Two laptops, two producers, endless layers of hazy-woozy synths, and a dishearteningly small audience. Yes, Brooklyn electronic duo Warm Ghost did bring its icy brand of Chillwave to Eclectic last night (also on the bill: Nelsonvillians and Wes-band Saurus), and maybe the light turnout was fitting: this is lonely pop music, sparsely composed, quietly brooding, and hazy in its distinctions between 1985 and 2011. Adding to the mood: a psychedelic backdrop of swirling images and effects, reminiscent of Suckers’ stage setup back in December.
