It’s weird to think that long-ago Outsiders Growing have been around for almost a decade. I remember watching them open for Sunn O))) (with Xasthur) in 2005 and even then they looked like they were still figuring out how to create those colorful, increasingly danceable ambient drones. That’s not a put down — the exploratory, ad hoc feel was compelling. After a dozen-plus releases of various sizes, you still sense an adventurous energy on their newest collection PUMPS. Matthew Gustafson directed the combustible demolition derby footage that accompanies standout “Mind Eraser.” The crowd is really into it.
