with Slow Pulp and Thick Business
Overflowing with riffs and reckless abandon, Post Animal is a psych rock five-piece from the tightly knit Chicago music scene. Since forming in 2015, the band has developed a loyal fanbase, howling from the depths of sweaty basement shows and packed rock clubs. True to their DIY roots, the band has booked numerous tours and self-released two EPs, which have garnered them coverage from the likes of NME, Paper Mag, Vice, and PASTE.
Boasting the individual talents of Dalton Allison, Jake Hirshland, Javi Reyes, Wesley Toledo, Matt Williams, and Joe Keery (currently an inactive contributing member), Post Animal has toured and performed with the likes of White Reaper, Twin Peaks, and Wavves.
Slow Pulp is a four piece dream-punk band oscillating between dream-like states and a frantic sense of urgency.
Way out west, there was this band that goes by the name of Thick Business. At least, that was the handle that their parents gave them, but they never had much use for it themselves. See, this band, they called themselves, “THICK BUSINESS.” Now, “THICK BUSINESS,” there’s a name no band would apply to themselves where I come from. But then there’s a lot about that band that didn’t make a whole lot of sense. And a lot about where they lived likewise. But then again, maybe that’s why I found the place so darned interestin’. See, they call boise the “City of Trees”; but I didn’t find it to be that, exactly. But i’ll allow it as there are some nice trees there. ‘Course I ain’t never been to London, and I ain’t seen France. And I ain’t never seen no queen in her damned undies, so the feller says. But i’ll tell you what – after seeing Boise, and this here band I’m tellin ya bout, well, I guess I seen somethin’ every bit as stupefyin’ as you’d seen in any of them other places. And in English, too. So I can die with a smile on my face, without feelin’ like the good Lord screwed me. Now this here band i’m tell ya bout, started in the early ought teens – just about the time of our conflict with…whatever. I only mention it because sometimes there’s a band… I won’t say a hero, cause, what’s a hero? Sometimes there’s a band. And I’m talkin’ about the THICK BUSINESS here – the THICK BUSINESS from Boise Idaho. Sometimes, there’s a band, well, they’re the band for their time and place. They fit right in there. And that’s the THICK BUSINESS. The THICK BUSINESS from Boise, Idaho. And even if they’re a sexy band – and the THICK BUSINESS was most certainly that. Quite possibly the sexiest in all of Ada county, which would place them high in the runnin’ for sexiest worldwide. Sometimes there’s a band, sometimes there’s a band. Well, I lost my train of thought here. But… aww hell. I’ve done introduced enough.
