Hailing from Chicago, post-punkers Pink Avalanche would not be out of place among that city’s finest independent bands. Their songs straddle the line between shoegaze and more economical punk rock. Begun as the studio project of guitarist-singer Che Arthur and drummer Adam Reach, the pair add Kortland Chase on guitar and Pete Croke on bass for their second album, The Luminous Heart of Nowhere, and live show. Arthur is a live sound engineer by day and is no doubt responsible for The Luminous Heart of Nowhere’s careful production, which manages to sound lush while retaining the harsher edges of the punk rock tunes.

We caught up with Pink Avalanche rounding out their tour with Survival Knife and Hungry Ghost at Brooklyn Night Bazaar. Their set features cuts from their recently released second album, from their first album Wraiths, and a cover of semi-obscure Austin band Starfish’s “Warp Factor.” For their live set, interstitial soundscapes link the songs together much like the two short instrumental tracks “:” and “::” that bookend “In Empty Spaces” on the album. Though drawing from two albums and a cover, they manage to musically link the separate selections into a narrative that flows through their entire set.

Like the night’s other bands, acidjack recorded this set from inside the soundboard cage at the Brooklyn Night Bazaar, with Schoeps MK41 microphones and a soundboard feed that included the engineer, Kenny’s, mics at either side of the stage. The sound is excellent. Enjoy!
