Recently Detroit’s Nate Young has been busy hitting the road with Wolf Eyes, the veteran trio of lo-fi experimentalists he founded in 1996 that’s obtained a vibrant new life since “Crazy” Jim Baljo replaced Mike Connelly in 2013. The downside of this renewed activity is that Young’s excellent solo project Regression hasn’t dropped a new record in three years—but there’s always hope. His last effort, Blinding Confusion (NNA Tapes), distilled his queasy electronic vision into its sharpest, most effective manifestation yet. There, using cheap keyboards, manipulated tapes, and analog synthesizers, Young creates an unsettling series of pieces that evoke pure dread, as if he’d scored an imaginary low-budget horror flick where the lead-up to the grisly murder is all lead-up and no murder. Sharing tonight’s bill is Aaron Dilloway, an early member of Wolf Eyes who left in 2005 to focus on his own warped tape music. Since branching out on his own he’s been wildly prolific, churning out limited-run releases on loads of different labels, including his own Hanson imprint. It’s hard to keep up with, but his work mirrors the often nausea-inducing vibe of Young’s music, though its provenance is much harder to parse, with gunky environmental sounds drifting over industrial-like loops, muffled electronic tones, grinding low-end rhythmic patterns, lacerating white noise, livewire sizzle, and a million more antisocial elements.
