intriguing German duo with guitarist-bassist Alexander Hacke and artist-musician Danielle de Picciotto. The married couple are both members of Crime & the City Solution, and Hacke is the founding bassist of Einstürzende Neubauten, while de Picciotto used to sing with Space Cowboys. As Hackedepicciotto, the two create strangely engrossing passages on their latest album, Menetekel. The record is a series of soundscapes and sound collages, such as “Nosce te ipsum,” in which de Picciotto’s narration rides above a torrid wash of noise. The pair blend their ethereal voices together on “All Are Welcome” before unwinding the slow-building seven-minute tone poem “Dreamcatcher,” which is edged with Hacke’s eerie throat singing. Other epic selections include “Prophecy” and “The Long Way Home.” Also at the Love Song on Saturday, Jan. 12
