New World Ancients
New World Ancients
Imagine the soundtrack for a film noir version of a Greek tragedy set in the future, and you might be close to The New World Ancients' sound. It's progressive rock meets art rock meets psych rock meets new wave, et cetera. The music is agreeably contradictory: both punishing and subtle, aggressive yet sensual, heightened though approachable; it's artsy rock and roll that will horrify and delight you. Each show is a grand affair, and they employ their theatricality to the fullest in the live setting. You've never heard anything quite like these guys, but you'll be glad you did. They've been getting a lot of attention with press and radio with their recently released leviathan of an album, Temporal Beast. Shawn Kellner of Chicago Music Magazine says, "They are by far the most original local band that has come across my desk in 2012 and Temporal Beast is the best local debut album I have come across in 2012. After listening to this album, I am a hands down a fan and supporter of this band for life."

SHAPERS
SHAPERS
"A Chicago 4-piece with a hazy, amorphous, art-rock sound—these guys have been invigorating and confusing listeners for about a year now—and I just can't get enough."
