EN With an infectious energy that shines through even the most plodding beats, the debut LP from Chicago's Melkbelly is the kind of inspired noise-pop that similarly conquers 100 sound-alikes to lodge itself in the brain.

Nothing Valley sounds like a long-lost indie-rock staple from the early '90s, all squealing guitars and lo-fi production values, conveying an endearingly ramshackle punk vibe that belies its artful construction—a hyper-caffeinated Pavement with extra distortion pedals. Jittery start-stop art-pop nuggets sit alongside droning bass riffs, often fused to ferocious squalls of sound.

Throughout it all is the minor-key melodicism found in the jangling licks and sing-song vocals of Miranda Winters, who sounds like nothing so much as a third Deal sister. (It's no surprise that Melkbelly is currently on tour with The Breeders.) The music's frenetic exuberance makes Melkbelly its own beast, agreeably loose and loud, and thoroughly accessible below its deceptive, no-wave exterior.

Like most bands, Only 2 Sticks first began life behind garage doors. Yann Gengler (guitarist and vocals ) and Billy Kauffmann (guitarist) founded the band in 2010 yet something was missing – the drum line! So a drummer was quickly found within Darren Biggar (percussion) who's been a core member ever since. After years of establishing and refining their unique style, they welcomed the latest member of the band, Christophe Becker (bass).

Now the band feels ready for the stage with many songs up their sleeves. Influenced by genres such as Grunge and Rock, among others, they’ll entertain you with their personal "Only 2 Sticks" twist.

Only 2 Sticks are an ambitious and determined band dedicated to one of life's greatest virtues - Music.
