Tyler Despres's Science Partner plays April 23 at the Meadowlark
If you've seen Tyler Despres play around town, on his own or with Dualistics, you've been exposed to his cleverly sarcastic sense of humor; it's one of his hallmarks. That sardonic persona is on display, at least partially, with Science Partner, his latest endeavor, whose most recent effort is humorously titled The Rocky Mountain News. Initially put forth as a solo project featuring an evolving cast of collaborators, Science Partner (due at the Meadowlark on Saturday, April 23) has grown into a full-fledged band, one whose songs have an unexpected sweetness, earnestness and immediacy. Despres and company have a knack for playfully capturing that otherworldly sense of urban mythology that Tim Burton so expertly articulated in his 1980s films.
