Guider by Disappears
Released: Jan 2011
Label: Kranky
Despite its self-effacing name, there's nothing restrained about this Chicago quartet. Controlled, yes: their garage rave-ups are held in check by the lockstep repetition and slowly surging energy of minimalist post punk. Wah-wah guitars lap against droning pedal tones, with sneering vocals -- "This is not a bastard song" -- suggesting The Stooges or the MC5 channeled through '80s punk. It's a far cry from Kranky's ambient releases, but it's also easy to hear how its psychedelic colors and fuzzy textures are cut from the same cloth.
