Distortion to Eleven, Phasers on Stun

Thick fuzz cream, big fat drums, distorted vocals. This Chicago band brings their rock to the edge of noise, over, and back. Their wall of distortion is solid, yet every brick’s outline is crystal clear, thanks to expert engineering from Steve Albini. Driving, calculated, chaotic, it’s like strapping a pop song to a rocket loaded with the wrong fuel.
