0 Comments · Wednesday, October 2, 2013
 We here at CityBeat and others associated with the fest did a lot of campaigning to get people into the smaller venues to check out some of the lesser-known acts and MPMF-goers did better than in any previous year showing love for artists who had yet to infiltrate their personal music collections

 MDR is the project of Cincinnati’s Brian Penick, a former drummer for several touring/recording bands like The Seedy Seeds and Bottom Line, who stopped playing music to start the development/marketing/events promo company The Counter Rhythm Group.

 It’s often hard to discern what the hell frontman Alex Edkins is raging on about, but it doesn’t matter much when your frontal lobe is blown off via the trio’s lacerating racket, which sounds like In Utero-era Nirvana on fast-forward or Fugazi at its immersive, air-raid-siren best.

 Warpaint emits a hypnotic, groove-based blend of textures and emotions that could only have sprouted from the fertile imaginations of its four members. There’s a mysterious, unpredictable element to the band’s lush vocals and mood-altering soundscapes that is all its own.   

The Teeth and Nothing But the Teeth

The Kickaways sport a stripped-back and mature sound on sophomore full-length 'Show Yr Teeth'

At the same time, the band has tweaked its approach, as Lynn set aside his guitar to concentrate on his frontman skills at the mic. This has allowed Glistovski to take up the guitar slack and become more inventive, which has subsequently tightened up the Ittle/Lambchop rhythm section.
