Los Angeles dance-y noiserock GUIDES on second-half of winter tour

It's fitting that the trio GUIDES would buzz with visceral tone and asymmetric structure after spending their incubation period in recording studio comp'ny — womb to the sound babies of Nic Hessler, Ducktails, DRINKS, and more. The three have sculpted rock with defibrillating textures since 2012, into songs that exemplify the coastal resurgence of noise and agitas. Their fall EP "Abstract Mind" builds off 2013's self-titled 7", howling as it dances in pools of drone. And more recently, the bristling new wave release "Leave Me Alone", featuring pianist/singer Kristeen Young, shows GUIDES' aesthetic taking new form without dulling its edge.

GUIDES are coming up on the last days of their West Coast tour, places and dates below. - Ryan Mo
