Wednesday are a young North Carolina band who make starry eyed, bleeding ear shoegaze. Their alt-country dream fuzz crushes the oxygen like a scrunched Diet Mountain Dew bottle and, through frontwoman Karly Hartzman, sketches a lyrical portrait of Southern strip mall Americana like … a discarded Diet Mountain Dew bottle. Depending on how much tolerance you have for the indie-Twitter-hype pipeline, perhaps you could have predicted their eventual elevation to outdoor Mohawk headliner way back at SXSW 2022. Sadly, Wednesday’s stock options have since expired. Consider investing instead in opener Cryogeyser’s softly sung (and even, uh, softly-er strummed) L.A. dream pop.
