NEW BLOOD: SHOWGIRLS
This is my jam right now, Showgirls. Ex-Silver daggers on bass, Ex-Erebus NYX and STYX/Weekend Warrior on drums and i have zero info about the lady on keys but i dig it/everything. the bass and drums are heavy as fuck, i feel like the way all the crash hits make my headphones get all fuzzed up is an added bonus in this case.
Their Myspace offers up two slabs of semi-repetitive art punk. On "No Mistakes" i feel that the bass sound carries the song throughout the recording, swaping places with the drums as the backbone and leaving the drummer to add to the ideas of the bass. at the mid-point of the song the bass provides ground for the drums to almost solo in the least cock rock aspect of the word. There is a break that i felt takes from other LA contemporaries, but is almost immediatly taken into a different direction than seen in other bands.
Vocals are faint but i have faith that they will be evident in future recordings.
they are playing in LA on the 10th and 16th of APRIL, you should check them out
check this band out HERE SERIOUSLY!!!!! no mistakes is a solid song
