I love love LOOOVE this band. They are EVERYTHING I liked and loved about the music I grew up with in the 90's. A whole lotta Kurt(Cobain) and Kevin(Shields) with all the best parts of Smashing Pumpkins melody and riffs sprinkled in. BUT what makes Creepoid the best and most exciting band on the road today is this undefinable element they conjure. The songs almost force you to close your eyes and take a journey. Opening doors and climbing stairs in your mind. So visual without being totally overt. They give you the paint and canvas and enable your mind to create the art. Go as fast as your fingers can go and buy the self titled album they put out before this. It changed my outlook on music. Sorta like the first time I stood up after hearing Loveless for the first time. They also have a 7 inch split with Shores that is great and the "Yellow Life Giver" 7 inch is killer as well. AND do not forget "Wet" their first of 3 experimental EPs to come. It is always in rotation on my turntable. Oh yeah I forgot to mention that all mentioned are available on vinyl and you should support them by buying them ASAP!! I love this band so much!!
This band is going to be massive, and for good reason
This ablum is just one powerful, soaring, heavy and utterly transporting song after another, absolutely mindblowing. Creepoid have emerged confidently asserting themselves as important a band as any great indie/alternative band out there...just listen to the aggressively addictive Nirvana-esque singles (American Smiile, Dried Out, Devil In The Subtext, Tell The Man) interspersed with the stunning, hazy, mesmerizing slow burning monster tracks (Seams, Shaking, Worthless & Pure, Here) and I dare you to think otherwise. A masterpiece for any music fan who appreciates the hey days of Sub Pop, Banquet, Rough Trade and 4AD in equal measure.
OH MY GOOOOOOISH
this band is the new nirvana 😏
Philadelphia-based indie rockers Creepoid were formed in 2010 by singer/guitarist Sean Miller, singer/bassist Anna Troxell, and drummer Patrick Troxell. A mix of shoegaze and melodic noise pop with a distinctly grungy texture, they self-released their debut EP, Yellow Life Giver, in 2010 followed a year later by their first full-length, Horse Heaven. Elements of noisy, Sonic Youth-inspired rock, Brit-pop, and various other influences could be heard in their music debut, and before long they had signed to No Idea Records to release their self-titled follow-up in March 2014. The Wet EP arrived just one month later, and band continued to make waves, sharing bills with bands like Dinosaur Jr., Swervedriver, A Place to Bury Strangers, and Against Me!. In early 2015, Creepoid signed with Collect Records to deliver their third LP, Cemetery Highrise Slum, which arrived later that summer. ~ Timothy Monger
