They’re called Hundred Waters, but it’s abundantly evident that, elementally speaking, this Gainesville, Fla., quintet is far better represented by air. (In Ayurvedic terms — which feels appropriate somehow — they’re clearly Vatas.) It’s in their spacious, gracefully hushed arrangements, where stately neo-baroque faerie-folk commingles with the gentlest of lap-pop glitchery and sputtering digital twinkles; in their gauzy juxtaposition of the cerebral and the fantastical; in the effortless way they drift through nigh-unchartable time signatures; and especially in Nicole Miglis’ breathy, frequently choralized whipped-cream wisp of a voice (a dead ringer for Twin Sister’s Andrea Estella, with a dollop of Regina Spektor loopiness and a whiff of Joanna Newsom). And now, after initially releasing their self-titled debut on the tiny Elestial Sound label, they’ve signed with Skrillex — a fiery, Pitta sort if ever there was one, with seemingly zero musical commonalities save that they both own computers — for a remix EP and forthcoming rerelease on his Owsla imprint. Well, here’s to seeking balance in all things.
Sat., Sept. 1, 9:30 p.m., $12, with Julia Holter, Johnny Brenda’s, 1201 N. Frankford Ave., 215-739-9684,
