Week 3 - Cleveland's Forager open with their addictive jangle pop hooks and vocal harmonies and Screaming Females bringing their DIY surreal miniatures and solo-heavy sprawl from Chicago.
Formed in New Brunswick, NJ in 2005, Screaming Females is Marissa Paternoster (guitar, vox), Mike Abbate (bass), and Jarrett Dougherty (drums). Over six albums and more than a decade of music making, the band has remained deeply individual and steadfastly DIY. They have also grown into one of the most dynamic and devastating touring bands going today.
Out February 23rd, All At Once is the trio's most expansive and imaginative works to date--a double LP that swings between surreal miniatures and solo-heavy sprawl. Concision takes a backseat to experimentation, with arrangements meant to evoke the energy and spontaneity of their live shows. It's music built across a timeline that's longer than our internet-enhanced moment typically tolerates and a testament to the band's dedication and perseverance.
