Similar to the dichotomous nature of their name, blues/psych rock foursome Daisychain produces a sound that is a beautiful series of contradictions: ambiguous, yet easily comprehensible; brutally honest while also soothing; rooted in classic rock and still trippy enough to please the ears of 21st century listeners. The female-fronted band from Chicago, who are also the best of friends, use music as a tool to connect and most importantly, channel feelings around the craziness of modern life. Moody, soulful, and sultry, Daisychain’s classic rock ‘n’ roll sound is one that a wide variety will relate to because it is based around universal emotions.
Bobby Hussy’s new group Wristwatch finds its jagged sneer from the very first moments of their eponymous new LP. Screwed leaps onto the speakers with a venous guitar chewing at the brain with no mercy. The bile burn and bone crunch of the track is pushed by the chaotic snap of electronic drums and synths that ride skirt the fray with dark intentions. The song brings to mind the burnt wire bliss of Angry Angles or Mind Spiders, with tethers reaching back to Screamers territory as well. Fans of Bobby’s catalog (The Hussy, Cave Curse, Fire Heads) should be more than satisfied with the burn that Wristwatch is laying down.”
