Electronic artist Blanck Mass has named a Manchester show among his spring UK tour dates, with an opportunity to hear music from his acclaimed third LP, World Eater. The ambient soundscapist, whose other life is lived as half of Olympic Games soundtracking Fuck Buttons, will be feeding glitchy samples into his mainframe at Deaf Institute. Featuring tracks like ‘Please’, which straddles twinkling twilight and impending dystopia, the album has attracted near-blanket praise from music journos, chalking up a string of 80% ratings.
Thu 4 May, Deaf Institute, 135 Grosvenor Street, Manchester, M1 7HE, Tel: 0161 276 9350, 7.30pm, £11, www.thedeafinstitute.co.uk
