01.06: Kate Clover begins Bootleg Theater residency; listen to "Channel Zero"

LA scene staple Kate Clover finished recording her debut album Channel Zero last year, but instead of rest on her laurels, she's chosen to hit the ground running in 2020 with a residency at the Bootleg Theater. The electricity of songs like her debut's title track shoots out full force on stage, something that local scenesters know and curious punk and indie fans ought to learn more about. With a sound and look forged from the fires left lit by protopunk idols Debbie Harry and Iggy Pop, Clover's sound rings in the new decade not just with a bang, but with a barrage. Clover plays the Bootleg on 1/6, 1/13, 1/20, and 1/27, with different acts joining her every night. Get yourself to one of her shows, and take a listen to the title track from Channel Zero below. - Will Sisskind

Weaver is the Answer to Your Psychedelia Dreams

 Weaver opened for a toasty crowd at Spider House Ballroom on Saturday night. Formerly a two piece from Israel, the band recently added a bass player from the Bronx: Liraz on guitar, Eliav on drums, and Febian on bass. They may be injecting new blood to the Austin music scene, but their style of psychedelic rock feels right at home here. 

Red lights reflecting off the red velvet curtains behind them, the whole room glows red with their passionate energy on stage. The hypnotic rhythm of the drums and deep throb of the bass replaces the cadence of your heart beat, while the shredding guitar spirals you into your inner mind. The loops and dips of one song felt like a Tom and Jerry chase scene, running your mind in circles. There’s no lyrics or song titles, only raw sound and chemistry. There’s not even a set list. Listen, close your eyes, and forget what decade you’re in. A couple of songs from their newest EP are available on Bandcamp, Amaranth and Alice

Sans lyrics and sans titles, the last songs of the set were improvised raw garage rock magic. The instrumental 3 piece tip toes along grunge and punk, but stays true to psychedelia. The bassist and guitarist angle themselves toward the drums allowing the sounds to reverberate and dance off each other. A delicious, fuzzy synergism fills souls and overwhelms the room. There is an attractive mysteriousness surrounding this band that makes you want to hear more.  

Weaver is playing Free Week - catch them at The Sahara Lounge on January 2nd. Check out their instagram for other future shows; their bio aptly promises a “fuzz-laced hit for your inner mind.”

Answering Machine wax unoptimistically on "Bad Luck," play Gutter Bar 1.9

Self described “sad and fast” Brooklyn powerpop quintet Answering Machine live up to their own characterization on new single “Bad Luck,” embedding their most recent output with a healthy dose of shredding and brightly lachrymose lyrics. Unwashed guitar tones underscore the progressive churn, positing a melodically grungy instrumental line, made clean by the occasional explosive solo and front woman Samantha Campanile’s sunny vox; neither depressive nor wholly optimistic, “Bad Luck” is a good groove for a warm (yet overcast) afternoon, or visiting Coney Island during the offseason. Listen below, and see Answering Machine at the Gutter Bar on January 9th, supporting Math the Band.
