AS BUILT PRESENTS: PALE ANGELS (NJ), KAL MARKS, SLOTHRUST (NY), LADY BONES, GUILLERMO SEXO @ O’BRIEN’S

by

The beautiful people at As Built PResents have hand-picked this supreme spread of sound – get out to O’Brien’s tonight and fuzz up your Friday! Pale Angels (NJ) weave ratty, wailing post-punk guitar leads with pounding downer drumbeats and disheveled screams: listening to their tunes feels like sitting in the eye of a tidal wave while sipping NyQuil. Kal Marks (Exploding in Sound, Midnight Werewolf, Sophomore Lounge) wears a different outfit – they’re sporting porch-blues-gone-punk guitar, slinky melodic bass, and lurching drum fills, all wrapped in deep, gritty overdrive. Slothrust (NY, Ba Da Bing! Records) gives folk-rock a shot in the arm with heavy drops and bursts of old-school rock licks. The masterminds behind Guillermo Sexo (Midriff Records) dish up brooding bouts of cosmic shoegaze with an intoxicating balance of moving melodies and droning synth. And Lady Bones has that coveted ability to move effortlessly among driving powerchords, smooth arpeggios, and head-flattening punchy riffage. Head out to Allston and get you some fuzz in your ears!
