Show Preview - Dead Rider - 3.26 - Brillobox - Concert Preview
Drag City label artist Dead Rider will be making an appearance next Wednesday, 3.26 at the Brillobox. The Chicago quartet are releasing their new LP Chills on Glass this month. The third album shows the band at their best playing their heavy driven sound. The album was self recorded and produced by the band creating their own unique LP. Trying to define the music is difficult as they run the gambit of electro, jazz and rock and roll.
From their press:
The record, which arrives March 18, brings guitarist/vocalist Todd Rittman back to the Drag City stable, having previously issued LPs on the label with fabled post-rock trailblazers U.S. Maple. As for Dead Rider, the group's self-produced follow-up to 2011's The Raw Dents has the act "reconfiguring sonic relationships," according to a press release.Elements of improvisation are said to pepper the set, which finds the quartet using trombones, trumpets, guitars, bass, drums and more to offer up 10 new tracks that play out "metallically, hip-hoptically, free and jazzy, operatic [and] electronic."
Show begins at 9:30p with doors at 9p. More information can be found here.
