Jetman Jet Team are in the opening slot at the High Dive this Saturday, September 13th. Kingdom of the Holy Sun are also playing the gig.
Although they do not have a full-length out currently, the three songs available on their bandcamp seem to encapsulate - if not their whole sound, per se - some of the ways in which they mill their instruments for sonic machinations.
"Candy Loop" is an engrossing example of how the harsher palatte of noise-fueled shoegaze can become a beacon for bliss. It is clear that Jetman Jet Team do not take directives from any particular band or influence; their guitars' metallic and mechanical reverberations blend with more mystical incantations to achieve a disorienting whirl of soundmaking.
In contrast, "Need Action" can recall certain experimental electronic acts like Boards of Canada or M83. Dreamy with a chit-chattering beat, the short song appeals to similar impulses as their other material while still making a distinct, floating impression.
To catch Jetman Jet Team this Saturday the 13th, make sure to get their on time - they play at 5pm. The show costs $5. Stream "Candy Loop" below and check out their bandcamp to hear several other songs.
