Hunched over in a ball with a guitar held tightly inside. The speakers pulse heavily to this intense wave of reverberation. Distant words echo from Katrina Stonehart's mouth that only he knows the true meaning of. Now a prominent figure in the Chicago music scene, Katrina Stonehart aka Drew Gibson also of Baby Birds Don't Drink Milk is the musical mastermind behind this comforting creation. Gibson also point person and creator of label Solid Melts and co-founder of new tape label Teen River. Still with all the beautiful noises created by Katrina Stonehart comes and even heavier raw noise. Both sides combine in an epic journey through the sole of one Katrina Stonehart. Seriously do not miss one minute of the amazing 26 minute performance we tracked. Ride the wave into the sunset or into the black hole, either odyssey will return you to that one place really feel happy.
