Chavez
Cockfighters

Chavez went silent in 1996, although they are keen to point out that they never did anything as dramatic as actually break up. This first new material in two decades is a nine minute reminder of Chavez’s swaggering indie-rock power: Cockfighters sounds just the right amount of nineties. 12” on Matador.

Endless Boogie
Vibe Killer

Endless Boogie craftily anticipate the comments that listeners might offer by putting the phrase in their name. And they do indeed boogie endlessly, settling into a psychedelic ZZ Top kind of vibe and then riding it all the way over the horizon. Vibe Killer is another fine collection of cosmic chug, released on CD and LP by No Quarter.

Chavez
Gone Glimmering

Chavez frontman Matt Sweeney is probably better known than his cult '90s band. He recorded the album Superwolf with Will Oldham under his Bonnie Prince Billy moniker and was a member of Zwan with Slint's Dave Pajo and the Smashing Pumpkins' Billy Corgan. It is now time to revisit what he did first namely gritty, grimy, excellent angular rock. Gone Glimmering is available on vinyl LP on Matador

Chavez
Ride The Fader

Wannabe grit-rockers Chavez took after all the bands of the early indie generation who had guitars, knew how to use them and were still miserable. In their early days, they took the riff squalor of Slint and added it to the heavyweight math grunging of Don Caballero. Their second collection of riffs with songs coincidentally attached to them was Ride The Fader, and now it gets reissued by Matador.
