iTunes Review

The second release by Chicago’s Disappears shows the band moving in the direction of Moon Duo or Wooden Shjips, with huge, hypnotic grooves that cycle and chug and hypnotize. The quartet manages to make repetition exciting, with a voracious appetite for rippling wreathes of fuzzy, crunchy guitars that sputter and churn, and Spartan floor tom pounding that drives a person to whiplash. It’s a good thing “Superstition” isn’t the 15-minute opus that “Revisiting” is, as it could cause serious injury. “Halo,” however, treads near that danger zone with nearly four minutes of relentless, driving guitar attack, kept tethered to terra firma with concrete-bottomed bass lines. You might think that whatever Brian Case is singing (well, shouting) about must be really important, but since deciphering actual lyrics is a challenge, we won’t pretend to know. Any fan of Spaceman 3, Can, or the bands mentioned earlier will happily hitch a ride in Disappears’ vortex of whooshing tremolo washes and throbbing rhythms.

The other five songs are pretty compact and come at you fast. Guider has a steady beat that sets up the album nicely. Halo has some drum action that can't be missed and my fav song Superstition basically wraps up Guider with a short powerful jolt.

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Carving out a space somewhere in the middle of garage punk snarl, shoegaze haze, and Krautrock grooves, Chicago's Disappears feature Brian Case (also of the Ponys and 90 Day Men), Boas members Graeme Gibson and Jonathan van Herik, and Damon Carruesco. The band started when Case's other groups were on hiatus and he was recording demos with Gibson; Gibson brought van Herik into the project, and in turn, van Herik brought Carruesco into the fold. Soon after forming, the band self-released a series of...
