The vastness of texture that My Gold Mask gets with only drums, guitar and vocals is something to marvel at. While many rock duos aim to make as much of a ruckus as possible, this Chicago-based avant-garde act goes their own way to spin a complex and cavernous sound. Gretta Rochelle's vocals take a good deal from lady singers of the 1980s, but layered over enormous drums and eerily toned guitars, they create something entirely new. It's like listening to Blondie blasted through a haunted castle; it's both electrifying and unsettling in its strangeness.
My Gold Mask will be releasing their new 12", A Million Miles (From Where We Were Last), at Schubas on Saturday, November 13th. Unicycle Loves You and Blane Fonda will open. The show is 21 and over and starts at 10 p.m. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased in advance here. The record is already available to stream here, and the track "I Don't Need the Reason" can be downloaded free below.
