If Phish had been wordlessly inspired by Mama Africa, rural Mississippi, Haight Ashbury and Malibu pier parties and jammed with passion, precision, wild abandon and a sense of the music’s heritage, they might have come close to the ethereal delight of Toubab Krewe.

Squeeze the Day for 9/15

Music Tonight: A solid (and free!) Indie Rock double-bill at MOTR Pub tonight features two quality bands with a healthy dose of ’90s Indie influences evident — Athens, Ga.'s Witches and Florida's Holopaw. Witches' dirty but warm sound (which reminds me a little of Cincy heroes Wussy) is on glorious display on the band's 2011 debut full-length, Forever. Check out the track "Creatures of Nature" by clicking the arrow above. Holopaw put out its self-titled debut on SubPop in 2003 following the release of Ugly Casanova's Sharpen Your Teeth, which was co-written/performed by Modest Mouse's  Isaac Brock and Holopaw's John Orth. Holopaw, which mixes progressive experimentalism and captivating Art Pop, now records for Bakery Outlet Records (their most recent full-length was 2009's Oh Glory Oh Wilderness), also home to Witches' debut.  Below, check out the official video for the Holopaw track "Curious," from its 2005 SubPop swan song, Quit +/or Fight.
