A form of independent/experimental rock and roll that uses processed beats (often recorded live with drum set, then processed via a computer and Midi-systems), heavy FX, and live guitar, bass, and vocals (although it can be instrumental as well). The term was first coined by Author, Singer, Songwriter, and Producer, Sam Oak of UnFamiliar Occurrence, but has been in use by bands like Radiohead and NIN.
