Track Premiere: “Chicargo” by Geinus
As we crawl closer to the October 6th drop of Geinus’ Keeper on Brokest Records, we’re ecstatic to release another exclusive preview of the dense 8 song album. Following up on our premiere of Keeper‘s debut track — “Catacombs” — we’ve got another A-side offering from the near twenty-year vets of Newfoundland noise rock.
Geinus – “Chicargo” (Keeper, Brokest Records 2018)
If you haven’t already, go check out our in-depth delve into the genius of Geinus. We touched on the teetering balance of their jagged and commanding riffs, the sparsely placed dissonant use of vocal, and the meticulous arrangements that can be as jarring as they are carefully crafted. Above all else, it is the visceral live experience of Geinus that is communicated throughout the track list of Keeper. The 6 minutes of “Chicargo” fits comfortably in that turbid troposphere.
Geinus celebrate the release of Keeper on October 6th at The Fat Cat in St. John’s, along with Puce and Danny Keating.

“Geinus have been honing their sound for so long that — to those of us who have been lucky to see their sporadic stints of live shows at bars in St. John’s over the years — Geinus are just Geinus. Their songs are typically brash and moody instrumentals with jagged and commanding riffs, sparsely placed dissonant use of vocal, and meticulous arrangements that can be as jarring as they are carefully crafted. But there is something seemingly indescribable about the air of this band. There is an atmosphere in the room when Geinus play, and it can suck the body heat and beer breath out of any venue, and pull all the eyes and ears to its menacing presence.”
