outta the ashes of BRAIN IDEA has risen the newest must hear band from the chicago scene, OUTSIDE WORLD..... who play a scuzzed-up jangle-popped indie rock that'll get you humming almost instantaneously...... NIGHT PEOPLE has just released OUTSIDE WORLD's second tape, SEASIDE NOWHERE, and man oh man does yr boombox need this ep now......
i haven't heard a noisy infectious indie rock killers like this in quite some time..... indebted to kiwi pop, 80s college jangle and 90s slacker rock, this tape just won't leave my stereo..... and i expect nothing but good things from OUTSIDE WORLD down the road....so totally crossing my fingers for a proper debut long player sometime this year.....
if you could take husker du, the clean, sebadoh, pavement, soft boys, gbv, the bats and superchunk and smash them into one band, you'd get OUTSIDE WORLD....... fuzzed up basement indie rock jams like the old days before the arcade fire's of the world made "indie" go mainstream, soundtrack car commercials and bore you to death..... (sorry but that's my feeling about most indie rock bands these days.....)
recommended for those into fresh and onlys, boomgates, woods, the bitters, heavy times, kurt vile, sic alps, the mantles and radar eyes......ie, anyone who needs a dose of unbridled lo-fi anthemic rock n roll in their lives....
grab this tape from NIGHT PEOPLE now.....
it's super limited..... and won't be available for very long........
