DC9 Live at El Sibil, Ep. 17: Dear Human

...and for ye on YouTube, your link.

Last week, after two weeks off, we returned to the regular filming of our weekly

DC9 Live at El SIbil

series, welcoming in Denton math-rock outfit

Dear Human

into the fold. It was quite the time, too, as our crew and group of fans that gathered at the space all sat around trying to figure out the complicated time structures behind the band's sound.

But, for Dear Human's members, all of whom have been playing within the math-rock genre for some time now, staying on point with the ever-changing time structures of their songs has almost become a second-nature thing. As you'll hear the band explain in the above clip, it's just kind of "what happens" when they write and play their material together.

And, though the band also jokes in this week's clip that they suffer for their music, it's clear they get a kick out of it. And, in turn, there's definitely an alluring quality to the songs they produce. Give the above clip a watch, and I think you'll agree.

In the meantime, if you're free tonight, come on by our El Sibil studios (122 E. 5th St. in Oak Cliff) for this evening's taping. Tonight, we welcome The Orbans into the mix. The band will be performing an all-acoustic set for us, too. Should be a good time. Things will get rolling a little after 7 o'clock. See you there.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
