Moving Units
Autumn de Wilde

Teeming with an abundance of genres, Los Angeles seems to be the origin point for particularly rad electro. To wit, dance-punk/nu-disco trio Moving Units were borne of the City of Angels’ sonic soil. Formed in 2002 and regularly releasing singles, EPs and LPs, Moving Units’ early, more heavily post-punk-inflected work—see “I Am,” “Emancipation” and “Birds of Prey”—gets the heaviest rotation on my hi-fi; but latest full-length Neurotic Exotic is pretty darn terrific, too. Moving Units describe their sound as “a long-lost album of Italo-disco covers of Sonic Youth songs,” and well, I couldn’t describe it better myself. On Wednesday, May 7, put on your dancing shoes and amble over to Sister (407 Central NW) at 9pm. Admission to this 21-plus dance party is $15.
