HTRK: Live electronic / noise / avant pop/rock act from Melbourne known for their subtlety of gesture and stubbornly languorous performances, this is an outfit capable of seducing audiences through disciplined waves of sonics, crisp 808 beats and soft, calm threats. HTRK’s music is not a quick-fix for restless, impatient minds; it needs to absorbed, contemplated and revisited. Listen to one of their records and you'll find yourself slipping deep into their sound world, where the cavernous reverberations of dub techno are mixed with frosted post-punk motifs and the gravelly imperfections of industrial, reimagined in the setting of a dingy basement.

"These six cerebral, spiky songs extract something touching and tragic from the mundanity of social media and social anxiety," proclaims Pitchfork, describing UK post-punk outfit DRY CLEANING's debut record. Cool to see they get it. Even cooler that the band is making its 1st trip to the US and making its LA debut at Part Time Punks!!! (For fans of The Slits, The Raincoats, Essential Logic and other classic Rough Trade greats from the early 80s.)
Listen to DRY CLEANING.
