See Squarepusher perform with Eric Sharp at the Regency Ballroom on Thursday, Aug. 2. 8 p.m., $27-$30.
Ufabulum, released in May, is Squarepusher's 15th album in about as many years. Apart from succumbing to the high-concept headwear en vogue among the luminaries of electronic dance music (all of whom owe him a debt of one kind or another), British maxi-instrumentalist and unassuming visionary Tom Jenkinson doesn't appear to have noticed time passing. Ufabulum is one of his best offerings yet, sharp and tuneful and just warm enough that you might not realize there's not a single organic sound on it. To take it on tour, he also created a video synthesizer and LED lightshow — not to be missed, especially if you've always wanted to drop acid at a 4 p.m. screening of Tron.
