Bear Claw - This two-bass Chicago trio raise the spectre of mid-90s Touch & Go guitar noise. Since 2002, Bear Claw has released three records on Sick Room (all recorded by Steve Albini) and toured Europe twice. http://bearclaw.bandcamp.com
Self-Evident - The Minneapolis band is often compared to the likes of Fugazi, Rush, and Milk. Fine company, to be sure, but they demonstrate an intimacy and economy in their writing that their vaulted peers often lack. Since 1997, Self-Evident has released nine records and toured both Europe and Japan multiple times. http://self-evident.net
Tyranny Is Tyranny - If Howard Zinn fronted a post-metal rock band, his music might something like this. Ex-United Sons of Toil. http://tyrannyistyranny.com
Got a gig coming up? A CD coming out? A new bass player who looks like Jesus and smells like a field of posies? If you're selling or promoting something, post it here.

Hey folks. Bear Claw is playing the Shellac-curated Nightmare Before Christmas ATP in London. So catch them in Madison first.
"Chicago post-punk trio Bear Claw (Nov. 2, Frequency) boasts two bass guitars but doesn't use them to simply double up on harsh low end. Their 2007 album Slow Speed: Deep Owls opened with an instrumental of the same title, with the two basses rippling over each other in warm chords and flickering melodies. Their most recent, 2010's Refuse This Gift, finds them in a Shellac-inspired lurch that leaves enough room for tuneful nuances. Appropriately, it's the third album Shellac's Steve Albini has recorded for the band."
