Dan'l Boone, New Fries, Tranz Defonce
DAN'L BOONE (http://www.dragcity.com/artists/danl-boone)
Drag City super group brings Neil Hagerty (Royal Trux, Howling Hex, Pussy Galore), Nate Young (Wolf Eyes), Alex Moskos (Aids Wolf, Drainolith) and Charles Ballas (Formant) together for what could be the record of the year. A logical next step from the last Drainolith LP, Dan'l Boone merges shredding guitar work buried under glitched out electronics, frantic drum machine pounding and a collaged in wayward clarinet verse. A mastery of organized chaos, the sound equivalent of the CP24 screen deconstructed. Languid vocals trail across a sparse landscape as mangled guitar work tangles itself in the depths. This is the new rock.
NEW FRIES (http://newfries.bandcamp.com/)
Freak trio of Tim Fagan (ex-Induced Labour Rattail), Jenny Gitman and Anni Spadafora get riled up with some herky jerky jams Gnarly yelps over ripped guitar riffs. Real punks play minimalist prog. Deconstructed night terror jams for the modern hypochondriac Come get haunted!
TRANZ DEFONCE (http://tranzdefonce.bandcamp.com/)
Re-vamped former sludge noise band emerges from it's out ashes as one of the most ripping no wave bands. Don't miss this new tight line up featuring members of The Soupcans, Wolfcow & more. Sludge groove overlords know how to boogie, while treble hungry guitar notes bubble over top. Saxophone squeals over nascent rhythms replicated & regurgitated for your pleasure. True freak scene.
