Sound Tribe Sector 9

Did somebody say, "jam band"? But wait, there's no Hacky Sack and no tie-dye, and what's with all of those laptops (like, four of 'em) onstage? If you haven't figured it out by now, Sound Tribe Sector 9 is not your average jam band. Sure, they noodle on guitars, but the five-piece is more spacy than crunchy, and when they drop acid, it's in their synth squelches (à la the Roland TB303) and not in a tab of LSD. Originally from Atlanta, they relocated to Northern California, putting out their first album as Sector 9 in 1999. Though they have a sturdy drum 'n' bass background, their last album, Artifact, had them venturing out, finding some neo-electro' and techno friends in Richard Divine and Bassnectar. The mostly instrumental opus Peaceblaster is their first release on their new 1320 imprint.
