The Government Center
Cincinnati has been host to a lot of great garage punk music lately (Crime of Passing, The Drin, Choncy), and while the city’s tedward certainly rock as hard as any of those groups, they do it in a decidedly different vein. Led by singer-songwriter Terence Lee, tedward’s debut cassette, Floater, is loud, amped-up fuzz rock in the vein of Ovlov and a few other northeastern, Exploding in Sound-core groups, as well as omnivorous, poppy shoegaze-influenced rock bands like Enumclaw.
Television Blonde is the Slowcore/Shoegaze project of Cincinnati musician and artist, Gabriel Beckles. Joined live by Caleb Wirsching, Christian Gehring, and Kevin Dayspring. Established in spring of 2020.
