Cincinnati is the new Olympia, Wash., this week, as Arms Exploding and Caterpillar Tracks, two politically charged bands with aggressive Post-Punk/Post- Hardcore tendencies, celebrate their 7-inch vinyl releases on local label Phratry Records.
Newport’s Southgate House is ground zero for getting your face kicked in (sonically speaking) Friday night. Caterpillar Tracks and Arms Exploding, whose 7-inch is a split, bring their kicking-and-screaming neo-Noise Rock — and a box of freshly pressed vinyl singles — to the Parlor for a 9 p.m. release show and party. Sounding like two bands informed both by grumpy ’90s Kill Rock Stars groups like Unwound and the more-Pop-friendly At the Drive In, Caterpillar Tracks and Arms Exploding make a perfect pair for a split release.
