What to Do Tonight: The Golden Filter

Your camera ... its ... blinding ... us
  • "Your camera ... it's ... blinding ... us"

Artists always like think that their music is “golden,” but this New York duo lives up to its claims. Formed two years ago, the Golden Filter have steadily released singles and remixes that have buzzed throughout the electronic-music underground. The band’s new album, Voluspa, features shimmering string arrangements, abdomen-shaking electronic beats, and soaring new age-inspired vocals. “Hide Me” may rely a bit too much on retro synths, but “Moonlight Fantasy” and “Look Me in the Eye” are satisfying, recalling William Orbit’s textured work with Madonna. There are ethereal qualities to the music that would make a perfect soundtrack to one of Cirque du Soleil’s extravaganzas. The Golden Filter, with the Hundred in the Hands and Pictora play the Grog Shop at 9 p.m. Tickets: $8. —Jeff Niesel
