Additional Information


Stagnant Pools are Bryan and Douglass Enas, two brothers (21 and 22) from Bloomington, Indiana. With just one guitar and a drum kit, they make music which the Chicago Reader described as "Drone-heavy, slate-gray art-rock that should appeal to fans of Disappears, Joy Division, and Sonic Youth records from back when they were still actually scary." 


The duo is led by the vocals/guitar/keys of Laura Mariposa, joined by the atmospheric lap-steel/guitar and percussion of Eric Bessel. Driving, melodic, and tenderly haunting— the songs of Lore City conjure the apocalypse of modern times, through rose-colored neo-romantic glasses. Female vocals swoop from ethereal highs to guttural, baritone lows. String synthesizer, glistening piano, or a jangly lo-fi guitar sets the tone. A lap-steel roars and wanes through a drone-like fog of reverb and delay. Meanwhile, relentless, electronic percussion drives the listener further into an intense minimalist rock universe. Truly a progressive band with a myriad of influences.


RFUP is a baked barn burrito with fuzzy amplifier sauce, wrapped around the most deliciously infused guitar and drum combo. Join us for a drum and coke.
