Friday night live at Transistor: XYZR_KX, Will Farina and Joshua Wentz. Sound by Jon Monteverde.
As XYZR_KX, Jon Monteverde combines beat-oriented electro-acoustic experimentation with melodicism, songwriting and melancholic hushed vocals. Over the course of three albums, his music has been described as "essential lo-fi bliss" (Illinois Entertainer), "enigmatic yet pleasing" (Giant Robot), and "pure joy" (Beach Sloth).

Also available: a Jon & Carly performance (featuring Jon Monteverde) from March 1, 2013.
Will Farina is currently pursuing a doctorate in literature and makes electronic music in his spare time. His set will be comprised of sample-based loops and atmospherics. Visit Will on Soundcloud.
