Baltimore’s Multicult are steadily earning their place atop noise-rock’s Mount Olympus. Many have come before with guitars a-squealing but few have really earned the right to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with bands whose names are spoken with as much reverence as Big Black, Unsane, and The Birthday Party. This grimy trio transcends mere revivalism with their unabashedly groovy rhythm section and strong sense of tunefulness that should place them right alongside your favorite 80’s weirdos. Plenty of “research bands” resort to stylistic genre exercises instead of writing good tunes. Multicult are miles away from such nonsense: their songs are slathered in motor oil but they’re still bound to get stuck in your head. Hypnotic, manic, and catchy without being cloying or anthemic: this is the soundtrack to a truly wild summer. One that you pay for in jail time and/or doctor’s visits.
Check out their self-titled LP on Sleeping Giant Glossolalia and their 7″ on Amplified Noise. You can also stream/download all their music on their bandcamp.
Catch em on saturday night at Starlab in Somerville!
