Venus Twins kick ass and take names on new EP, play Trans-Pecos 2.10

Kickass is perhaps the most apt name for Brooklyn-duo Venus Twins debut offering, a white knuckle punk drum and bass EP that thrills and chills over the course of five short tracks. Introductory “Addition” sets the tone for this release, wherein repetitive, sludgy bass licks and tightly wound drumming throw listeners into the pit, with later tracks “Meet is Murder” and “DOOM // CRUCIFY” introducing more melodic elements to the band's sound, the former indulging in occasional math-y rhythmic breakdowns and a joint vocal performance by bandmembers and brothers Jake and Matt Derting. Closer “Vile” is the EP’s most unhinged and industrial effort, filled with dooming breakdowns and screaming vox, showing that while minimalistic hardcore may be Venus Twins bread and butter, they’re not afraid to get really, really weird with it. Stream Kickass below, and catch the band at Trans-Pecos on February 10th. —Connor Beckett McInerney

02.24: SXSW-bound Kills Birds plays Gold Diggers

Kills Birds have a slate of shows coming up in the next few months, which means that more cities across these United States will have a chance to catch their wild live antics. They kick things off with a hometown gig at Gold Diggers on February 24th, and from there, they'll take their act on a wild ride up and down the West Coast. Once they've done that, they'll head down to Austin for SXSW, where they'll entertain the masses who have heard of them through big names such as Reggie Watts and Kim Gordon. Should you have that Monday night available -- or, even if you don't -- you should go throw yourself around the room to the fierce tracks that Kills Birds have to offer. The band released their debut album last year; for an idea of what you'll experience from their stage show, take a listen to "Volcano" below. - Will Sisskind

02.02: Slaughterhouse lead stacked Super Bowl bill at Moroccan Lounge

You may neither root for the 49ers or the Chiefs, and that's okay. Head down to the Moroccan Lounge while everyone else chokes down chicken wings and beer for a stacked indie bill with Slaughterhouse supporting Seattle's Monsterwatch. The group put out a couple of new singles back in November, and have remained active throughout the winter hitting the stage. The Moroccan Lounge show is their first of the month, and the period of increased performing points towards more to come in the spring and summer from the punk quarter. Take a listen to Slaughterhouse's cover of X's "Nausea", their latest single, and run to the Moroccan Lounge on February 2nd to hear them play live. - Will Sisskind
