Whatever Brains, Sex Church 

When: Wed., Nov. 2, 9:30 p.m. 2011
Price: $5

The Vancouver foursome Sex Church collects an impressive bunch of dark, heavy punk on its second LP,Growing Over, released this month via Load Records. Coated in Spacemen 3 scuzz but throbbing like Suicide and pushing like Neu!, Sex Church's mire suggests a point between the manic garage of TV Ghost and the mind-bludgeoning fog-punk of The Men, with a shifty sneer all their own. Raleigh's Whatever Brains have a crooked and jaundiced eye on the world, too, but it's expressed in a wirier and more spastic brand of skewed-and-skewered post-punk. But for their differences, better pairs are rare. —Bryan C. Reed
