Naytronix is a solo alias of Bloomington, Indiana native Nate Brenner, a multi-instrumentalist, vocalist, and producer known for playing bass for Merrill Garbus' tUnE-yArDs. In May 2012, Brenner's Naytronix released a self-titled four-track EP containing a cover of Janet Jackson's "What Have You Done for Me Lately." He followed it two months later with the full-length Dirty Glow, a playfully sprawling mishmash of primitive electronic pop, ramshackle disco-funk, and skewed chamber pop. Garbus, a horn section, and a few other instrumentalists pitched in while Brenner performed the bulk of the music, from bass to drums to keyboards. The album, like the EP, was issued on the Plug Research label. It was followed in 2015 by the full-length Mister Divine. Harvested from hours of material written while on the road with tUnE-yArDs and Naytronix, and recorded at New, Improved Recording in his adopted base of Oakland, California with guitarist Mark Allen-Piccolo and percussionist Robert Lopez, it took on a much more reflective tone than its predecessor, with more articulate arrangements assimilating its experimental electro-pop. ~ Andy Kellman & Marcy Donelson
