Princeton, N.J.’s Seth Haley — EDM heads call him Com Truise (pictured) — has spent his career running from drum ’n’ bass grooves and toward slow-motion soul and mangled but melodic lo-fi pop. His bold, synthy, souped-up arrangements and fluid, catchy melodies are warped and grimy, and there’s not enough to go around — just 2011’s Galactic Melt and 2012’s In Decay (both on Ghostly International) and that’s it. Opening for Truise at the TLA on Monday are Diplo’s best pals from Brazil, the hyperkinetic Bonde do Role, whose bracing Baile funk has been replaced on their newest album, Tropical/Bacanal (Mad Decent), with something stewing and simmering. Singer Laura Taylor still acts like a coked-up Energizer Bunny; this time out, she’s just talking slower.
Mon., Oct. 22, 7 p.m., $12-$14, TLA, 334 South St., 800-745-3000, livenation.com.
