Landmarks — Cuscutta 7″

Chicago’s Color Radio parted ways in the spring of 2012 and more or less morphed into a new outfit called Landmarks. With a new direction and a pair of additional members in the fold, the quintet quickly began to play local shows. They put out a couple of tunes this past winter and then headed to Logan Square’s The Public House to track their debut 7″ for the studio’s monthly Public House Sound Recordings series in May. “Cuscutta” b/w “Overflown” came out of that session, showcasing both how spacey and how tightly-wound the group can awesomely be. The motorik “Overflown” is easily my favorite of the two, echoing Micrcocastle-period Deerhunter (see “Nothing Ever Happened”). Frontman Stephen Simko‘s high-register vocals sit deep in the mix, taking a backseat to the pulsating bass and meandering keys. Then, almost to remind you where they started off with “Cuscutta,” the quintet bust the track wide open with a charge of overdriven guitars around 02:30 in. You can grab both sides of the 7″ at the top of this post and/or take a listen below.

Landmarks’ next upcoming show will be an opening slot for Crystal Stilts at the Empty Bottle on October 10. Advance tickets for the Chicago show are still available.
