Subculture Reverse

Tonight: Subculture in Reverse. Music with phonetic reversals, backmasking and reverse tape effects! Music from Eurythmics, Kate Bush, Four Tet, Boards of Canada, Robert Fripp and more!

This show was inspired by Annie Lennox’s exhibit, “Now I Let You Go” at MASS MoCA in North Adams, MA. When entering the exhibit, you hear a song that sounds familiar but perhaps that it’s being played in reverse. Sure enough, it’s the Eurthymics’ “Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)” played backwards… and it sounds amazing! (We’ll play it tonight along with a slew of other reverse sound, voice and instrument effects.)
