"Nirvana-like" has become shorthand for any band both noisy and melodic. The word fits Kansas City's Bodisartha (born in the wilds of Springfield, that name can't be an accident), especially with singer Josh Thomas' ragged screams and shattershot guitar chords. Shoot, there are songs on the group's debut, Find Yourself Getting Lost — "Is It a Gay" or "Like a Virus" come to mind — that are better than those last few fossils turned up for Nirvana's recent rarities box. The band finds its own unexplored mountain ranges of loud and catchy bits. It won't be long till Frances Bean is — um — dating, so maybe a band inspired by her dad's songs (important note: not imitating them) is something we can pay attention to again.
