Recording: Is/Is

Artist: Is/Is

Song: unknown*

Recorded at The Piston, October 20, 2013.

Is/Is - unknown

Full review to follow. Beliefs' homecoming show could have been a bit of a bummer, what with the band having had some gear ripped off in the UK. Putting merch on sale to raise some funds and getting a room of friends together made it feel more celebratory, and with borrowed and patched-together equipment and some warping projected visuals they showed off their road-quickened arrangements.

But the real surprise of the night, sounding great is The Piston's back room, came from Minneapolis trio Is/Is, who I knew nothing about coming in. Their dreamy/woozy grunge proved to be right down my alley. Vocalist Sarah Rose brought a walloping wall of crunchy guitar, but bassist Sarah Nienaber's melodic lines were what really sealed the deal.

* Does anyone know the title to this one? Please leave a comment!
