-Bottomless Pit is an indie band that was formed by Silkworm guitarist Andy Cohen and bassist Tim Midyett after those legendary Albini associates lost drummer Michael Dahlquist to a fatal car crash in 2005 and has been been cranking out life-affirming greyscale guitar/bass/drums ever since.
Chris Martin, Lucy Atkinson, Matthew Reid-Schwartz, and Barrett Wilke.
-From Seattle, Washington.
-Kinski is a four-piece rock band from Seattle, WA. Their unique evocation of avant-rock is deconstructionist and heady, but also emotive and visceral: NME described Kinsi as "Like Sabbath in a washing machine during a power surge." Kinski have toured with Missions of Burma, Comets On Fire, Oneida, Mono, Black Mountain, and opened for a month of dates for Tool on their spring '07 tour. Most recently, the band has survived another Japanese tour with Acid Mothers Temple, and is back in Seattle working on a new record.
Sam Sloane, Natasha Arens, and Jeff Paul.
-From Berkeley, California.
-Vir are a post punk, noise pop trio based in the SF Bay Area, who love fuzz pedals, loops and lots of delay.
Comprised of Sam Sloane, Natasha Arens, and Jeff Paul, Vir expriments with elements of post punk, psychedelic noise and shoegaze to conjure up a glacial, dark and dynamic sound. Based in Oakland, CA but with roots in Christchurch, New Zealand, Vir has a binding affinity with many Kiwi post-punk trios such as the Gordons, Bailter Space and HDU.
Austin, Carlos, Marc, and Cal.
-From the San Francisco Bay Area, California.
-One of the Bay Area's most promising young post-punk bands, Wild Moth wants to tear parts of punk culture down. The band honors many aesthetics and ethics of the movement, but aims to dismantle others. It's sound departs from punk's insistent rhythms and concise fury; it's more nuanced, structurally intricate, and melodic. They're thoughtful and progressive, while still retaining the spirit of punk and opposing regimentation at every turn.
