Since their 2006 debut _Vigils_ (reissued in 2011 by cult label Wierd Records), Xeno & Oaklander's Sean McBride and Liz Wendelbo have been investigating all manner of analog synth magic, dark lyrical phenomena and minimal wave movements. Their forthcoming record on Dais, _HYPNOS_, again pairs Liz's sensual vocals with Sean's chilly, precise electronics, but investigates the more lush grounds of polyphonic synthesis while also exploring mythical themes (a departure from pruned-back sounds of their last album, _Topiary_). On today's show, Xeno & Oaklander join Vivian to talk all about it, plus we premiere a new track of theirs called "Insomnia." On today's _Peak Time_, we're also premiering a new harder faster techno track on the Lobster Theremin label by 90 Process, Vivian kicks out the picks and there's lots of new music and music news.
