KATHERINE: Katherine: CS

Katherine is a drum and bass two-piece band formerly of Columbus, OH peopled by one Catherine and one Kathryn. Their self-titled cassette covers a lot of ground, from short, thrashy songs about consent to slowed-down, melodic pieces replete with “ooh-oohs.” I was thinking that a cassette from a two-piece would sound necessarily spare or something, but I find I don’t miss the guitar at all. I like people who aren’t dudes shredding, screaming, and cooing about real shit like picking scabs, street harassment, being a deadbeat. It’s a soundtrack for generalized disgust, and it sounds sick in the fullest sense of that word.
