“If there was an indie-rock Jeopardy! category, the following would certainly be a question: “Who is the only musician to have played with Bob Mould, Robert Pollard, Superchunk, Britt Daniel, and Telekinesis – and served as the inspiration for Dave Grohl to devote his life to playing music?” If you answered Jason Narducy for $5,000, you’d probably win that episode. “Watching Jason was the first time I thought I could start my own band, and write my own kind of music,” Dave Grohl says. “Jason totally set my life in this new direction. It wasn’t a Jimmy Page or KISS poster I had – it was fuckin’ him!” Indeed, if indie rock has a Zelig, a Forrest Gump, it’s Narducy. “Jason's been doin' the rock since he was a snot-nosed little punk,” Robert Pollard notes. “And I can attest from his work with me on the road that he's got it down. And it's not going to stop anytime soon.” - http://www.splitsinglemusic.com/bio/
SOUL LOW [SWEET PEA EP RELEASE SHOW]
“After Soul Low came out of nowhere with its incredible debut, UNEASY (a debut that’s firmly a top 10 local album this decade) in the summer of 2013, the city that had just met the indie rock prodigies—who, at the time, had just one member of legal drinking age among their ranks—was left to wonder how they would follow up their impressive introduction. Instead of getting bogged down with expectations of echoing UNEASY, the members of Soul Low took an easy, carefree approach of doing whatever the hell they wanted, when and how they wanted to do it.” – Milwaukee Record
“11. Heavy Hand, Northwoods Knives
Heavy Hand’s Northwoods Knives, the follow-up to debut album Confusion Is Body Parts, can be succinctly summed up as “more of the same,” so long as emphasis is placed on the “more” part. Not only are there nine songs to the predecessor’s seven, but Northwoods Knives’ nine-pack of sub-three-minute songs shows a more developed and realized rendition of one of the city’s most abrasive-yet-affable acts. Between the catchy and crass “Milwaukee Cum Dumpster,” the comically absurd “Motherfucking Bobcat,” and absolutely radio-rotatable “I Freed All Four Wizards,” Heavy Hand uses the same Confusion Is Body Parts recipe that’s rich in ingredients like high-pitched yelps and unabashedly minimalistic post-hardcore that proved palatable before, but adds additional spices and slightly more appealing flavors to make Northwoods Knives turn out even more enjoyable.” – Milwaukee Record’s “25 Best Milwaukee Albums Of 2014”
