GANSER: Just Look at That Sky: LP

When I think of noise rock, I think of turgid, edgelord-ish, shirts off/dudes on rawk with the occasional groove. It’s rad to hear the churning grooves brought to the forefront by the women in this Chicago band. This LP moves, adding post-punky pounding, bleeding-sharp guitar leads and laconic Kim Gordon-esque vocals to the template. The results are fresh and fun, in the way that a doomed-ass summer still has its moments of sunshine. –Chris Terry (
