More Gorgeous are clever, moody art-punks attempting to blend Killing Joke’s industrial goth stomp with Swervedriver’s dynamic shoegaze assault. They embrace jagged, damaged tones and textures without compromising their sophisticated pop sensibilities. The results are big, loud and tightly-wound noise-rock anthems.
A DEER A HORSE
Dark, heavy, and full of tension, A Deer A Horse’s music is a rare breed in Brooklyn’s DIY scene. Comprised of Rebecca Satellite (vocals/guitar), Angela Phillips (bass/backing vocals), and Dylan Teggart (drums), the trio have embraced the raw and dirty aspects of their city and created something simultaneously urgent, sludgy, and cathartic with their newest EP, Backswimmer.
Ribbonhead is a three piece from Chicago settled somewhere in the neighborhood of hardcore/post-hardcore/punk/post-punk. All explosive intensity, spit and sweat flying.
Alouette is a garage-rock band formed in Chicago, one-half raspy vocal & guitar, one-half pulsing drums. The duo is Endless (guitar, vox) and dB (drums). They began playing shows in Chicago in late 2016 and their début EP, called “Psychomotor,” will be available on cassette tape and digishit on 25 May 2017.
