A+E had a real hot streak in 2017, making a strong case for Chicago’s most exciting act of the year. Consensus amongst those who have seen these two jam recently is that they have been passed Excepter’s baton whether Excepter knows it or not! In a year that saw Alex Beam and Erica Gamble (yes, the one who shoots all that good video and helps out with this site!) continue to perfect the blend of pseudo-techno industrial beats, Eurorack wormholing, and reverb moaning, this set from Peanut Gallery may be their finest.
Right around the end of last year, A+E recorded several hours of material, so hopefully get get a release or five out of them soon. In the mean time, be sure to check out their SoundCloud for some samples.
