CMJ Music Marathon 2014: Saturday Recap

DSC07725Well, I never made it out of Williamsburg on Saturday for the last day of CMJ, but I hardly felt deprived of good, interesting music. As on Friday, I started at BV's day party at Baby's All Right, arriving just as LA's Girlpool was setting up. The guitar duo did the cute riot grrl thing, with pigtails and high pitched voices singing tracks like and "Stomach Ache" and "Blah blah blah."

But, it was no preparation for Japan-by-way-of-UK band Bo Ningen, who mixed punk, noise, progressive rock and hardcore in an overwhelming set that blew me away the same way Ryoji Ikeda did a week earlier. (It helped that Baby's All Right set loose their crazy stage display, which looked like a Lite Brite on speed.) Goddamned ferocious. What is it with the Japanese, anyway?
