R.Ariel, Stupid Idiots, Midnight Boi, Angel Parade

As R.Ariel, Phoenix, AZ twentysomething Rachel Crocker creates shifting sound movements punctuated by loping drum machine and gauzy vocals. The 10 atmospheric songs on the recently released This World cassette exist at the uneasy intersection of drone and trip-hop, equal parts Grouper and Tricky. Crocker is currently in the midst of an eight-week tour in support of the record as well as her first book, In North America, a photo-heavy, stream-of-consciousness work about her life as a traveling independent musician. Also on Monday’s Go Bar bill are locals Angel Parade, Midnight Boi and Stupid Idiots.
