Coliseum

Founded by Louisville musician Ryan Patterson and including Kayhan Vaziri and Carter Wilson, power trio COLISEUM have grown to become one of today’s quintessential contemporary punk bands. Successfully melding progressive musicianship, hardcore fervor, and vital social awareness into one constantly evolving artistic vision. Over the last decade COLISEUM have released music on a host of labels including; Temporary Residence, Relapse, Level Plane, Auxiliary (Ryan’s own label), and Deathwish. Anxiety’s Kiss is the new album from COLISEUM, recorded at The Magpie Cage by producer/engineer J. Robbins (Jawbox, Burning Airlines). Anxiety’s Kiss is a hook-laden maturation of the COLISEUM sound. Nods to their early D-Beat leanings are there, but it is their willingness to embrace Post-Punk melody and explore the space between notes that make Anxiety’s Kiss so alluring. Confidently growing within the punk world, without ever leaving it behind. A flawless, yin and yang pairing that is Coliseum at the peak of their experimental and anthemic powers.

youngwidows

Louisville’s creatively restless dark-rock auteurs YOUNG WIDOWS feature guitars that are enormous, drums that are pummeling, and trademark gut-churning bass that is more jaw-dropping than ever. Disregarding all boundaries and pushing forward with a masterful command of post-punk, noise rock, pseudo industrial, experimental doom, and goth, YOUNG WIDOWS emit the intimidating force of a 10-piece with the heart and soul of a classic power trio.

ChildBite

CHILD BITE is a Detroit-based punk/metal/noise rock band formed in 2005. Currently signed to Phil Anselmo’s Housecore Records as well as Indianapolis-based Joyful Noise Recordings, their music consists of atonal guitar melodies, distorted bass, frequent rhythmic shifts, and frenzied, howling vocals. Their most easily identifiable influences include ’80s hardcore (Black Flag, Dead Kennedys) and ’90s alternative (The Jesus Lizard, Faith No More). Their sound has been described as “enormous and predatory, from the baleful rhythm section to Shawn Knight’s [frightening vocals]” (Fine Print Mag, 2013). CHILD BITE has over a dozen releases of varying lengths, including a triple split 7″ with David Yow & Thurston Moore, as well as a 5″ EP of Anal Cunt songs featuring Phil Anselmo on vocals.

EXACTA CUBE is the electronic improvisational vehicle of Introvert (www.soundcloud.com/introvertmusic) and Nicholas Daniel (www.soundcloud.com/gigasturtz). Intricate textures mashed with complex and evolving rhythms, their debut cassette last year was the first release on the new, Louisville-based City State Tapes label (www.facebook.com/citystatetapes).

Recommended If You Like: Windhand, Black Sabbath, Earth, Sunn0)), Townes Van Zandt

Apart from fans of Windhand, the Virginia-based doom-metal band she anchors as singer and lyricist, DORTHIA COTTRELL is an unknown pleasure. Criminally so, but her new debut solo album will change that. It is a work of savage beauty, a collection of folk-blues songs as lustrous as they are foreboding. Shadows lurk in COTTRELL’s voice, a smoky, sage alto that most certainly belongs to a woman who has “whiskey in my water,” as she sings on “Oak Grove.” In that song, she confesses — or maybe it’s a boast — “I’m the kind of girl who needs a devil in a man / To satisfy me.” With little more than acoustic guitar and multi-tracked harmonies, and pedal steel conjuring some haze, the album has the unhurried intimacy of old Folkways recordings, or even Cat Power’s The Covers Record. She strips her cover of Townes Van Zandt’s “Rake” down to a skeletal dirge, giving a similar treatment to her forlorn version of Gram Parsons’s “A Song for You.” An artist of COTTRELL’s caliber was bound to step into the light, even as darkness surrounds her. (James Reed, Boston Globe)

THE MIGHTY AUROCH sound like trying to fit a truck in your ear. Formed sometime in 2007 (we think, we drink a lot of beer) THE MIGHTY AUROCH has been blowing minds and eardrums since. With their own brand of stoner rock and doom metal, many of the bars in Louisville, Kentucky have had to increase their building’s structural insurance. THE MIGHTY AUROCH named themselves after a now extinct species of buffalo indigenous to Europe. Slow, lumbering, mighty, don’t mess with ’em.

NATE HALL is best known for his space-rock/doom outfit, U.S. Christmas (Neurot Recordings). His first solo album on Neurot, A Great River, explores more textural, slow roots reminiscent of Townes Van Zandt. Nate’s second album, Electric Vacuum Roar was released last year with additional guitars by Brett Netson (Caustic Resin, Earth, Built To Spill), and goes in a completely different direction, with just two long tracks of drone/amplifier worship in the vein of Earth or Sunn0)).

Brutal Benevolence (Philanthropy At Full Volume)
Founded on June 11th, 2012 by Patrick Flanary, Amanda Flanary, Kim Bailey, and Julie Lunn in honor of Patrick’s daughter, Fiana. We’re raising the awareness of Williams Syndrome and fundraising to support children with Williams Syndrome through the power of music.

Brutal Benevolence, Inc. is a group of musicians and artists coming together to support music therapy as an integral part of the development of children with disabilities. Our intent is to enrich the lives of high needs children in the greater Louisville area by sponsoring group music therapy programs.

Williams Syndrome is a genetic condition that is present at birth and can affect anyone. It is characterized by multiple medical problems, including cardiovascular disease, developmental delays, and learning disabilities. These occur side by side with striking verbal abilities, highly social personalities and an affinity for music. WS affects 1 in 10,000 people worldwide – an estimated 20,000 to 30,000 people in the United States. It is known to occur equally in both males and females and in every culture.

From the barren streets of middle-America come SHAVED WOMEN. Reigning as the supreme harbingers of chaos in Saint Louis, Missouri, this nihilistic quartet has risen to the top through an effective mix of brutal noise rock and self-destructive hardcore punk. Informed by the caustic nature of small city-towns, the band focuses its feedback-drenched dirge into a cross-section of existential anxiety and landlocked depression. With the ability to simultaneously smolder and combust, SHAVED WOMEN seamlessly blend the warring guitar riffs of Black Flag, the rabid mania of The Jesus Lizard, and Drunks With Guns’ reckless abandon. Singer Ben Salyers’ animalistic vocal approach barrels in the red with self-loathing rage over guitarist Chris Eck’s grinding walls of feedback. Referencing the buzz-saw warp of Black Flag’s Greg Ginn, Eck weaves through a maze of discordant riffs while maintaining total control of the band’s uncompromising progression. Anchored by the dialed-in rhythm section of bassist John Birkner and drummer Tom Valli, the band easily transitions from erratic breakneck speeds to a headstomping trench crawl with metronomic vitality. The band’s unmatched tenacity results in a bevy of AmRep-style breakdowns hinged on unforgettable mid-tempo hooks and complete brainwave annihilation. This will be their second-to-last ever show!

TRAUMA HARNESS hails from the surrounding area of Saint Louis, Missouri and fling back and forth on a bipolar emotional spectrum of dark hopelessness dirges to uplifting noisy pop.

SCUZZ MASTER are a relatively new Louisville band, full of rock n’ roll abandon. You might have seen them open for White Reaper and Anwar Sadat at Zanzabar recently, but if you missed it, here’s your next chance to see them destroy!

ATIVIN formed in Bloomington, Indiana in the winter of 1994 after Chris Carothers (guitar) and Rory Leitch (drums) met at Indiana University. Guitarist Dan Burton joined the group the following spring, cementing the band’s loud, instrumental rock sound. Steve Albini and Carl Saff recorded the band’s debut EP, Pills vs. Planes, which was released in December 1996. The spring of 1997 saw the release of the “Modern Gang Reader”/”Larkin” single, the first of several releases for Secretly Canadian Records. The band worked with Andy Bryant at King Size on German Water, its debut album for Secretly Canadian, releasing it in March 1998. A return to Albini’s Chicago studio, Electrical Audio, yielded the four-song EP Summing the Approach, which was released in the fall of 1998. Taking a break while Carothers moved out west and Burton worked in the band Early Day Miners, ATIVIN reconvened in 2001 with drummer Kevin Duneman, to record Interiors, which added sparse, minimalist vocals to their sound; it was released in early 2002 to critical acclaim. Continuing on in the same vein, ATIVIN recorded their last release Night Mute in both Bloomington and Portland, using drummers Mark Rice (John Wilkes Booze) and Joey Ficken (The Swords Project) in early 2004. After a lengthy hiatus, ATIVIN are now playing select shows when and if they feel it’s right.

ANWAR SADAT “sound totally Boston circa 1982: aggressively shouted vocals, aggressive rhythms, jaggedly distorted guitars and just enough melody above the noise to make them catchy as hell.” – New York Music Daily. ANWAR SADAT has released two albums and an EP, and is currently working on their third album.

karass

Louisville, Kentucky’s KARASS uses live loops, chimey guitars, interstellar electronics, driving bass, pulsing synths, thunderous drums, and weepy cello to create sprawling soundscapes that drive forward towards an epic climax in a quirky, odd-metered fashion.

THE SHONDES (rhymes with “Hondas” and Yiddish for “shames” or “disgraces”) are a rock band from Brooklyn, NY, who play Bikini Kill-meets-Bruce Springsteen-style sing-along anthems for you. Formed by best friends Louisa Rachel Solomon and Elijah Oberman back in 2006, the band has released four albums, including 2013′s critically-acclaimed The Garden (praised by Rolling Stone, Billboard, The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, etc.). The band has toured the U.S. with Against Me! and headlined U.S. and European tours, including shows with Uh Huh Her, Electrelane, Rasputina, MEN, Caithlin De Marrais (Rainer Maria), Franz Nicolay (The Hold Steady), Mary Timony (Helium, Wild Flag), Erase Errata, Amy Ray (The Indigo Girls), Joe Lally (Fugazi), Mecca Normal, Bonfire Madigan, Party Line (Bratmobile), Lesbians on Ecstasy, Kaia Wilson (Team Dresch) and many more; and performed at festivals including CMJ Music Festival in New York, South By Southwest in Austin, and North By Northeast in Toronto.

JULIE OF THE WOLVES is comprised of vocalist/guitarist Carrie Neumayer (Second Story ManEarly Age), Stephanie Gary (Venus Trap, The Frequent Sea), Salena Filichia (Madame Machine, Venus Trap) and Becca Lindsay (The Red Nails, Minnow). Those are only a partial listing of the bands these people have been in. This lineup has a lot of Louisville musical history running through it. The name of the band comes from the 1972 book by Jean Craighead George, in which the title character must face changes and dangerous challenges forced upon her from culture, the elements and humankind. “These are challenging tunes that do not shy from pushing and pulling simultaneously, a teaming between catchy melodies and a pounding aggression.” — American Gloam.

HAILEY WOJCIK’s darkly witty lyrics and fierce aesthetic have earned her the title of “the Wednesday Addams of her genre” (The Deli Magazine), and My Old Kentucky Blog notes that she “sounds mighty fine at volumes that may disturb others who may be in the room with you.” Her music and videos have caught the attention of Magnet, After Ellen, MTV, Logo, and Girls Get Busy Zine. She has co-directed several music videos, many of which included her own stop-motion animation. Her debut album, Diorama, was produced by Dan Romer in 2010 (Beasts of the Southern Wild, Jenny Owen Youngs, Jukebox the Ghost). In the intervening years since releasing Diorama, Hailey pursued a side project, the garage rock two-piece, WOJCIK, which released an eponymous EP and an LP entitled Wise Blood, in 2012 and 2013, respectively. The Book of Beasts EP comes out on March 3rd, 2015 on cassette with Wiener Records.
