Time Out on 11/26

From Time Out Chicago

Chicago's Yakuza doesn't so much mix styles as it does paste them together—speed-metal yields to brief passages of pensive post-rock or jazz. But in this case, dilettantism isn't a bad thing; each part colors the others, and a brooding tension lingers throughout. Support comes from long-running sonic antagonists Bloodyminded, specializing in earsplitting electronic noise.
