Dan Friel
Dan Friel, of the now-disbanded Parts & Labor, shows off his staticky yet triumphant noise-pop constructions—like 8-bit Nintendo soundtracks in distress—as heard on a recent Thrill Jockey full-length, Total Folklore. Helping to set the stage are local trio Bambara, which blends postpunk, shoegaze and post-hardcore into a menacing and hypnotic swirl, and Billyburg synth-rockers Bennio Qwerty.
