Negative Scanner
"Negative Scanner
"
mp3

Formed in 2012 by lead singer and guitarist Rebecca Valeriano-Flores, Negative Scanner, is modern take on dark late '70's punk. Last year the band release two singles, but on their self-titled debut LP they carve out fierce sound steeped in plotting guitar and powerful lyrics. The album launches with the forceful "Ivy League" which find Flores falling somewhere between early Siouxsie Sioux and Johnny Rotten. It's magnetic and repulsive all at once.The entire album is relentless, clocking under 30 minutes, but pounds the listener with blissful aggression with every note. The highlight of the album has to be the lead single, "Would You Rather", which paints a picture of the sluggish journey we all seem to be on at times. Negative Scanner's self-titled debut album was released by Trouble In Mind Records on July 10th.

Marrow is preparing to release their latest album, The Gold Standard, on September 4th via FoxHall Records. The four piece band has spent a lot of time and poured a lot of varied influences into this album, but have also been interacting with the Chicago music scene in other way over the last year. Liam Kazar (singer/songwriter/guitarist) spent much of the last year on the road with Tweedy; Macie Stewart toured with Chance the Rapper; and the band as a whole was featured on Donnie Trumpet and the Social Experiment’s album, Surf. The result of these varied ties to the scene that have created a beautiful and complex album. Below is the video for the album's lead single "Paulson".

You can catch Marrow at Lincoln Hall on November 27th in support of their new album.
