Big Thursday and Outer Embassy are going to bring you the best rhythms in this galaxy. Danceable beats set the mood for vocal effects, harmonies, and synth magic. A groovy Thursday night of experiments, dreams, and transcendence.
Big Thursday is a dreamy, hazy, summer party. They are an Oakland duo (Michael Bridgmon and Hannah Howard) whose sound is heavily influenced by effects processing, synthesizers, and filtered vocals with simple melodic lines. Experimental Trip-Hop sounds of soul, funk and jazz are also key players. The name “Big Thursday” is inspired by the duo’s repeated pattern of going out on Thursdays and staying in on the weekends.
Oakland, CA’s Outer Embassy was born from the desire to find a distinct crossing point of 70s Krautrock experimentalism, West-African soul rhythms, and sonic space synthery. Equal parts spacebeat boogie, pulsing keyboards and starry-eyed melodies. A group equally balanced for late night dance floors and planetary strolls. Groove with the beat or follow the sound.
