Tycho

Four albums deep into his audiovisual experiment Tycho, unlikely IDM sensation Scott Hansen has formally and seamlessly morphed the project into a live band. Joined by guitarist/bassist Zac Brown and drummer Rory O’Connor, the graphic designer-turned-ambient-composer delivered another chill-out tapestry of swirling synths, fleshy bass lines and soporific grooves with last month’s LP “Awake.” Hansen’s soft-psych visuals aid the trio’s soothing live show, lending an aesthetically appropriate morning glow backdrop for the San Francisco-based troupe’s tranquil instrumentals. Moody dream-pop duo Gems open. Michael Rietmulder
