MAX TUNDRA, aka Ben Jacobs, is a master of delightfully inscrutable, slyly tuneful electronic pop. His three albums recorded for Domino Records between 2000-2008 echo throughout much contemporary pop music. The first of the trilogy, Some Best Friend You Turned Out To Be, is more or less the most experimental; the second, Mastered By Guy At The Exchange, perhaps the most joyful; and the third, Parallax Error Beheads You, the most riotous. All three albums remain essential and three are being reissued by Domino this summer! A remix mixtape entitled Remixtape featuring the likes of Julia Holter and Kero Kero Bonito will also arrive alongside the reissues on August 12th. The hyperpop pioneer has collaborated with the likes of Arca, Daphne & Celeste and A. G. Cook. The natural musical predecessor to the likes of PC Music, Max Tundra also boasts a remix roster which includes Pet Shop Boys, The Strokes and Franz Ferdinand. Join us for a very special concert from Max Tundra to celebrate these reissues on September 2nd, to the very day the exact 20th anniversary of landmark album release ‘Mastered By Guy At The Exchange’.
