Since their blown-out 2011 debut Hollandaze, Toronto trio Odonis Odonis has continued to push their sound further into the depths of post-apocalyptic experimentation. Following 2016's foreboding Post Plague, No Pop is the band's starker, more dance-floor-friendly fourth LP.
Executed with precision, every sonic component of No Pop commands attention. Stripping down instrumentation to a handful of synths and an electronic drum kit, the band worked quickly to write and record, bringing demos and improvised takes into the studio and completing the recording process over the course of three days. The result is a focused blend of hard-hitting industrial, techno, and noise – but each track on No Pop is never just one of those elements. Pulsing rhythms lay the ground for textural soundscapes masterfully woven together to create a palpable sense of doom that is thick and satisfying.
Taking its name from the anti-commercial No Pop movement, which infers that there "is no expiration date on music nor is it limited by geographic or regional boundaries," No Pop is raw with emotion that's elevated by deft production. Each hypnotizing meditation captures an uncomfortably honest cynicism with a brush of humor, emphasized by sparse vocals that taunt the current dystopia of technology, human emptiness and the mundane. No Pop is the soundtrack of a sinking ship, and we're all happily aboard to go down with it.
Burnin Loins is a Cleveland, Ohio based rock band comprised of guitarist Nikhil Chand, bassist Justin Husher, and drummer Brent Gemmill. The band formed in 2013, and continues to develop their hard-driving brand of rock music. They often identify their style as “Pothole Rock”, creating blistering sound and performances that embrace and complement Northeast Ohio’s cold winters, gray skies, crumbling alleyways, and of course, walleye.
“You can expect plenty of blues, rock and roll and rowdiness from Burnin’ [sic] Loins. This Cleveland-to-the-core three-piece is full of dirty, frenetic punk.” – Cleveland.com, 9/6/2017.
A spinoff of the Cleveland Lottery League, Burnin Loins’ success is largely due to the disparate musical stylings of its members. As a group, they have carved a path forward via its members being forced to explore songwriting far outside of their individual comfort zones. As a result, the band’s sound can be described as a refreshingly unidentifiable mix of rock, punk, metal, and blues. Their self-titled, independently produced debut album was released in July, 2017. They continue to perform regionally throughout Northeast Ohio, showcasing at rock music clubs, music festivals, and on college radio.
