As Lazer Sword, producers Low Limit and Lando Kal spearheaded San Francisco's experimental beat scene for a few years. Now that they're making their bones roaming the country and the world as ambassadors of their distorted, glitchy, buzzed-out bass-thump sound, it's a treat for them to reappear in the city where they started. After becoming a favorite throughout Europe, Lazer Sword is about to release its long-awaited eponymous debut album, a collection that promises chaotic collaborations with vocalists like Antipop Consortium's M. Sayyid and Myka Nyne. Lazer Sword unsheaths its beat machines alongside L.A.-based Orientalist dance-pop duo Rainbow Arabia and East Bay tribalist noiseniks Religious Girls tonight at the Rickshaw Stop.
