Strange Hotels

Pop, Electronic
Location: Portland

“Jacknife” is a reflection of Ben Braden and Nick Sadler’s love of Nigerian disco/boogie and the EDM that they would dance to at nightclubs around Portland. Recording and producing music solely on iPads, using a ramshackle process involving several apps working in concert, in Airbnbs on the road and apartment studios, the result is a mix of inspired, off-the-cuff tones and well-produced, precise pop. For fans of LCD Soundsystem, St. Vincent and Prince, their second EP Mixtape II is out later this year. Don’t miss the duo at the Doug Fir with Autonomics and Gold Casio on Tuesday, November 20.
