Axis: SovA/Obnox

When: Wed., April 8, 8:30 p.m. 2015

“Low-brow, high-impact. One note philosophy,” claims the Chicago-based psych band, and, upon spinning Early Surf, that seems pretty spot-on. A few years back, guitarist/songwriter Brett Sova was experiencing some sense of divine intervention amidst Jimi Hendrix’s Axis: Bold as Love, resulting in that wah-infused, far-out lead guitar work that riddles his latest album. Lo-fi, indeed; Sova works his way through sprawling guitar anthems and punk-rock grooves, all seemingly filtered through a two-by-four. There are enough ideas circulating in the album to keep the listener listening (the gypsy melodies of “Secret Hand” push on to weird organ drones in “Glass”). (Sandy)
