OVEF OW is a 4-piece rock band that formed in the spring of 2015. The band's lineup features Marites Velasquez (bass), Sarah Braunstein (drums), Kyla Denham (synth) and Nick Barnett (guitar). Over the past year, the quartet has quickly built a following in the Chicago indie-music scene around their surf and garage/punk-inspired and multi-vocalist sound. They draw influences from Sonic Youth, Sleater-Kinney, and the B-52s.
Kodakrome is an electro-punk band from Chicago. Combined with layers of synth hooks and driving guitar lines, our music is punchy, energetic, and visceral.
It all started in 1743, when the Colonel took off to sea on the 80 gun ship, "The Tonnant". Just before it was destroyed in 1780, the unexpected happened. Jim and Don were cruising around in Zenith Tower, and noticed a horse hovering in the air. As we mounted the horse it was soon realized, there was a time-traveling jetpack attached to his back. It all happened so fast, but very slow for some, and others enjoyed carrots. As we hit the launch button on the jetpack, the horse screamed through the air, and we ended up on "The Tonnant" in 1780. The Colonel quickly jumped on, and we set to the air once more, watching the ship sink behind us. He thanked us, and asked how we found his horse. Soon after, there was a major funk in the propulsion system, and we ended up landing in Acid Face Jungle, and stuck in the year 2007. That's where this story all begins. Ten days had past, five had not, and Tom and Phil recovered our time traveling jetpack horse, which was unrepairable, and brought us to their not so secret Castle of Indifference. There the Colonel tested his first potion,which turned us into the greatest band the world has never seen, but subsequently changed him into Colonel Chloroform. The Colonel continually works on reversing the course of events that led him here, but knows...time may be running out...literally, because the Colonel's horse is very hungry, and only knows how to eat time. There is a potion however, that will mend the rift. The Colonel tirelessly works on this, and we are able to stretch time for him by creating new music.
The post-doom duo Ghost Ape weds sludge and stoner doom guitar fuzz with chopped-and-screwed drum beats, all in a grimy, slow-and-low fog that will please fans of Earth, Sleep, Sunn 0))) and Schoolly D. Guitarist J Mlodzinski is a veteran of numerous Chicago bands (Imperial Battlesnake, American Musk Ox) and bassist Andy Freivogel is an afro-cuban priest and amateur birdwatcher.
