The Fatty Acids Play DeKalb
The Fatty Acids (a half-a-dozen-boy band) have accidentally been kicking around tunes for a half-decade in Milwaukee, WI.
They've released two albums, Stop Berries, Berries, and Berries, Berries (2010), and Leftover Monsterface (2011). They also did a split-EP with amazing friends Faux Fir, called Fat Fauxmance (2010).
According to Madison's The Isthmus:
"The Fatty Acids' summery sounds are at once carefree and raw; vocal harmonies soar above reverbed guitars and youthfully energetic keyboards, but where similarly-minded bands such as MGMT strive to be smooth and sparkly, the Fatty Acids like to rough it up a bit."
And The Shepherd Express writes:
"The second record from the Milwaukee six-piece, The Fatty Acids has the ambitious scope of a concept album, though it could just be an especially inspired stream of consciousness. Somewhere between The Flaming Lips' epic neo-psychedelia and Sufjan Stevens' Philip Glass-inspired marching band resides The Fatty Acids' bizarro anthems and plaints."
Also on the bill is heavy, funk jam band, Isle of Vinyl. From it's humble beginnings in a backyard shed in suburban Chicago, Isle of Vinyl has always been about the music. Initially formed as an instrumental three-piece, the band has evolved to include another guitar and keyboards, as well as more mature material. The Isle of today is as harmoniously shred heavy as it is rhythmically bass driven, and as drum conscious as it is vocally centered. It's as funky as a wet dog, dirty as a literal bucket of dirt, and loud as all hell.
And, we welcome Dana DeStefano & Dollparts to this line-up. Dana DeStefano is a new artist posed to take over the airwaves with her band Dollparts. Breaking into the indie-rock genre, DeStefano's acoustic-style guitar playing coupled with her vocals make her an upcoming artist to be reckoned with!
After gaining the attention of many music insiders, DeStefano has had the opportunity to record with iconic producer Jimmy Messer, bringing us three lyric-driven indie/pop-rock tracks. The resulting songs, 'Change the Theme,' 'New Year's Eve,' and 'Naperville,' will leave you wanting more. The lyrics are honest and highly relatable.
