Graves

Sematary Forever

Chicago’s Sematary Records released their first ever complication cassette today called Seminary Forever. The label launched last month with a 10 point ambitious and laudable mission statement headed by the goal to give a platform to POC and LGBTQ+ youth to be able to present their art on a wide scale.

The collection contains 11 tracks ranging from noise pop to R&B and features contributions from musicians across the country and local musicians Asbestos Lead Asbestos, Graves, Dog Mom, and Fahrenheit 808.

   

Wooden Indian Burial Ground at Mississippi Studios 3.13.2014

Wooden Indian Burial Ground has gained a following in the last few years, playing a million shows (including The Deli's CMJ showcase in NYC) and signing with Mon Amie records. Each player in the trio gets lost in their own instrumental force-fields, and still the music rises and falls together into a hypnotic rabbit hole of lo-fi psych-rock. Their new Problems EP has a tighter, quickened pace since their 2012 self titled;  seamless rhythms, vocal harmonies, and well-placed feedback rule over spacey notes.  It's more of a wild garage style with an underlying mind-fuck wave that leaves you kind of dizzy. If you haven't experienced the live performance, get thee to Mississippi Studios on 3-13.

With Graves and Mothertapes, $5 bucks. - Brandy Crowe
