PERFORMER: 

UNSANE

 

New York City's UNSANE assisted in pioneering a more aggressive, less studied version of noise rock, one that blended the scum/art industrial sturm und drang of Foetus, the Swans, Einsturzende Neubauten, and Sonic Youth with a decidedly more straightforward hardcore idiom. While developing the blueprint for noise bands to follow, UNSANE cut a remarkable swath through underground music, inspiring a devoted, cult-like following around the globe. As a power trio, UNSANE relied upon a hammering, power-press rhythm section, a searing Telecaster howl, and distorted vocals that resembled a chainsaw cutting a steel beam.

SPECIAL GUESTS: 

CHILD BITE

 

Well into their self-proclaimed 2nd phase of bandhood, this is not the same Child Bite that created those first 3 albums. What started as a thoughtful-yet-spazzy art rock band in a Detroit suburb back in late 2005 has now fully mutated into an aggressive, dissonant blend of all things punk, hardcore, sludge, surf, prog rock, noise rock & metal; a truly unique voice in a sea of copycats.

BUILDINGS

 

Formed in 2006, BUILDINGS is a three piece from Minneapolis. Their music is loud, aggressive, and dynamic. Melt Cry Sleep was the band’s 2nd full-length, and the follow up to 2008’s self-released Braille Animal (recently reissued on doubleplusgood). Engineer, Jacques Waite (off with their heads, motion city soundtrack) and mastering engineer Bob Weston (shellac) perfectly reigned in the band’s furious energy, allowing room for the 10 tightly wound tracks on Melt Cry Sleep to breathe in contrast to their raw & visceral live sets.
