Meatbodies
Meatbodies
Born and raised in Los Angeles, Meatbodies are heavy, groovy, psychedelic and headbanging.

Alice is a self critical epic. As somber as the fog, intoxicating as jasmine. A near fable of fear, sexuality, war, religion, technology, peace, philosophy, hedonism, sociology, evolution, and ecclesiasticism. Like a whisper on a vinyl record from1952. Alice is open with dilated pupils. Flushed with passion, under soft lit words. A dance hall in the jungle, interrupted by the thunderous disease of the contemporary man. Alice is no religion, but may be seen as one. Alice is no person, no god. Alice is an idea, a feeling, covered in pink lace. Alice is a message, a hidden commentary of modern day, bathed in fantasy, abounding in ecstasy, feeling colors. Feminine in nature, torrid fantastic emotion, unique and tangible. A stinging kiss on a crisp November night.

Meatbodies return ascending towards ground level bringing us ALICE. A “heavy-pop” concept, metal on molly. Chad Ubovich, Patrick Nolan, and Kevin Boog step out in new form, souring through diverse stories, tones, and characters. Dancing between quiet and loud, funk and doom. pop and noise. Their messages preached celestial and deafening, a sacred scripture for today’s world. A warbling rhodes piano, a liquifying electric guitar, a ghostly synthesizer skating across the sands of a 12 stringed acoustic. Meatbodies dig deep into the rich soils of earth to reveal the chaotic sensual vibrations underneath the fields we walk upon. Connecting our limbs, our mouths, our consciousness to the microcosms of the grime, all while being lit by black light. Captured wriggling and alive in San Francisco by Ubovich and Eric Bauer at The Bauer Mansion. ALICE is a step in the right direction, a new direction, a new way of thinking.
Watching the futures, watching the world burn.

"Every person involved in this deserves to be high-fived until their hands chafe and bleed." – NOISEY –

"Chad & The Meatbodies' B-side "Mountain" has the heaviness of a Black Sabbath song, the fuzziness of a FUZZ track, and the unexpectedly polished vocals of a 2011 or later album from Thee Oh Sees. Those are some big shoes to fill." – THE BAY BRIDGED"

"Those paying attention might recognize Chad Ubovich from his stints as sideman in not only Mikal Cronin's live band, but also Ty's own heavy rock trio Fuzz – Chad's a helluva player and his shreddability is on ultimate display here! " – Permanent Records Chicago
Western Star
Raised mostly in a holler on the border of West Virginia and Virginia. Formed this past summer while working on a cattle ranch in East Texas. This family band is a second generation alt-country four piece that brings garage-rock speed and power, southern rock harmonies and Modest Mousey punk pomp to their music. They played their first real gig this past October during ACL at the HIckoids' Corn Lover's Fiesta in Austin, sharing the stage with Old 97s.
