Yip Deceiver is a side project for two members of the critically-acclaimed indie-pop band Of Montreal, but its sound does not hint at that fact. The duo's music is much more based in dance and R&B influences, and is much more likely to be found in clubs than its previous work. Yip recently released is debut album, "Medallius," where it presented a sound that is heavily influenced by 80s R&B artists such as Luther Vandross, Chaka Khan, and Anita Baker, combined with dance beats to create a "retro-futuristic feel".
Yip Deceiver performs with Animal and B.C. Likes You! Thursday, October 10, 7:30 p.m. at the Bug Jar, 219 Monroe Ave., $7-$9, bugjar.com.
