Why: What is Abandoncy? Well, it is a completely made up word for starters. It sounds quite real though. It is also the name of a rather tasty noise rock trio out of Kansas City, Missouri. They’re big on the whole DIY thing. Their debut album Hollow//Living was recorded at a local warehouse music venue called Farewell Transmission and the band produced the record themselves. They also created the artwork for the record themselves. It is a picture of a freaky marionette that they uncovered in one of the band members’ houses.


The first single from the album is titled ‘Nashville Hot’. It is a short slice of noise rock fury. Throughout the track is the fascinating angularity of post-rock and some unnerving lyrics, “And I can smell your whiskey smile / I can feel tomorrow’s shiner” which hint at themes of violence and alcoholism. You up for it?
