Faking
Faking
Ruthless and machine stamped from the same kind of sonic foundry that used to produce menacing flyover state noise rock. An alloy of the rudest abrasive mathy angularity found in the nineties Amrep and Touch & Go camps, harkening back to an era of uncorrupted sonic battery. And Faking does it without the self-conscious sneer of retro-scene boot-licking – these men know the world of which they speak, this trio having been assembled out of the wreckage of seminal PA noise rock bands Gunna Vahm and Midiron Blast Shaft (both Reptilian alums).

The crunchy buzz saw riffs hammer down with calculated repetition and bleed into reverb drenched seasick leads. The vocals invoke threat, like a crime scene report read aloud long after an urgent warning wasn't received. Thunderous rolling bass. Truly massive drums. The right kind of nastiness for the wrong kind of people. Full length album due in 2015.
Tiny Vices
Somewhere between the chaotic swagger of 70s punk and the raw emotion of 90s grunge live Philadelphia's Tiny Vices. After a nearly 10 year hiatus, the boys from post punk outfit Aim of Conrad and Halo of Snakes are back with an ice cream cone in one hand and a cigarette in the other.
You want nartsy riffs? You got nartsy riffs. You want to shake your hips? Shake what your mama gave you. You want to bang your head like a drunk gorilla? Tiny Vices sure ain't gunna stop you. Now stop reading this bio and go be the person you were meant to be.
