The Disco Biscuits

Media Title

They’re workhorses. They host insane, talent-packed festivals. And they’re ours—all ours. This week, the Disco Biscuits embark on a three-night residency at the Electric Factory, with different supporting acts at each show. Let’s break them down, shall we?

ICHISAN is Igor Skafar, a Slovenian who specializes in a beautifully heady mix of electrodisco and jazzy ambient undulations. Exemplifying the way that the Biscuits call on an astoundingly broad range of genres, from disco to jam rock, his set’ll definitely whet appetites for those groovier, chiller and loungier moments. The dude’s got a great collection of Spotify and SoundCloud sets that are worth your listens, too.

Raq is baq, or so they like to say. A four-piece from Burlington, VT that self-describes as “high performance rock ‘n roll,” they certainly lean towards the other end of the Biscuit spectrum. Playful, jammy and pleasant, a listen to their catalogue takes you back to Phish from the mid-‘90s—a little barber shoppy, a bit bluesy, with a natural tendency to let the song take them where it might.

Lastly, The Werks, a Dayton, OH quartet, definitely amplify the psychedelic guitar solos the Biscuits are quite capable of. Guitar work that shoots off into space and gets pulled back in by capable percussion will definitely sate the fan who’s down with some face-melting fret work. Almost like Scofield and Lettuce met up with Mark Knopfler and took drugs, which sounds pretty good to us. // BILL CHENEVERT
