Ethereal dream-pop sisters Tasseomancy and electronic experimenter Castle If are Live in the Stacks of the Yorkville Branch on Saturday, April 29th at 7pm.

Tasseomancy, formed by twin sisters Sari and Romy Lightman, bridge the divide between electronic and folk music. Their latest album, Do Easy, was released last year to wide acclaim. Inspired by William Burroughs' concept of doing easy, the album sounds relaxed but challenges the listener to wander around a musical landscape of piano, synths, steel pan, sax and flute. In reviewing the album, Exclaim! said Do Easy "makes the magical mundane, and vice-versa."

Castle If is the moniker of experimental electronic music composer Jess Forrest. Using a collection of analog synthesizers, she is currently working on a sci-fi concept album that is partially inspired by William Gibson's Neuromancer.
