Ou Où

8 p.m. Saturday, December 17. Pig Slop Studios.

The words "ambient," "drone" and "minimalist" often appear in discussions about local group Ou Où; the duo uses all three as tags on its Bandcamp site. While not inaccurate descriptors — its tracks sprout from landscapes of gurgling synths and R2-D2 bleeps — listening to its Builded EP feels quite different than sitting through a Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Sunn O))) or Philip Glass record. Patience is hardly a prerequisite for enjoying Ou Où. Intelligent drum programming and prog-like structures give Builded the exciting flow of a well-crafted DJ set, suggesting that, unlike many ambient, minimalist drone acts, Ou Où is no snore live.

Sounds Like: Four Tet having an LSD-fueled staring competition with the introduction to "Baba O'Riley" by the Who.
