Beat Connection pairs beats that ebb and flow between smooth and harsh with instrumentation and lethargic vocals that revel in the notion of feeling good (check out the track “So Good” as a starting point). The Seattle-based electro-pop four-piece already stopped in Spokane earlier this year; this time, they’re on their Product Placement Tour touting October’s Product 3 album, which took three years to record. The whole record is an exploration of the balance between Top 40 catchiness and indie obscurity. Working within the middle ground, the band has settled into a sound that will only continue to bloom.
