Back on the festival circuit this year, with appearances slated at Lollapalooza and Austin City Limits, DJ/producer Alison Wonderland arrives at Observatory North Park on October 11. Advance press for the Fuck Me Up on a Spiritual Level (FMUOASL) Tour promises “a brand new production” with “an entirely new setup and visuals,” featuring music from her forthcoming studio album.
Now a vet of big stages such as Coachella, Tomorrowland, and EDC (both in the U.S. and U.K.), it’s anyone’s guess whether her album will include the current single “Messiah,” a temple-pounding collaboration with producer M-Phazes that has already scored over four million global streams on Spotify. Her debut full-length Run hit number one on Billboard’s Top Dance/Electronic Albums chart, a feat seemingly capable of any number of anonymous hit-machines cranking out nearly identical tracks each week, but Wonderland’s powerful vocals tend to rise above the paint-by-number productions. Recommended for anyone who ever wondered what Adele would sound like if she joined Flosstradamus. The bill includes Elohim.
