The Internet 

When: Tue., Oct. 27, 9 p.m. 2015
Price: $20, $30
The Internet headlined this summer’s still-most-talked-about mini festival, Feels III, which local arts and music blog Wine & Bowties put on at American Steel Studios in West Oakland. Now, the neo-soul sextet — which emerged from the hip-hop collective Odd Future — returns to the East Bay with a show at the New Parish on October 27. The band’s latest album, Ego Death, is filled with sultry, danceable grooves that are arranged so meticulously that nothing about the instrumentation sounds superfluous. Each guitar lick and cymbal enters with impeccable timing, and the compositions feel smooth and seamless. Singer Syd tha Kyd shows off the range of her silky, seductive voice, occasionally imbuing it with a raspy timbre as she tries on different cadences. Her lyrics articulate the nuances of desire from a queer woman’s perspective — which is, unfortunately, largely missing from pop. This makes The Internet’s music a radical statement in and of itself, even if the band doesn’t position it as such. — Nastia Voynovskaya
