Standout extended plays
20 August 2022
Who: An eclectic rock band based out of Kingston NY,
whose material traverses a variety of rock genres, such
as indie, garage, punk, psych, chill, and thrash.
New EP: 666G
The band: “In this project we take on themes of modern anxieties, such as
the abundance of (often unfounded) conspiracies that attribute to the spread
of misinformation/disinformation, the looming AI takeover, and timeless anxieties
like aging and paranoia.
In this sense, the title 666G is a parody of the 5G conspiracy. 666G is the phenomenon
of people stratifying themselves into factions of wavering extremes based on their perceived affiliation with viral half truths and convenient fictions. With all that said, we try to present a lighthearted perspective of our fucked up world in a way that we can learn to laugh at the absurdity of it all.”
Turn Up The Volume: This New York 4-piece is on a productive roll. Last March they scored their 5th LP, titled Gramppappies (you can read my review here) and the New Yorkers already hit again with a new 6-track EP. An electrical firework body of work, motorized by glowing guitar extravaganza.
Think of Interpol‘s 6-string brightness (Pawl Mawl Menthawls / 666G) on their debut LP (turned 20 today), British indie idols The Wedding Present‘s strummed sonority (The Man
In The Wall / Hot Dog Beach) and flashes here and there of Pavement‘s mid-tempo riff bravado ( To My Rotting Body and Brain / The Singularity)
I wouldn’t mind at all if Grampfather come up with some slices of new music in a few months. I’m a sucker for indie rock spiritedness in sound and vision and vocality and recommend this indie triumph strongly to all other suckers of indie rock spiritedness
in sound and vision and vocality.
Buy/stream ‘666G’ here on Bandcamp.
