There's no denying who's doing what at Javelin shows, ever-evolving pieces of performance art that leave the laptops at home and have more in common with the multi-tracked madness of an old Jamaican sound system than the standard guitar/bass/drums setup of a 'band'.
When they first started playing around Providence, this meant an overwhelming array of "turntables, glockenspiels and percussion." Now that they've settled in Brooklyn and stripped their restless sound down to its bare essentials, Javelin's become known as the guys with the boom boxes, a Flaming Lips-like technique that's allowed them to break down the artist/audience wall at such tour stops as New York's Museum of Modern Art.
