Ruby Hornet Reviews the Chicago ‘Which is Worse’ release show

Daniel Wolff over at Ruby Hornet did a write up on our recent Chicago show, celebrating the release of ‘Which is Worse’

Problems That Fix Themselves closed out the night with one of their best performances I’ve seen to date. They played a number of songs off their new album, including chaotic, pop-electro track, “8:62,” and some older material including the guttural, machine-like “to help you stop smoking” off their 2010 release, Seconds. The set concluded with tribal-noise track “Slowburn,” which ended, as the title promises, in noisy incineration, Tabbia below the sound table smashing together two voicemail machines, Borozan above, carefully manipulating dissonant tone clusters and thumping bass lines. Audience members could be heard cheering and applauding, many taking videos and pictures, bringing a cathartic, celebratory end to the evening.
