Roma 79 


Roma 79, “Gold”

Though it's located four hours east on Interstate 70, St. Louis' Ascetic Records plays an integral part in Kansas City's music scene. Home to KC outfit the Stella Link, the label also sends a constant barrage of other gems through KC — so much so that out-of-towners such as Traindodge, Riddle of Steel and Dropsonic feel like locals. The unifying thread among Ascetic bands is kickass drummers — a weapon that's certainly in play for San Francisco's Roma 79. This floor-shaking quartet boasts more assets: distinctive vocals, rad guitar interplay, tasteful electronic infusions and airy atmospherics. Thursday, expect Roma 79 to preview material from its upcoming LP, 1985.
