I popped in on this year’s fall edition of the consistently good Sargent House label tour (Backbooth) to see one-man loop architect Mylets throw some sparks. With live construction that’s deadly efficient and jaw-droppingly elaborate, this Midwesterner is one of the most purposeful and artistic loopers around. Usually, the visual spectacle of the gimmick affords much amnesty in terms of music quality (see: Keller Williams). But Mylets’ math-punk spirit-rock is a technical jubilation that’s only made more astonishing by the fact that it’s executed by a single player. He may use technology but what he does in handling his devices with the precision of a turntablist and attacking his guitar math like a shredder is completely and fiercely live.
