Mutwawa

No band sounds like Mutwawa. That’s mainly because the Richmond duo, consisting of sound manipulators Gary Stevens and Jason Hodges, forsakes traditional instrumentation to create openly aggressive, analog-based expanses. Its latest self-titled offering, released on the cassette-oriented label, Ormolycka, continues the thoroughly engrossing scientific experimentation. From the subdued, minimalist seething of “Do You Wanna Hurt” to the Orwell-meets-Kraftwerk agitation, “Burn Down the City,” Mutwawa’s industrialized dance floors are imbued with a fiendish sense of purpose. It’s a slithering idiosyncratic sound that I can’t seem to get enough of. One of the most interesting groups this city has ever produced, Mutwawa unleashes its hounds of sounds on Sunday, March 20, at Bandito’s Burrito Lounge. Joining them will be fellow Richmond boundary pushers Among the Rocks and Roots, and post-everything trio Manzara. Doors open at 9 p.m. Free. banditosburritolounge.com.
