Xeno and Oaklander
The Brody Wilkinson Emerging Artist continues with the band that launched it all, Xeno & Oaklander.

X&O epitomizes the cool aesthetic of the underground minimal electronics movement, positioning their work somewhere between the popular and the avant-garde. Also known as Cold Wave, they exclusively play synth and drum machines but don’t be confused; this is not a show played off of a laptop. These machines are classic from the 80s and as analog as it gets.

"Wendelbo's voice drips and warps like a Dali painting, giving the song elastic movement." - NPR

"These two perform like the last three decades never happened, strictly analogue, with piles of vintage gear strung together with patch cables. Squint and you might think you’d been transported back to Sheffield, England circa 1979." - Brooklyn Vegan
