4AD's recent signing, Celebration, is a dynamic three-piece that features members of former bands, Jaks (on punk's Three One G) and Lovelife (Troubleman, Jagjaguwar). Co-founder Sean Antanaitis plays all the music for Celebration except the drums (that would be David Bergander's duty).

This means a thrilling balancing act of organs, electric keyboards, Moog bass pedals, and something called the guitorgan, an electric guitar hand-modified to produce sound through an analogue organ tone. He plays all of these instruments not just in the studio (hell, even Dave Grohl can do that) but on stage as well. It is a sight to behold.

Katrina Ford handles vocal duties with a passionate, guttural ferocity. Their debut self-titled album features guest appearances on several tracks by their friends, TV on the Radio. Celebration is a band interested in making music with primal intensity, and putting on shows full of sonic hijinx and euphoric energy.

Celebration plays Rothko, Thursday, February 16th.
