Western Civ

Western Civ, a four-piece from Chapel Hill, NC, (originally from Florence, AL) follow in the footsteps of ‘90s indie staples Guided By Voices, Archers of Loaf, and Pavement with their brand of meandering, layered, spasmodic rock.  Their songs are unpredictable, fierce gems — smoothly and melodically resting on a plateau before jump-starting into a dissonant, serpentine arrangement that’s then topped off by lead singer Rich Henderson’s potent yelping.

Earlier this year, Western Civ organized Sing For Your Meat — A Guided By Voices Tribute, collecting GBV covers by artists such as the Flaming Lips, Thurston Moore, Superdrag, and Elf Power. That album and Western Civ’s most recent album, Shower The People You Love With Gold, are both available via the band’s “anti-label” collective, No More Fake Labels.
