Where to begin with the barely begun? Readership Hostile is a cathartic collision of deathrock, goth, early punk and contemporary psych propelled by an effervescent, force-of-nature frontwoman. Darkly ornate yet visceral, the band ambushed its native Los Angeles with a string of startling performances in 2013, before bottling its organic on-stage aura into a brutally beautiful debut EP. Readership Hostile is vocalist Adrienne Pearson (formerly of Radio Vago and Shoot Out The Lights); guitarist Benn Ra (Hatesex/Frank the Baptist); drummer Christian Omar Madrigal Izzo (Rozz Williams/Chokebore); and Brit bassist Paul Rogers (Jonneine Zapata/Arithmetic of War). Neither the vision of a single member nor the neat collective expression of all four, Readership Hostileâ€™s songs, though structured and disciplined, can defy (or even deny) convention, while the pixie-ish Pearsonâ€™s intuitively theatrical performances embrace stream-of-consciousness spontaneity and impulsive, abstract instincts. Readership Hostileâ€™s 6-song EP, recorded and co-produced by Bari Bari (Mephisto Walz/Christian Death), was released January 27, 2014.
