Self-proclaimed “industrial grungegaze” trio DSTVV have been garnering attention in the indie music blog circuit with only a handful of songs that permeate through your ear canals with their lo-fi vocals, fuzzy guitar and distorted synthesizer. Hailing from San Francisco, DSTVV bring a sound that is reminiscent of '90s alternative noise rock combined with the lo-fi pop stylings of recent years. Their EP 'Molly Soda,' (featuring the spritely vocals of Keel Her) named after a cult Tumblr-famous celebrity, probably best demonstrates this, but the fun favorite of the day has to be their Young Marble Giants cover of “N.I.T.A.” Member Joel Cusumano is also pretty Tumblr famous, (his “award-winning” blog blameaspartame is uproarious) having utilized the same primitive '90s vector art and teen culture from his blog into the visual aesthetic of DSTVV. Recently they've been popping up at the 2013 Noise Pop Festival in San Francisco and various clubs in Los Angeles as part of their Spring Breakers tour. Get into the Bay Area-Orange County connection with this idiosyncratic group alongside Useless Eaters, Snow White and Froth at Burger Records.
