Eight Gigs: Black Marble
Thu., Oct. 20, 8 p.m., Red Museum, $8
Four years feels like a lifetime since the last Black Marble record. Formerly a duo, the moniker is now the sole ownership of producer Chris Stewart after he moved from Brooklyn to Los Angeles. The move also marks a record label jump from Hardly Art to Ghostly International, home of Com Truise and Tycho. Black Marble’s recently released It’s Immaterial rekindles the brooding synths set to pulsating bass lines that made early recordings anguishing, yet danceable. Along for the tour is Ritual Howls, who swap out the anguish for menacing riffs. It’s still fit for movement, though. 212 15th Street, http://blackmarble.bandcamp.com.
