Walrus (Canada) w/ Carinae (MA), Polyshades, MFG
October 7, 2017 @ 9:00 PM - 11:30 PM$7
Walrus (Halifax, Canada)
Walrus are here to play for the sake of the song. The Halifax based band’s debut LP, Family Hangover, is a fuzzed-out electric blanket of soul with unrepentant strands of authentic heaviosity. Extensive studio experimentation can be heard throughout the sonically unique record, from varispeed warble to Spacemen-3 style saucer drone-attacks. Live, their low-key manner belies a depth and dedication to craft. This band could be thrown on a bill between Love and Sabbath and not embarrass the present.
Carinae (Hadley, MA)
Carinae is an unstable star in the constellation that is the Western Massachusetts music scene. Three part vocal harmonies orbit around patchwork guitar and keyboard textures laced with driving rhythms. Lyrics that bring you home and stretch you out. Star gazing in an open field.
“An homage to a distant star, far brighter than our own Sun, Massachusetts natives Carinae produce their own brand of psych-rock as individual and unique as their name…a strong focus on vocals and lyrical content, an element overlooked by many of their colleagues, without losing their laid-back grooves.”
-Brian Varneke, The Deli Magazine
