Many songs from his new Heavy Duty LP/CD on Reluctant Recordings were performed, but made new again by some little live tweaks made by his guest musical partner, Phillip, who is in the band known as Syrup in Portland, and also the one-man-band known as Xocotl. A tasteful little garnish of contact mics, effects, a rack tom on the floor, some weird little syno-drumpad, an oscillator, mouthsounds...nice touches that add texture without stealing Rex Mattress' spotlight.
What you don't get is seeing Rex charismatically work the crowd....You gotta go see that! So, peep the tour schedule in the next blogpost!!
