Thou and City of Caterpillar (All Ages)
Within a genre that prides itself on theatricality, Thous lack of pretension and their commitment to the DIY world from where they came is refreshing. The band refuses to hide behind elaborate stage shows or tour laminates, releases boatloads of new material every year, and still prefers to pile into their beat-up red van and play all-ages DIY spaces. They hail from Baton Rouge, Louisiana, but could seemingly care less about fulfilling anyone elses Southern sludge stereotypes. Basically, Thou have always been Thou, and their stellar new album, Heathen is a portrait of a band that is in complete harmony with itself, if not the world it inhabits.
City of Caterpillar
City of Caterpillar have been touring like crazy leaving many wondering, "where the fuck did these guys come from?" Sure the members play or have played in a number of well known and seminal bands, but listing them is redundant as City of Caterpillar have come into their own without riding on the coattails of previous projects. It's obvious they're not new to writing and playing as their live shows and recordings are consistently too strong to simply be attributed to an accident or luck. This is the record that will make even the most jaded hipster take notice and start listening to hardocre again (whether we want them to our not)
