Horse Lords (Baltimore) - Horse Lords make music for the liberation of mind and body. The Baltimore quartet's new album The Common Task points to a utopian, modernist ideal, recalling as diverse a cohort as The Ex and Glenn Branca to raucous Saharan guitar music, Albert Ayler, and James Tenney. As evidenced by the album’s title, as well as songs like “Fanfare for Effective Freedom” and “People’s Park,” the band’s penchant for radical politics is especially accentuated on this release.
Horse Lords are the Pied Piper of experimental music and radical thought. Their music is unabashedly fun, and experiencing it in a live context is an experience of collective ecstasy, each body moving to its own notion of what the beat may be. By showing just how joyous it can be to imagine new futures and possibilities, by making us dance and howl with each tectonic shift, they show how dazzling the path towards utopia could be.
Hissing Tiles (Cinci) - "You should know that Hissing Tiles are a three-piece noise-punk outfit from Cincinnati, Ohio. They fit on to punk bills like a splinter in a finger, hardly noticed until a smidgen of pressure sends out lightning bolt warnings to the brain stem, after which there’s no turning back. Sheets of keening screams, occasional coos too, wallop and buffet when these guys put on their goose-flesh seminars." - Tiny Mix Tapes
Fruit LoOops (Cinci) - Channeling early Guerrilla Toss and Skin Graft records luminaries, Cincinnati's art-punk collective pack a wallop in each conceptually rich show. Costume changes, door prizes, limo rides and precise freak-outs that cast a wide net, nothing is off limits.
