PRFBBQ Kickoff with

Chicago garage power trio Stomatopod kicked off 2022 with the release of their third LP, “Competing With Hindsight,” recorded and mixed by Steve Albini at Electrical Audio. The album’s six songs were written and rehearsed outdoors, fully masked, during a particularly brutal Chicago winter amid the COVID lockdown, and can’t help but reflect the times it was created in. 

Chicago rock, with a bit of roll, wrought up and forged by: Xtine Garcia, Ryan Farnham, and Neil Hoying. Prichard plays it whiskey soaked, and direct.

Hungry Man
Poorly described as sounding like Badfinger, Chicago’s Hungry Man is guitarist Jeff Fox (Glitter of Cohoes, 615s, Catacomb Gypsy Vagina, Clam of God, Empire State Troopers, Blank Banker, Acid Tit, Gay Name, Megamaul, Begin by Gathering Supplies, ExaTeks), singer and guitarist Jim Kamp (Buttslamarama, Dick Justice, Team Player, Snaklab All-Tsars, Ruth Buzzy, Blackout Dates, ExaTeks, The Jimi Kamp Experience), drummer Andy Kosinski (last ditch effort, tale of genji, s.t. monroe, sorns, grayson, ling ling, sacrafix, sirs, jackhammer hearts, denier), and bass player Neal Markowski (WNEK 45, Abandoned Hope, Shotgun Clash, Pilcher’s List, Canadian Pavers, Korean Jeans, Burn Permits, Blank Banker, Lars from Metallica, 50 Helens, Mars Hill, Retreaters, No Trust, Future Living, Daddy’s Boy, The Jimi Kamp Experience). They are ready for what’s to come.

For as much ice cream as sewingneedle’s three members eat, their music is none too sweet. Bristling with feedback and dissonance, the band’s style of post-hardcore grinds and sputters like a lawnmower’s first use in spring. Their latest LP, User Error — recorded at Electrical Audio with Greg Norman — recalls the unease of ’90s-era bands on Touch & Go and Jade Tree. This is feel good music for left-fielders.
