"I really like the boy-girl thing, like Sonic Youth and Eric's Trip but grungier," says The .Gifs' Bijoux Wilcox. "And I use a Grunge FX pedal, which I love." Wilcox moved from Toronto last year and began jamming with Coleman Johnston in a Dartmouth warehouse. While recording a split tape with The Cannisters, Jesse Webber added bass. "He brings a futuristic element," says Wilcox. Hypnotic with hazy garage rock true to '90s grunge with dreamy vocals, they've played lots together at Jacob's Lounge. "Any Friday night, you can come and see a sweet show," she says. So get The .Gifs.
