Eraserhead
Eraserhead
A few years ago, four boys with different haircuts and methods of self-expression but similar musical tastes and general outlooks on life found that placing their preferred instruments side by side and producing a big noise was more exciting and interesting than anything else they had thus far done with themselves, and the result was a new band called Eraserhead. In a large, unfinished basement in Aurora, Illinois Eraserhead set to work on developing their sound. What they came up with is hard to pin down, as cacophonous punk rock coalesced with the lilting melodies and harmonies of folk and pop, and blues walked on arm in arm with metal while grunge looked on smiling. After writing many songs and rehearsing them at a higher volume than was likely necessary, Alex Rosales (drums), Eric Renner (bass), Eddy Bartolotta (guitar), and Ben Rosales (vocals/guitar) decided it was time to engage in public performances where they throw themselves headlong and soul-first into their music in paroxyms of exuberant exposition. At the end of 2016 they released their long-awaited first EP ERASERHEAD, which showcases their sonic diversity through songs as musically multifarious as the infectious "Oh Violet" and the powerful "Drop in the Bucket." With an incredibly energetic live show and a batch of songs that nod reverently to the great hard rock of the past while pursuing surprising new original musical ideas into the future, Eraserhead is a band you do not want to miss.
Doomerang
Doomerang
Doomerang is an electronic rock band from Chicago, IL composed of members Daniel Robbins (vocals, guitar), Katie Kadan (synth, vocals), Katrina Zemrak (bass), and Kirby Baumann (drums).
For the past 5 years, singer-songwriter Daniel Robbins has been writing, recording and playing music in Chicago, both as a solo act and with bands (The Field Recorders, Katie Kadan), in addition to recording, producing and collaborating with other local artists. Doomerang began in January 2016 as a recording project for Robbins and over the first months of 2016, the songs that would comprise Doomerang's debut album were written, recording began, and the realization that these songs needed to be played live set in.
From personal, moving songwriting, to teaching music lessons, to passionate live performance, music is native Chicagoan Katie Kadan's life. And as a constant collaborator with Robbins (both on the stage and in the studio), with one of the best voices in Chicago, Katie joining Doomerang seemed to be a given. And so she did in June 2016.
Katrina Zemrak, originally from Winslow, Maine, has been playing the bass for over 10 years in varying genres, including rock, musicals, jazz, and classical. But Katrina's passion for music extends beyond the bass and for the past 5 years she has been focusing on creating music for film and other forms of media and is currently studying at Columbia College. One serendipitous shared cab ride and a few text messages later and Doomerang had a bass player.
The last piece of the puzzle was Doomerang drummer, Kirby Baumann. Originally from Texas, Kirby is a visual artist, chef and self-taught drummer who has gone from beginning to drum at the age of 5 to opening for The Roots in 2009. Kirby's style and influence ranges from rock and roll, to blues, to hip-hop and after answering a Craigslist add in July 2016, Doomerang was complete.
Doomerang's self-titled debut album, recorded and produced by Daniel Robbins at Fort Knox Studios (Chicago), is out now on iTunes and streaming on Spotify.
