Continuing their credo of ‘no limits,’ the Philadelphia-based trio PURLING HISS fail to repeat themselves, shaking out a bunch of weirdo pop numbers rife with ramshackle; tactile and free. PURLING HISS have broken out of the basement, run through the bedroom and are now loose, out in the streets. Their new album, Weirdon, was released this September on Drag City.

STATE CHAMPION started in 2006 as a moniker for the early acoustic experiments of Ryan Davis (Cropped Out, Sophomore Lounge). It has since evolved into a rock n’ roll band with a Chevy van and not one, but two vinyl records. Their sophomore record, Deep Shit, received quite a level of acclaim. Because it’s awesome! “STATE CHAMPION uphold the long and storied history of Louisville and Chicago’s music interconnected… Digging into the dregs of Royal Trux sludge Americana, angular punk, and torch ballads done with malice, STATE CHAMPION accentuates the punk suffix in cowpunk. Weird, wonky, and wild, STATE CHAMPION are a sight to behold live with their unbridled energy and extremely art-damaged take on electric folk.” – The Decibel Tolls.

The Other Side of Life is proud to present:

WOODEN INDIAN BURIAL GROUND (Portland, OR; on Mon Amie)

and

GANGLY YOUTH (Louisville, KY)

Monday, June 23rd
at NACHBAR
969 Charles Street (at the corner of Charles and Krieger)
9 PM, 21-and -over
FREE!

WOODEN INDIAN BURIAL GROUND formed in Portland, Oregon in 2007. As a duo the band employed banjo’s, chord organs, fuzz guitars and other various instruments, making a glorious racket across the Western, Central, and Southern United States. This incited an 11 track album of lo-fi experimental folk tunes that they self-released in 2008. The band grew in numbers and influence, playing shows under various names with various members until settling down with a stable lineup and signing with the Mon Amie record label in 2010.

Watch WOODEN INDIAN BURIAL GROUND‘s video for “Helicoptor” here:

After a bit of a hiatus and some lineup changes and whatnot, GANGLY YOUTH of Louisville, Kentucky return! Their sound is a mix of jangly noise, fuzzy pop, and a no-perfection required style. One might be reminded of bands like Sonic Youth, The Pixies, or warped cassettes playing favorite pop songs.

Watch GANGLY YOUTH play “What’s Yr Weirdness” live here:
