Com Truise w/Phantoms 

When: Sun., March 9, 9 p.m. 2014
Price: $12-$15
Perhaps it’s inevitable that every generation of 20-somethings seeks inspiration by reaching back to an era it has no concrete memory of. But if you’re inclined to saturate your senses in the 1980s, the next best thing to a full neuro-immersive simulation comes in the form of Com Truise, aka electronic musician Seth Haley (whose other pseudonyms include Sarin Saturday, SYSTM and Airliner). A onetime graphic designer, Truise’s preferences with typeface, color palette, synth textures and 32-bit sonic framework combine to induce a queasy sensation not unlike a time-travel attempt gone wrong. Looking at Truise’s artwork while listening, it’s easy to feel adrift in a haze where time loses its tangible definition. But you can also get your groove on too, because it’s not like this stuff isn’t funky. In fact, Truise describes his own work as “mid-fi synth-wave slow-motion funk.” New EP Wave 1 takes its name from an imaginary planet in a script concept of Haley’s that features an android astronaut protagonist — yet another indicator of his back-to-the-future mentality.
