Montopolis Power Supply
Man, Woman, Friend, Computer
Montopolis Power Supply is the brainchild of renowned Austin composer Justin Sherburn. The group plays excerpts of his original scores for dance performances and film soundtracks. Super fun electro rock soaked in synthesizers and fuzz guitar.
“By highlighting instruments not typically associated with contemporary classical music, Sherburn and his collective have created a perfect soundtrack for the movie playing out your car window on any drive west of San Angelo.”
Man, Woman, Friend, Computer is the means by which Thomas Echols makes music when he is not performing various works from the classical guitar repertoire. Simple songs unfold into meandering compositions, analogue synth fetishism, conspiracy pop, polyrhythmic laments, somnambulist visions, and process music. Classically-trained, Tom was a founding member of the Grammy-nominated band Devotchka.
“Meditative and fetching, Man, Woman, Friend, Computer delivers a breakup album and overarching concept: Thomas Echols’ electronic differentiation from his guitar projects.”
