New post-slackers Dodgeball play Ridgewood Community College on July 13th

New post-slackers Dodgeball play Ridgewood Community College on July 13th

Even with only one four-track EP under their belt (released in January 2017), NYC's Dodgeball already showcase an intriguing '90s revival sound influenced in equal parts by slack rock and post rock. A twisted, cranky guitar, an evocative nerd-boy singing, and a killer name that's a 10 on the nostalgia scale. Like the mellower cousin of Ovlov or Krill, Dodgeball forge charmingly sad, somewhat hesitant songs, with the power to win you over. We are entranced by tracks like "Veggies" (streaming), constructed on a fragile web of intersecting guitar lines and precarious vocal melodies, slowly gaining more drive and density. Don't miss their next show at Ridgewood Community College with Dark Tones, Oceanator, and Panoramic. - Allie Miller, photo by M.Cicchetti Photography.
