Two more absolute destroyers from Chicago-based KEEFE, who I covered a few weeks ago. While festival season begins untempered and the latest COVID upswing continues, I can’t help but feel like these two tracks still manage to give a new–and less hopeless–meaning to the notion of ‘plague rave’. I like to imagine myself dancing to stuff like this post-apocalypse, complete with new masking styles à la 18th century plague doctors. If that’s humanity’s inevitable future, at least we’ll have music like this to meet the mood.
Both tracks out now for streaming, or as part of Execution Pt. 1 on bandcamp.
