LOW DOSE

Built from the ashes of a marriage gone sour, Philadelphia's LOW DOSE formed as an exercise in catharsis. Featuring the final lineup of cult noise-rock workhorses Fight Amp with the addition of vocalist Itarya Rosenberg of the late Legendary Divorce, LOW DOSE play heavy, grunge-tinged punk that is as visceral as it is infectious. Across their 35 minute, self-titled debut LP, the quartet bleed out ten emotionally fierce tracks, which deliver a loud/quiet/loud canvas for Rosenberg’s lyrics to lay bare the heartbreak and raw nerves of a broken relationship amidst rumbling bass, screeching guitar tones and dynamic drums that together signal the end of the world. LOW DOSE will surely hit all the right notes for those who enjoy the more melodic side of noise rock —especially fans of Metz, Slint and early PJ Harvey.

FIGHT AMP

FIGHT AMPUTATION was a heavy, grungy, hardcore punk crossed with sludgerock trio from the seedy underbelly of Philadelphia's noise rock scene active '04 - '16.
Drawing influence from Dead Kennedys, Cherubs, all things AmRep, His Hero Is Gone, Eyehategod, skateboarding, and foreclosed suburban ghost towns, FIGHT AMP crafted a sound similar to early Melvins filtered through Queens of the Stone Age.

GUNNA VAHM

Gunna Vahm, like its parent outfit, Midiron Blast Shaft, boastED a concussive rhythm section bearing down with subharmonic tones, a down-tuned distillation of dirty metal and sludgy punk riffing, contorted David Yow-like vocals, and a frightening strangeness at the core of each song.
