Purling Hiss’ Mike Polizze has put in much time in the fried Philly blooze overdrive of the group Birds of Maya, but in his own vehicle he’s expanded his grotty guitar wailing into the further cosmos, still shredding speakers aplenty. With releases out on Drag City, Richie, Woodsist Records, and a previous LP on Permanent, Purling Hiss became a full-fledged touring unit in 2010, revealing themselves to not only be purveyors of Rallizes Denudes/Vermonster-style guitar jams, but to have a serious 90’s grunge/pop ethic not too far removed from bits of Bleach-era Nirvana. Lots of ooh-oohs to coincide with the growls, severe hooks to get lodged in your cranium.

/// MEATBODIES (mem of Fuzz//Mikal Cronin)

Chad Ubovich began ripping through the rock scene in 2011 as guitaristfor Mikal Cronin and, eventually, bassist in FUZZ. In between tours,he spent his time recording and playing shows around Los Angeles underthe name Chad and the Meatbodies. In 2012, Ty Segall released some ofChad’s bedroom recordings via cassette tape on his GOD? Recordsimprint. The tape was well received and people began to see Chad wasmore than just a sideman to his heavy hitting comrades. In 2013, InThe Red took notice of Chad’s crunching, grinding sound and added hisband, now simply called Meatbodies to their roster.

For the first Meatbodies LP, titled Meatbodies, Chad chose to recordin San Francisco, utilizing the foggy, psychedelic atmosphere providedby it’s surroundings, as well as the powers of master studio magicianEric “King Riff” Bauer. Chad busted out an album’s worth of songs,barely leaving the Technicolor underground quarters of Bauer’s trippysanctuary. Chris Woodhouse took on the mixing, giving the songs finaltouches of controlled chaos. The end result is a sonic experience thatis truly evocative of its auteur. Unabashed, unrestrained, beautifuland strange. Meatbodies are going to dominate your eyes and ears andgive you a bang over like you’ve never had before.
