Melkbelly (Chicago, IL)
Noisy, subversively catchy and rhythmically sophisticated Chicago quartet Melkbelly emerged from Chicago’s DIY spaces with its experimental instincts intact in songs. Melkbelly’s members live and breathe Chicago’s art and music underground where their paths crossed and alliances were forged. Vocalist/guitarist Miranda Winters played solo in folk rock project reddelicious. Brothers Bart and Liam Winters ran an influential show space in Chicago. Drawn together by their passion for East Coast noise, they recruited James Wetzel from improvisational free-drum/noise duo Ree-Yees.

In early 2017, Melkbelly recorded Nothing Valley with Dave Vettraino at Chicago’s Public House, writing about half the album in the studio and tracking it to 8-track analog tape.
Nothing Valley isn’t just Melkbelly’s debut, it is the anticipated inaugural release for Wax Nine Records (a sister label to Carpark Records) headed by Sadie Dupuis of Speedy Ortiz–who’s been a Melkbelly superfan ever since proclaiming their “Bathroom at the Beach” 7″ 2015’s Song of the Summer.

    “Known for its antique shops, kitschy-cool vintage stores and art galleries, Cherokee Street has always been a local gem. But now this artsy area is burgeoning into a neighborhood with the making of the next “it” spot.”
