White Williams @ Union Hall: A Pleasant Surprise

Last night's secret guest opener for Metronomy was none other than New York (via Cleveland)'s synth prince, White Williams. For roughly a half hour, WW debuted a handful of laptop centric tracks likely to be featured on his forthcoming sophomore effort due out in early 2009. The demo selections sound a bit fiercer & more schizophrenic than anything on his debut LP (Smoke). However, the performance was ultimately a divisive one. It was painfully obvious to see that half the crowd was loving every last beat of the fresh tunes while the other half was seemingly unimpressed. I happened to fall into the former group.

Visit White Williams at his MySpace page. Download a WW MP3 at bottom of post.

this guy got booed and verbally abused when I saw them support vampire weekend.

Which was strange, as I was enjoying it!
