Kazoo! #134 MARCH 14th: WILD DOMESTIC / HININDAR – Kazoo! fest launch party @ eBar
Join us as we launch our 2012 festival program guides and begin selling our Crony Pass (the all-access Kazoo! festival pass). Kazoo! fest happens April 11-15th 2012. The evening will feature performances by Hinindar (who played our breakfast show at last year’s festival) and the Guelph debut of Wild Domestic.
Eerie and chilling and at other times joyous and upbeat, Wild Domestic present a vast, yet mere shadow of what the band is when seen live on their self-titled debut. There is something about the dual drumming, three-part melodies, soaring guitars, and driving bass that takes you over. On stage everything is orchestrated with precision, yet there is also a strong animalistic quality that underlies the music. It is this incalculable factor, which the band has been crafting for over three years, that propels them forward. On their first recording mixed alongside Tim Glasgow (Sonic Youth, Metric), Wild Domestic exhibit an effortless ability to move back and forth between loud and subtle parts, relying just as heavily on the contrasts within their songs as they do their impressive cohesiveness. With commanding vocals or wordless stories, their sonically driven songs are equal parts loud and quiet, long yet deliberate, feverish then relaxed. The real beauty lies in trying to keep up with them in their musical landscape.
Hinindar was born out of the Trepid Arts Collective in Waterloo and now shares members between Kitchener and Guelph. The combined musical and psychological sensibilities of Steve Sloane, Jeff Woods, and Steph Yates, breathe life and death into the dark-folk style that they’ve come to embody and represent. After releasing countless digital downloads of home recordings for free over the last few years, Hinindar is set to release their first physical collection of bone chillers at the end of March 2012.
