::Cellular Chaos (NYC/Philly)

"The frantic slam of NYC quartet Cellular Chaos draws a bit on the no-wave leanings of their guitarist Weasel Walter as well as the quivering frenzy of his excellent 1990s band Lake of Dracula. But there's something of-the-moment about their sound too, especially in the urgency of singer Admiral Grey... Cellular Chaos' fire has a singular crackle, one that sounds pretty impossible to extinguish." - Pitchfork
