Berkeley singer-songwriter Spellling makes beautifully layered, experimental pop tracks using just her keyboard, voice, and loop pedal, weaving compositions that evoke avant-pop artists such as FKA Twigs and Björk. Her name evokes the spellbinding qualities of her music, as well as her witchy aesthetic. The artist is teaming up for a split tape with Kohinoorgasm, a singer-songwriter making minimal pop in English and Hindi that incorporates singing, chanting, harmonies, understated beats, and shimmering percussion. The two artists celebrate their tape release with a show at One Fam in West Oakland on August 5. Collander, who makes bedroom electro-pop with feminist and queer themes, joins them on the bill, and the show also celebrates her CD release. Guests have been asked to avoid wearing perfumes and heavy scents to the show to be respectful to those who may be sensitive. The event is wheelchair accessible, as well.
