Polaroids (see, above) have never really gone away and neither has rock ‘n roll. Milwaukee’s Elusive Parallelograms are akin to the art of the Polaroid, all washes and waves of guitars and synths with plenty of fuzz to make a messy and relatable feel. With their roots buried deep in some serious rock roots, they’ve garnered lots of praise for last year’s release, Modern Splendor. This Friday sees the band releasing a brand new EP at Milwaukee’s Cactus Club, called Habits and where Modern Splendor had a bit of give and even seemed sentimentally psychedelic in terms of an homage to 90’s’ Dandy Warhols and the like, Habits is a bit of a crusher, knocking down sonic walls and making better use out of big hooks and earnest vocals from Andrew Foys, still playing on those previous 90’s themes, but craftily making that anthemic sound a bit more modern. Listen to the new EP, here, and check in on what the band is up to this weekend on Dori’s Girlina Show today at 1 p.m. for WMSE’s Local Lunchbox.
