Chicago’s Disappears have been together only since 2009, but they’ve accomplished a lot in that time, releasing their debut album Lux in 2010, followed this year with the stellar Guider EP, and bringing on Steve Shelley of Sonic Youth as a new member after founding drummer Graeme Gibson left to continue his work with the Fruit Bats. The band has a new record in the works, and they showed off a solid chunk of it here at Union Pool, in a set that was mostly new and unreleased material. Union Pool has been killing it all summer with great lineups of bands, but this night – with Disappears headlining and Brooklyn’s own The Psychic Paramount opening – stood out as one of the absolute best. Disappears’ new songs expand the scope of their songs just a bit, though their reverb-soaked, krautrock-meets-Velvet Underground (with a dash of the Fall) sound is still intact. But although only three of the songs (as far as I could tell) were previously released (“Halo,” “Magics” and “Marigold”) Disappears held the crowd rapt with their thick squall of guitar, with lead singer/guitarist Brian Case (also of the Ponys) singing with the echo on overdrive beneath. Expect big things from a band that, despite members’ other commitments, is hardly looking like a side project.
