"Industrial grungegaze" trio DSTVV is the arch creation of Joel Cusumano, former '90s teen model and creator of the bizarro Tumblr-famous blog BLAMEASPARTAME. Done with playing in scruffy, over-earnest Bay Area garage rock bands, he engineered DSTVV as a musical approximation of the bad-vector-art and '90s-obsessed teen culture that currently permeates some of the weirder parts of alt-culture. DSTVV (the initialism's meaning is yet undisclosed) nixes an IRL drummer in place of blown-out Apple Logic-programmed beats, and the gentile strum of Joel's Fender Strat's melts with Corgan-esque Big Muffs and chorus pedals. He also hooked up with synth player Gloria Pérez-Villela, with whom he'd been swapping old synth-pop files online. Joel swears he's only listened to MINISTRY and COCTEAU TWINS during the months before creating the songs that appear on DSTVV's debut; he might be putting us on. DSTVV's debut EP "Molly Soda" is the first release by Teen Witch, and it features contributions from lo-fi chanteuse KEEL HER (Critical Heights).
