FACS (feat. members of Disappears)
+ Sonic Cathedral DJs
FACS sprung from the ashes of Chicago band Disappears in early 2017. Initially formed around Disappears members Brian Case, Noah Leger, and Jonathan van Herik, the band now counts Alianna Kalaba (Cat Power, We Raggazi) as a member following van Herik's amicable departure. FACS use minimalism and space to make modern art rock. The band's debut album "Negative Houses” was recorded at Electrical Audio by Grammy award-winning producer John Congleton (St. Vincent, War on Drugs, Roots) and just have been released by Trouble In Mind records on March 30th 2018.
“A darker and more brutalist take on post-punk” // “Throughout the disc, from the Bauhaus-esque “Primary” to the dancier “All Futures”, which recalls Disappears’ “Era”, drummer Noah Leger’s Tortoise-esque rhythms keep the airless atmosphere just the right side of stifling.” Uncut - 8/10.
"As a whole, it’s the sort of album you could put in a frame and hang on the wall. This is art for the ears”. Punkstatic.
