Birthing Hips.

Birthing Hips.

Boston's Birthing Hips play topsy-turvy skronk-pop that spins listeners around until they're dizzy enough to lock into an appropriately twisted dance routine. Angular vocal inflections, acute tempo changes, and erratic outbreaks lend the band's music a welcomed sense of disorientation. Their 2016 release, No Sorry, induces a manic daze, while also lending a balanced sense of accessibility like any successful pop album. "Up Ramp" quickly swerves out of a state of poppy placidity to a jumbled spaz-punk episode, occasionally entering a realm of heavy, psychedelia. They perform here with Winnipeg's Tunic, who play wailing, discordant noise punk behind their new EP Boss, released in July. Madison's Coordinated Suicides (which includes Tone Madison contributor Mike Noto) join them with ominous, sludgy noise-rock. —Emili Earhart
