Get Lost in the Apathy of Soft Kill

Punishing isn’t the first word you’d think to describe Soft Kill, an official SXSW artist, but the more their gothic barrages of post-punk and shoegaze pummel into you, the apter the label becomes. On Savior, the Portland-based outfit buries most of their synthesizers into a thundering vessel of fuzz and shadowy guitars. Like streetlights quickly appearing and vanishing again as you drive past them, moments of joy appear only to get smothered in a wave of rumbling toms and a peal of crashing cymbals. It’s a relentless hail of gloom and doom, something akin to The Cure without reveling in any of the performative aesthetics of goth music; Soft Kill is purely here for the raw ennui.

Noise Pop Showcase: Rex Ruit at the Starline February 28th

We’re happy to report that Oakland’s own Rex Ruit will be playing at The Starline Social Club this Thursday the 28th as part of Noise Pop. Tracks like “Vertigo” and “South” give this rocky post-punk album a lighter feel. Lovely guitar melodies blend with vocals that come in and out of clarity and really push this album into an almost dream-pop beachy realm while still keeping that alternative feel the band is known for. They’ll be part of a pretty killer lineup: Black Marble, Spiritual Cramp and Shutups at one of our favorite venues. -Michelle Kicherer, Associate Editor

B-17 - Garage Space Rock flyin' to the Horseshoe 03.14

B-17 are a psychedelic garage rock band that’s bringing back that sloppy MC-5 type sound. The guitars are fuzzy and heavy while the drums thump and the vocals drone. Influenced by vintage garage rock like the Stooges but also the heavy space rock like Hawkwind, their latest record “Goodbye” will have you rockin’ out while flying through space. You can witness it all live on March 14th at The Monarch Tavern with The High Dials (Montreal) and Lacquer. – Kris Gies
