Detachment Kit 

Saturday, June 5, at the Replay Lounge.

It might seem strange that Detachment Kit recorded its latest album at Steve Albini's studio when the band's name stems from a desire to distance itself from indie rock. It's not that principal members Ian Menard and Charlie Davis have a problem with the Chicago scene -- after all, Detachment Kit formed there and is on good terms with a lot of those bands. But the Kit's members want to take listeners completely off-guard with every release. The band's familiar scratchy, lo-fi appeal on the album Of This Blood doesn't exactly do that, but it does hint at the future. The record is essentially Menard's and Davis' intertwined short stories transposed to a surrealist, fairy-tale drinking game. (You'll have to down a few beers while you listen to the album to fully understand.)
