electronica / Saturday, June 22 at 12:00 pm

Layered, electronic instrumentals…

fiveighthirteen is mike effenberger on keys and synths, nick phaneuf on guitar, bass and samples, and mike walsh on drums, cymbals, and percussion. The band formed in 2007 under a slightly sillier joke name in Mike Walsh’s Somersworth basement. Since then, they have been active at festivals and venues throughout the region. Chris Hislop of Spotlight Magazine glowingly reviewed their debut record, GLACIAL, calling it “One of the most interesting, imaginative, and challenging records to come out of the Seacoast, maybe ever. Celebrating the world of down tempo, fiveighthirteen’s sonic exploration of the genre is a definite head-turner, and a historic recording from some of the Seacoast’s finest.”

The band’s lush, organically electronic sound ranges from beautifully broken improvised song-form pieces to ambient music awash in delay and nostalgia, as well as sometimes drifting into a thoroughly sideways interpretation of Radiohead’s landmark record Kid A in its entirety. Their biggest influences include Boards of Canada, Brian Eno, Portishead, Squarepusher, but their sound is unmistakably theirs.
