Brooklyn-based power trio Meowskers delivers hungry, ecstatic rock, touched with a heavenly glow. On their debut release, Fake Orange EP, the band combines the jagged darkness of early Black Sabbath with the holy drive of U2, smoothing it out with the sexy swagger of 80's synth pop. Since 2006 the band has been winning fans over solely with their live performances, sharing the stage with acts like the critically acclaimed O’Death and The Slip.
Big Bang TV
Big Bang TV is what happens when four people who can't agree on anything try to make music. Frantic, post-punk guitars stumble in and out of pools of Atari, synth and turntable chirps. Male/female vocals lazily dance around each other until they’re swept up by a driving break beat and booming bass. It’s music that is catchy and complex, intimate and epic - comforting yet slightly creepy.
With strong and inventive synthesizer lines, bold yet singable melodies, and an energized rhythm section that will cause you to jump out of your seat, Bearstronaut moves. With heavy play on 91.5 WUML, Bearstronaut has shared stages with acts including The Peasantry, Aderbat, The Motorcycle Industry, This is How Rumors Get Started, Beneath the Sheets, and Life on Hold.
