The group Sound Tribe Sector 9 (or STS9 for the acronym-inclined) has built a career on fusing galactic electronica with funk grooves and a live show endurance rivaled only by the most veteran jam bands. They bring their seasoned stage show to this year’s Outside Lands Festival in support of their newest EP, When The Dust Settles.
Grab the title track below for free; it’s a surefire doozy of a jam. A steady disco groove propels martian melodies across an unfurling electronic sound odyssey. A lesson for all gear heads out there: this is how you bring your machines, computers, and iPads to life.
Renowned for late night to sunrise live performances, STS9 has the talent to keep you dancing for hours on end. Practice for this weekend by loading up “When The Dust Settles,” pressing ‘repeat’ on your preferred MP3 player, and lacing up your most rugged dancing shoes.
