Wednesday, May 25, 2011

Cafe Nine
250 State Street
New Haven, CT

9:00pm - 21+ - $5

Did not know shit about The Whines before this show came up. Blown out rock and roll you blast from your AM radio as you drive as fast and as far away as possible in your rusted out beater from problems not worth solving. Hey, Besty Coasty, choke on your own faux-fi vomit. The Whines are the lovely truth behind low fidelity. Eat Skull as well as Kyle from Meth Teeth helped record their debut Hell To Play. They also have a 7" out on Mt St Mtn Records.

The always haunting and humble Medication opens. Sacred Bones have a solid bio on Medication: Mike Hyde has been cultivating private press style recordings since high school, and for the past few years under the handle Medication. What initially was a private endeavor went public in 2007 when a friend of his in Germany asked that he write music for a short film he was working on. At that point he started a myspace page as a means to play the producer works he had come up with for the project - mostly instrumentals and tape loops - but it quickly became more of a forum to post the other, more personal songs as well. The Medication recordings have all been a solo affair except for a side on a four tape comp, Judges Cave: The Hidden Sounds of New Haven, that came out in early 2010. The live band features Stefan Christensen who’s been in a bunch of Connecticut bands, most notably Estrogen Highs, and another a good friend of Hyde’s, Jon Vanduzee. In 2009 Medication released his debut full length on Hozac and then went on to tour in this incarnation of the band opening for The Dutchess and the Duke in early 2010. This new EP has songs Hyde has been working on for the last two years. They were all recorded on cassette four track (read: tape, not Logic) in his apartment in New Milford, CT.
