Mad Conductor

Mad Conductor - Trunk Space - Thursday, January 9

Me, I'm pretty simple: All it takes for me to give a band a second look is the gumption to unilaterally declare yourselves a "legendary renegade space rock band." Of course, doing that and then not being legendary, or renegades, or (and this is especially bad) space rock is a good way to get yourself disqualified from any third looks.

Mad Conductor might not strike you as rock right away, and their status as renegades or legends is an eye-of-the-beholder thing, but spacey -- they hit spacey right away, playing a mix of gawky, skillful hip-hop and goofy electro sounds that seems intuitively right as a soundtrack to a half-stoned viewing of Carl Sagan's Cosmos.
