Friday, January 3, 2013 Lineup
- Cold Beat (feat. members of Grass Widow)
- Tony Molina
- Cairo Pythian
“As San Francisco post-punk trio Grass Widow, Hannah Lew, Raven Mahon, and Lillian Maring create intriguingly off-kilter harmonies, but in 2013, they’ve shown that they make pretty awesome music apart, too.
Lew has put out “Worms,” the first single from her own solo project Cold Beat. “Worms” sounds a bit like a vintage surf-rock song chopped up and tossed in a blender– breezy riffs, tumbling percussion, and Lew’s foggy vocals swirl around in a melodic maelstrom. That description fits Lew’s other band too, but Cold Beat sounds like it’s coming from a more singular and personal sensibility. Lew is also a visual artist and filmmaker, and Cold Beat’s debut single shares its droll, DIY charm with her short films and music videos (she’s directed clips for King Tuff, Frankie Rose, Hunx & His Punx and more).” -Pitchfork
