The Chicago band is set to release Bummer Palace (Trust Tapes) on May 25, their debut album (from what I gather).
here's the little bit I know about the band:
CAW! CAW! are four friends from a nerdy high school on the north side of Chicago, and nearly a decade of playing together in attics, basements and weird spots all over the country has honed their sound like water over rock.
Booking their own way through months of touring since the release of 2008’s Wait Outside EP, the boys have had ample time to hammer out their musical differences and have finally found a sweet and uncommon sense of unity, striking a delicate balance between saccharine harmonies and lacerating screams, tangles of crusty noise and sun-soaked melodies.
Their forthcoming debut LP, Bummer Palace, was recorded in the heart of June in Los Angeles and mixed seven months later in the depths of a Chicago winter. It’s a shimmering and sweaty record that tosses and turns between propulsive, shivering grooves, hailstorms of impudent guitar orchestration and viscous, cinematic dream sequences; all guided by the crystalline voice of a frightened boy, shouting his hopeless tale of disillusionment and despair at a world of cold shoulders.
and if you want a quick listen, I've got "Toothless" for you below.
