SikSik Nation portrays a blue collar solemnity mixed with Brit-pop sensibility and heavy feedback. Many of their songs are socially conscious but avoid coming across as preachy. Self-described "beer fueled rock'n'roll"—I think we know how to deal with that!
Thunders is here from Indianapolis with great songs, musicianship and outstanding stage presence. The group combines garage-rock punch and power with the more wistful and feedback-laden elements of late 80s/early 90s combos like The Jesus and Mary Chain.
Of Wicked Hemlocks, NPR says: "[They] experiment wildly with a number of sounds, from funk to chaotic, noisy rock. On their latest CD — the appropriately-titled Quill of the Mad — the group uses heavy effects to bend and warp songs into '60s-flavored psychedelia, similar Syd Barrett-era Pink Floyd or the Silver Apples."
Detroit's Qualia operates in the same vein; psychedelic out there space out freak out turn on drop out-- featuring former members of Friends of Dennis Wilson and Ghostcity.
