Northern California's WHIRR (formerly Whirl) make an effects-laden noise that is as blatantly loud and heavy as it is beautiful, giving the sounds of 90's shoegaze a widescreen update for the post-millennial era. The young sextet's wall of lush guitars, breathy vocals, dreamy synth and thunderous drumming propel listeners into a near-cinematic realm where instantly catchy melodies and emotional, enveloping atmospheres hang in perfect balance. The group's debut album, Pipe Dreams, was released by Tee Pee Records this past March.
Boyfrndz
Boyfrndz
"New Austin, Texas, band Boyfrndz, is very well-put-together, with a decidedly math-rock bent. (You don't pack a six-string bass for nothing, right?) But they're much more than that. They merge kinetic, head-exploding release with an airy sense of song. This melodic heavenliness makes their technicality an invigorating punch and not a dragging anchor of overreaching display that kills the humanity in their music. It's the kind of experimental rock with real beauty, the kind that doesn't lose sight of the emotionality of music. Boyfrndz is just one of those bands you don't want to label with technical mumbo-jumbo. One moment you're caught in the hook with eerie vocals, bobbing your head, and the next a complicated guitar riff slams and faster-than-light drums hit you in the back of the head. If music is a journey, Boyfrndz is weaving in and out the back roads on a schizophrenic highway."
