Guerilla Toss ready first LP for DFA (listen to “Diamond Girls”), playing Market Hotel’s opening weekend & other shows
by Bill Pearis
Guerilla Toss will release their first album for DFA, titled Eraser Stargazer, on March 4. The band have just shared the album's first single, "Diamond Girls," which is Guerilla Toss in a nutshell: calamitous percussion, rubbery bass, noises from all directions, and the attitude-heavy vocals of Kassie Carlson. If you're into postpunk like Bow Wow Wow, The Slits and Pigbag (and even some of the earliest DFA singles) you should give this a spin. Listen below.
Folks in NYC have a few chances to catch Guerilla Toss' crazed live show, including twice this weekend: tonight (1/15) at Aviv with Providence, RI punk marching band What Cheer? Brigade, as well as Evolfo and Naked Naps (more info); and Saturday (1/16) at Shea Stadium with Wume, Zula, Erica Eso, and Melodia (more info). They'll also play the second of Market Hotel's opening weekend parties on January 23 with PC Worship, Pill and "special guests tba."
