Japanther+Cerebral Ballzy

Ian Vanek and Matt Reilly make a hell of a lot of noise for two people: With a sampler/drum machine, pounding drums, fuzzed-out bass, and barked-in-unison choruses, they achieve the volume, density, and perspiration of noise rock bands like Lightning Bolt while adding their own spin with telephone receiver microphones and hip-hop’s sensitivity to tempo. Call it hardcore, call it lo-fi, call it crust punk, but don’t call Japanther just another Brooklyn band. They’ve got a whole lot more going on behind all the clamor.
