Reverbalicious shadows

When Brian Case, the guitarist for Chicago indie rockers the Ponys, began moonlighting with the group Disappears, it was no subtle gesture to release two 7-inches, both with cover art paying homage to Kraut rock icons Can. Drawing out fugue-like moments in rhythm, where every grumbling melody swims in reverb and darkness, is the group’s calling card. And with their first full-length, Lux (Kranky), Disappears delve deeper into the shadows of Midwestern post-punk.
