The Presets are performing at the Odgen Theater tomorrow co-headlining with Dragonette and openers Classixx. In all honesty, the three could be headlining the evening with strong new(ish) albums from both the Presets and SoCal’s Classixx. The Presets’ latest release, “Pacifica,” has a tinge of Darren Emerson from Underworld sprinkled for good measure on Australia’s best hope to follow in the footsteps of Cut Copy. “Pacifica” is a step in the right direction of using more instruments versus leaning too much on the electronic element with a more organic feel compared to previous efforts.
Classixx’s “Hanging Gardens” have just released their newest offering in what sounds like a steamy summer evening on a rooftop in a bustling city. The title track is a slow simmer that eventually culminates into a a soft banger setting the stage for the full album. The contribution from DFA’s Nancy Whang on “All You’re Waiting For” is a strong second, but the rest of the release has been on non-stop rotation.
