Kindest Lines

One of the bands I'm personally excited to see at the Northside Festival this week is New Orleans trio Kindest Lines who will play the Wierd Records showcase Thursday night (6/16) at Public Assembly with Xeno & Oaklander, Lauren Halo and a whole bunch of DJs. Kindest Lines will also play tonight's edition (6/15) of Weird's weekly party at Home Sweet Home. They have no other dates at the moment,

While Kindest Lines certainly appeal to Wierd's black-clad demographic, I think the band's debut, Covered in Dust, could be the label's breakout hit. There's your requesite minor key synth rock, but Kindest Lines also allow more than a few rays of sunshine inbetween the clouds. They've also studied up on how to meld vintage synths with guitars -- New Order's 1984 classic Low Life is an obvious touchstone here. It's a solid record.

Check out single "Destructive Paths to Live Happily" at the top of the post. The video for it is below.

Carlos Giffoni and Rene Hell are playing that Northside show as well. A bit of a step up from "DJs"

No "vintage synths" in sight/earshot here...

This is not a "Wierd Records showcase". There's a lot more going on than just that. Rene fucking Hell for one. And Silent Servant and Peter Van Hoesen are two of of the best techno producers/DJs in the world and will be playing EBM/synth/industrial stuff primarily.
