Interview: Twin Peaks and Meatbodies dish the dirt ahead of Bottom of the Hill show

Twin Peaks and Meatbodies are both newcomers on the crowded scene of fuzzed-out retro/garage/psych rock bands, yet they've both managed to distinguish themselves, and you can see why this Saturday at Bottom of the Hill.

Meatbodies is brazenly loud, full of what one can only dub as psychedelic shredding. It’s no surprise either - Ubovich’s lesser-known projects include touring with Mikal Cronin, playing bass in Fuzz, and overall being fully embedded in the SF gone LA rock scene. Meatbodies is very much a familiar sound for any fan of Ty Segall, Fuzz, and Thee Oh Sees - heavy but upbeat even at its sludgiest. In a way, this [...]
