Daughters, Jaye Jayle, Ganser
Daughters is vocalist Alexis Marshall, guitar player Nick Sadler, drummer Jon Syverson and bass player Sam Walker. Following the release of their 2010 self-titled album, the band took an indefinite hiatus, returning in 2013 for a pair of sold out hometown shows in Providence, and a subsequent smattering of live dates in the intervening years, including joining Dillinger Escape Plan for their final live outings in December of 2017. Daughters have been hailed for their visceral performances, both live and on record, with Pitchfork describing them as “manic” and “pummeling” and Punk News pointing to their “frantic energy” and “spastic urgency.”
“What a time to be alive.” ESP. Dyslexia. Moments of gesture. Should I? And Why? Morse Code. Body language. Dropped calls.
Chicago quartet Ganser was formed in 2014, embracing college art rock, post-punk, and noise. Taking influence from the no wave din of acts like Sonic Youth and contemplative post-punk like Magazine, they dive deep into where words fail on their debut LP Odd Talk following 2016’s This Feels like Living. Their amorphous sound takes on the form of their comedically grim, absurdist subject matter.
Seeking meaning in mess, they sort through syllables and signals to find the right words. When's the last time you called your mother?
Ganser is Alicia Gaines, Brian Cundiff, Nadia Garofalo, and Charlie Landsman.
