Melkbelly are born out of Chicago’s busily bubbling underground DIY music scene(s), with members who have played in all sorts of contexts and groups over the years. Debut album Nothing Valley is an angular and direct record of high-energy rock music that manages to be experimental and catchy all at the same time! LP and CD editions on Wax Nine.

7/10 Clinton Staff review, 12 October 2017

Though they have influences that traverse several genres but initially it's fairly easy to pin this collection of Chicago vets down to one easi-use comparison  - the Breeders. These songs have the same lop sided pop charm albeit a much more muddy and gritty proposition. The band sandblast through the annals of 90s indie rock with a keen eye on oddball time signatures and changes of paces that despite singer Miranda Winters similarity to Kim Deal are an altogether more complex proposition. 

Sometimes the song seem to be chasing their tails ad infinitum ('Greedy Gull') and it's this Deerhoof-ish obsession with bizarre repetition that threatens to derail the brightness in their songs. It's a complex and progressive brand of indie rock but I'm sure there's a pop band in here trying to get out. On 'Twin Looking Motherfucker' there's some fabulous fuzzed up riffs and Winters voice is always like sunshine creeping through a turned up tin can. 

They are hard work that's for sure and I'd like them to straighten out some of their kinks but this is loud and raucous grunge that should be an absolute blast live.
