Louisville quartet Invaders is definitely no exception to the current psychedelic trend. The band formed in 2009 with the release of Floating, but was dormant for a few years before releasing their follow-up, Dig a Hole, in May. Static-noise rock that takes chances instrumentally but lets loose with recklessness in the vocal realm, Invaders are a gem in the small indie scene of Louisville. Reverb makes their lyrics far from discernible, leading the brunt of your attention to their rhythm section. Luckily, all components gel for a fierce wall of sound, whether it be the howling frenzy of guitar, the brick layer of fuzz bass, or the percussion — which can make for a punchy metronome on “Bound and Blown,” or tackle more tasty time changes on “Three Eyes.” Don’t count on finding much about them on the Interwebs, as they keep a low profile. Try your luck with a listen to Dig a Hole, however, and that may be all you need to know.
