Last year I reported on new-industrial duo Uniform's first trip to Chicago, and tomorrow night they return, opening for Cult of Youth at the Empty Bottle. The Brooklyn-based band, made up of Ben Greenberg (formerly of the Men and Pygmy Shrews) and Michael Berdan (of Drunkdriver), combines simple, stripped-down, rapid-fire drum machines with wall-of-feedback guitar sounds and desperate, damaged vocals. Today's 12 O'Clock Track is "Of Sound Mind and Body," the band's most unsettling song yet—over the course of its ten minutes, it goes from brutal noise rock into disjointed feedback, the electronic beat remaining unfazed as Berdan loses his mind over everything. Uniform is definitely a band to check out live: they're punishingly loud, confrontational, and alienating. Tomorrow's set is sure to be weird and wild; do not miss it.
