After cutting their teeth with four drummers and a recent tour to Malaysia, GANGLY YOUTH of Louisville, Kentucky is finally hitting their stride. 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.
Christian DeRoeck began LITTLE GOLD as a way to exorcize the demons that had accumulated during his tenure with psychedelic revivalists Woods. The lineup shifted gradually, then suddenly, and finally in 2012 DeRoeck left NYC for good to settle in Athens, GA. He reassembled LITTLE GOLD with his good friend John McLean (of Dead Dog and Todd Killings) and they continued to do what LITTLE GOLD has always done, craft delightful pop songs about the seedy underbelly of day-to-day existence.
TODD KILLINGS was founded by a 14 year-old John McLean (Dead Dog, Nasty Intentions) in 1994 with a leftover bottle of brandy, a dictaphone, and an Angry Samoans album in the pine barrens of southern New Jersey. TODD KILLINGS remained the secret recording outlet for McLean’s pop songs, unlistenable noise, and screamo riffs. TODD KILLINGS finally found the enthusiastic and talented rhythm section of Christian DeRoeck (Little Gold, Woods) playin’ fuzzy melodic bass and Chase Merritt (The Mammies, Sleepy Co.) tapping on the tambourines & floor tom with a pair of glowsticks.
Former Louisvillian and one-time Sapat member AARON ROSENBLUM will be providing “laid-back field recording grooves” between bands for your listening pleasure.
