Here’s a nice little surprise that popped up in the inbox recently. The band is local to these parts. They are Nonagon from Chicago, IL. They have a nifty little EP released a short time ago called People Live Everywhere. The album has that nice Midwest flavor to it. It’s pretty symbolic of a lot of independent music that comes out of Chicago. It’s hard rock with lots of punk influence. I do hear a bit of a Primus influence in there, I’m not quite sure why though. It’s not a Primus sounding album though so don’t get your hopes up. One other thing I like about this EP is that it’s consistent. The sound is consistent from song to song. It’s not that each song sounds the same, they don’t, they just have a cool style and sound that they stick to (more…)
Interesting. I haven’t heard of these guys until recently. Their music is certainly different but yet familiar at the same time. Good stuff.
