A NEW SUPERGROUP YOU MIGHT ACTUALLY LIKE
If I told you there were a new supergroup on the block that includes John LaMacchia (Candiria), Jeff Caxide (Isis), Greg Puciato (The Dillinger Escape Plan) and Julie Christmas (Made Out of Babies / Battle of Mice), you’d think the result would be some kind of furious explosion of heavy, right?
Not so much. Spylacopa, the new band featuring the aforementioned lineup, will release their debut EP in November — but their music is just about the most mellow thing imaginable, at least judging from the all-instrumental “Out West” on their MySpace page. The band actually got their start back in 2000 as a conduit for LaMacchia’s more experimental side, and added the rest of the members along the way. The five-song debut EP has been in the works since 2006.
Even if the EP sounds nothing like “Out West” the release is sure to be intriguing, if only because you know that this cast of characters is not going to shit out a piece of crap. You can bet your ass it’ll be weird — and we like weird.
