Louisville trio White Reaper not only just signed to local label Polyvinyl, they’ve also booked a show a little later this month at Thee Parkside alongside Young Widows (who is headlining) and Life Coach.
The White Reaper brand of lo-fi punk is disorderly, fast, and duly headlong. That much is reflected in their new self-titled EP, a turbulent 17-minute squall of fuzzy voices, psychedelic riffs, and coarse drums.
Young Widows, meanwhile, are their own force; the post-punk outfit is even more destructively-minded than their fellow Louisville-based band White Reaper. Remember to hold on to your head and dress light—you can bet you’re going to leave sweaty.
