Show #282: Torres

torres Show #282: Torres

Tonight is night two of the 2016 edition of FRZN Fest here in Madison at the High Noon Saloon. However, I am posting a show by someone who played last night – Torres.

Torres is the pseudonym for Mackenzie Scott, a young woman who lives in Nashville, from what I can tell. I am completely unfamiliar with her music beyond this show which, from what I’ve heard so far, ranges from ambient synth to heavy droning guitar that reminds me of Mogwai to alternapop. I must also admit that she has a powerful and emotive voice.

This is Torres’ set from last fall when she was opening for Garbage. It took place on 17 October at the Riviera Theatre in Chicago.

This is Torres doing “Sprinter”, the title track of her most recent album, from this very night in Chicago.
