Ego Likeness

Source: www.egolikeness.com

Ego Likeness was created in 1999 by artist Steven Archer, a DC native, and writer Donna Lynch in Baltimore, Maryland. Taking their name from Frank Herbert’s classic science fiction novel Dune, the band began as an experimental/ dark trip hop project. Throughout the course of four full length albums and several EPs, Ego Likeness have explored numerous styles from darkwave to trip-hop to rock.

Ego Likeness signed with Metropolis Records in 2010 to release their fourth album, Breedless. The album showcases their dark electronic trip hop sensibilities overlaid with Donna’s passionately emotive vocals. While many may compare them to Curve and Collide, Ego Likeness continues to take their music to darker corners of the human psyche.

In addition to touring extensively with The Cruxshadows, Voltaire, Ayria, Angelspit, The Ludovico Technique, Ego Likeness has had the honor of sharing the stage with The Damned, Peter Murphy, Chris Connelly, Collide, Razed in Black, Bella Morte, Das Ich, Rasputina, Iris, Decoded Feedback, The Azoic, More Machine Than Man, In Strict Confidence, Combichrist, Stromkern, New Model Army, And One, Seabound, Attrition, Assemblage 23, Nitzer Ebb, Aesthetic Perfection, Terrorfakt, The Gothsicles, and many others.

Ego Likeness has performed at festivals throughout the US and in Europe, including Dragon*Con (Atlanta GA), Convergence 11 (San Diego CA), Dracula’s Ball (Philadelphia PA), Ring Con (Fulda, Germany), Balticon (Baltimore MD), Black Sun Festival I (New Haven CT), Freaks United (DC), Eccentrik Festival (Raleigh NC), Reverence (Madison WI), Wicked Faire (Somerset NJ), WTII Mini-Fest (Chicago IL), several Electronic Saviors Benefit shows, and others.

Stoneburner

Stoneburner is the solo project from Steven Archer that combines tribal fusion electronic dance music with experimental sounds. Steven Archer is a multifaceted musician, artist, and writer.  He is best known for his work with the electronic rock band Ego Likeness (Metropolis Records) as well has is abstract electronica project ::Hopeful Machines::.  His music has been used in several feature sound tracks including the recent award winning documentary Small Small Thing. He has also been commissioned to score a video for NASA on the upcoming OSIRIS-REx mission.

Stoneburner is his vision of the music and philosophy of Frank Herbert’s “Dune” book series. It fuses traditional organic instruments and vocals from all over the world with modern electronic dance music in an attempt to tap into the books technological-tribal aesthetic. His hope is that the project will do justice to the novel’s vision of Arrakis and it’s warrior inhabitants.

Live shows are intense and fluid, consisting of multimedia video projections and often incorporate tribal fusion belly dance troupes.

He has written and illustrated several books available on Amazon.com as well as freelance art for several publishers including Weird Tales magazine. His artwork and jewelry can be purchased from the Ego Likeness etsy store.

More information can be found on the Ego Likeness website or on the Ego Likeness Wikipedia page.

Summer 2015 Noteworthy Gigs

There are a bunch of fantastic shows coming to the Twin Cities over the next few months. We like to keep you informed, so here are the details of a few that caught our eye and a little bit about why these are going to be killer events. We hope to see you there!

The Rope, Thunderbolt Pagoda, Claps, Gloss

June 10
7th St. Entry
8 pm / 18+ / $5
Details / Facebook Event / Tickets

Many of you already know The Rope, especially after their amazing performance at this year’s Goth Prom. For those of you who have yet to experience The Rope, they are a dark synth rock band influenced heavily by the post-punk sounds of the late 70s. They’re known around town for their engaging performances, passionate lyrics, and dark yet danceable music. This is a very strong, well architected lineup of Minneapolis talent. Rounding out the bill are Thunderbolt Pagoda (heavy, proggy, space-rock), Claps (minimal synth pop), and Gloss (dream pop, shoegaze). Their sounds are diverse, but complement each other well.

En Esch (Slick Idiot, ex-KMFDM), Go Fight (Jim Marcus, ex-Die Warzau), Ghostfeeder

June 23
Amsterdam
9 pm / 21+ / $12 adv / $15 door
Details / Facebook Event / Tickets

Wax Trax fans, do not miss this show! En Esch of KMFDM and Slick Idiot is touring in support of his brand new album, Spank. Check out this great review from Intravenous Magazine:

Songs such as ‘Give The People What They Want’, ‘Do Me’, ‘We Love To Hate’, ‘No Guts No Glory’, ‘Ich Bin Ein Berliner’, ‘Spaenk’ and ‘This Party Ain’t Over’ cover everything from dance-friendly electro-industrial, through to hard and heavy NDH. He even throws in a curve ball with the annoyingly addictive and demented ‘I Hop’. The album presents a full cross-section of En Esch’s strongest song-writing styles and some memorable collaborations with the likes of Guenter Schulz, Erica Dilanjian, MMTM.

En Esch brings with him Chicago’s Go Fight (electroscuzz featuring Jim Marcus of Die Warzau).

Go Fight were last here in 2012 and since then, they’ve released two full length albums and numerous singles. Their brand new sophomore release, Napalm Baby, was released in April and has been receiving rave reviews:

However, amongst all these different themes and motifs comes the awesome music that this band has managed to perfect in a short span of time. They describe themselves as “Electroscuzz”, which is pretty much a self-made genre. But, after giving a listen to this clear cut production, I can only describe that as a mixture of industrial, funk, electro, and a little bit of everything else in between the smaller lines. Expect a lot of upbeat experimentation and naughty nonsense that somehow manages to work very, very well.  (Brutal Resonance)

Freezepop, Dance Assault, The Electric Witch, Duck Duck Punch

July 18
Nether Bar at Mill City Nights
8:30 pm 18+ / $13 adv / $15 door (ticket link coming soon!)
Facebook Event
Kilted Farmer Koncerts show

It’s been over four years since Freezepop traveled to the Twin Cities. We’re big fans of synth pop and are very much looking forward to having them back! Freezepop shows are always super high energy and full of geeky fun. Joining them are up and comers Dance Assault, who’s funky electronic pop is sure to get you moving,  The Electric Witch (retro sci-fi inspired synth pop), and Duck Duck Punch. KFAI’s DJ SLT will keep you entertained between bands.

KMFDM, Chant, Inertia

August 15
Mill City Nights
8 pm / 18+ / $22
Details / Facebook Event / Tickets
Kilted Farmer Koncerts show

KMFDM need no introduction, so we’d like to spend a little time introducing you to the fantastic tour support – Chant and Inertia. Chant is a tribal-infused apocalyptic drum project that has developed a reputation for blistering stage performances while touring extensively with KMFDM, Lords of Acid, My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult, and Angelspit. London’s Inertia (electro-industrial-rock-dark pop, Metropolis Records) are touring in support of their brand new album, Existential, out this month. Make sure you arrive early to catch Chant and Inertia!

Haujobb, Dissociate, Echo Signal

August 24
Nether Bar at Mill City Nights
18+ / $15 adv / $20 door (ticket link and full details coming soon!)
Kilted Farmer Koncerts show

The consensus on Haujobb’s opening set at the Skinny Puppy / Front Line Assembly show in December was that it was way too short. Haujobb were the highlight of the evening for many, and we’re pleased to bring them back to Mill City Nights in the Nether Bar for a headlining performance. Locals Dissociate (IDM / noise) and Echo Signal (post punk) will kick things off. And after the show, be sure to head over to Hard Mondays at The Saloon for more post-concert fun!
