NYC Negative Gemini plays three CMJ shows this week - Bowery Electric Tomorrow (10.14)

Queens-based Negative Gemini - a project started by composer/programmer Lindsey French after her hip hop group dismantled - has been getting some attention this year after the release of debut EP "Real Virtual Unison." Her electronic sound escapes the synth-pop cathegorization, borrowing insatead from the dark, tense, and drony aesthetics of the early new wave (as in the more electronic, less extreme cousin of post punk). Our favorite track "Forget Your Future" (streaming below), never lets the tension fade, flirting with dissonance, while extremely filtered vocals harmonize in a crescendo of desperation. Negative Gemini has three shows scheduled this week within the CMJ Music Marathon, the first one at Bowery Electric on Wednesday 10.14. - Photo by Julia Nichols.
