The Midweekly – Teri Gender Bender

The Midweekly is our column from Mike Jeffers; lead singer of Chicago punk stalwarts SCRAMmusic junkie and all around righteous dude.

Better known for tearing it up with a strange, raucous style of rock as the guitarist, keyboardist, and lead vocalist of the band Le Butcherettes, here we find a different side of Teri Gender Bender on their recent solo release. After a spate of EPs and singles released this year, with a lot of sounding just like quick ideas off the dome, Saturn Sex feels more complete, and ready for that vinyl pressing. TGB has traded in noisy riffs for high quality electronic production. Deep bass, down beats, dub step and trap elements thump, and vibrate, and are sure to raise the hairs on the most appreciative techno heads. But the absolute best part are the terrific vocals that weave in and out of beauty, darkness, and mischievousness. Teri Gender Bender is one of those rare musical chameleons that never ceases to amaze.
