I haven't felt this way about a band on hearing them the first time since Deerhunter. Bottomless Pit is two of the guys from Silkworm, the drummer from Seam (another band I've been listening to a lot of recently) and the bassist from a band called .22. These are Chicago peeps. It all has that Electrical Audio sound to the drums and the tonefreaky purity of the guitar tones, along with that close vocal- loud, but butting right up against everything else in the mix vying for attention- the thing that Sea and Cake do so well. Sometimes I think that all I'm missing in music is '90s Chicago. You can stream their two albums and one EP from their site.
