FATTY ACIDS, GLITTERCORE
9 p.m. Maxine's. $5.
Milwaukee synth-pop outfit The Fatty Acids just released a single called "Airsick," which recalls, by turns, everything from Tame Impala's psychedelic skygazing to Animal Collective's spazzier moments to XTC's propulsive percussion.
Elsewheres, the band's tune "Unscreened" is an all-over-the-place jumble of schizo-pop that I swear to you reminds me at times of the Violent Femmes in its dude-angstiness.
Also on this bill: Little Rock alt-rock torch-carriers Glittercore, who earlier this year released their self-titled debut album, which you can check out on the band's ReverbNation profile. Recommended cuts: "Lazarus," "Unhinged," and "Trippy 6ix."
