How many records is Makeup and Vanity Set going to have to self-release before Matthew Pusti finally escapes the long shadow of The Protomen? In the five years since he put out an eight-bit remix of the local robo-rockers’ first album, he’s put out five records of completely original atmospheric electronica. Listening to a MAVS record is like immersing yourself in a lost film by John Carpenter — it leans heavily on ’80s synth, analog tape hiss and neon bleeps and bloops to produce music that works equally well on the dance floor and in a slasher movie. (It worked well as the soundtrack to Middle Tennessee filmmaker Joey Ciccoline’s short film “88:88,” which screened two weeks ago at the prestigious Venice Film Festival as a finalist in YouTube’s Your Film Festival contest.) As if the rare show by MAVS wasn’t enough to bring you out to a West Nashville house show, Ben Marcantel’s excellent Sugar Sk*-*lls, Huntsville cybernetic chiptune cephalopod Roboctopus, and local experimental electro-rappers AfroSaxon also play.
