Band We Like

The Narrator play too darn loud.

November 9, 2005
Infectious Chicagoans The Narrator play manic, Dischord-inspired post-rock punk that sounds like Trail of Dead meets Unwound meets Detachment Kit. They mix chaotic machine-gun outbursts with introspective arrangements, often abruptly and in mid-song, to create a stop-start whiplash of tracks that could best be described as "tumultuous anthems."

Nothing in The Narrator's repertoire is particularly original, but what is? They take the best elements of those old mid-90's Chicago bands (think angular) and inject it with their own brand of attacking fury. And they play loud. One of our very favorite bands at this year's CMJ in NYC for SURE.

The Narrator play Empty Bottle, Monday, November 14th.
