Chicago powerpop with sax
Getting people groovin and having fun. Nothing like cold beer and loud tunes.
Music to count your freckles to
The Hold Steady meet Bob Dylan. When trying to describe Cousin Dud one usually is unsure where to start. Impulse says to speak to the raw emotion that comes out in the delivery of the songs, but then it seems the content of the dark, yet beautiful storytelling would be undermined. That’s why they’re rarely compared to just 1 other band. It’s always a combination of 2 to make sure the full range of their music is captured.
The Heavy Machine
The Heavy Machine came together in the fall of 2011, gaining residence at a local bar and gigging around the Chicago Suburbs. Kristen Kridle (Guitar/Vocals/Songwriting), Justin Spencer (Bass) and Zack Darce (percucssion) have been building their arsenal from fragments of genres ranging from Bluesy Garage Rock, to Jazz and Funk; combining these elements to make a new sound of their own. Each with their own style to add to the mix, the three-piece clicked instantly. Their goal is short and sweet: to play music as much as possible, to connect with other musicians and music lovers alike, and to enjoy the ride.
