Portland, Maine’s Dan Capaldi sings in a high, quivering falsetto over trippy sample- and loop-based songs. Alongside his delicate voice, the one-man-band known as Sea Level incorporates a technological armory of effects pedals, synthesizers, samplers and other gear, including an augmented telephone receiver turned microphone. Imposing hip-hop beats coalesce with intricate electro- and lounge-pop sensibilities within complex arrangements. Topped with triple-decker harmonies and pitch-bent vocals, every earworm-y layer of sonic manipulation takes the listener deeper into a sonic abyss. Check out Sea Level on Monday, April 23, at Light Club Lamp Shop in Burlington.
