Rainbow Arabia's jet-set electro

March 25, 2011 |  3:26 pm

In today's Calendar, I profiled the local electronica duo Rainbow Arabia, which has long soldiered on the Eastside experimental fringes before getting a major leg up with a deal from Germany's Kompakt Records. Rainbow Arabia's full-length debut, "Boys & Diamonds," is its strongest yet by a landslide, rife with percussive exotica and some of its snappiest pop melodies yet. It might even allow Danny and Tiffany Preston to quit their day jobs, which in Danny's case, is strangely apropos to their music. Read the whole piece here, and catch them at the Echoplex tonight.
