ASSS, Animal Bodies, Weird Candle and Bloom Offering


Beacon Sound North
Sat., Nov. 22, 8 p.m. 2014 All Ages


Vancouver, NC's Animal Bodies really know how to push people's buttons. Their music gets in on the ground floor of the subconscious, causing a visceral response, with driving post-punk done on machines—a genre they refer to as "hard beat" (it's an industrial fan's dream come true). Haunting soundscapes and dissonant lead guitar give way to the best elements of gothic minimalism, with an exquisitely tortured voice hissing over the top. I was blown away by their 2012 album Kiss of the Fang and couldn't wait for more from this deliciously dark duo. Now they're touring in support of their latest release, The Killing Scene, so here's your chance to visit the hard beat gods of darkness. CHRISTINA BROUSSARD
