    Nice.
    You might check out the Norwegian trio Building Instrument (excellent 2014 release on Hubro label).
    Very similar. The live in the park minimalist performance Alt e Bra is fun. Vocalist Mari Kvien Brunvoll also had a superb 2012 self titled release.
    The Villalobos 28 minute remix of Brunvoll’s Everywhere You Go got a lot of hype in 2013-14.

    Mari has an interesting casual sort of performance presentation. She sits on stage surrounded by samplers, mixers, assorted electronics and samples and loops as she goes.
    The other members of Building Instrument are also in assorted other experimental projects.
