IfIHadAHiFi

Sat December 14, 2019 @ 9:00 pm

w/ Daughters of St. Crispin, Cave Curse

The group originally formed in Central Wisconsin in 2000, following the breakup of their previous band, The Pop Machine. Following the style of the band’s name, each member took a palindrome as a pseudonym: DrAwkward (drums), MrAlarm (bass, synthesizer, guitar) and YaleDelay (guitar). All three founding members share vocals. Shortly after forming, they expanded to a quartet with the addition of NoiseLesion (synthesizer, keyboards, sampling).

In 2001, IfIHadAHiFi released Ones and Zeroes, their debut album, on Milwaukee’s No Karma Records. The album was reviewed favorably in Pitchfork, Milk Magazine, Splendid and Slide the Needle. Shortly after the record’s release, NoiseLesion was replaced by RenoLoner (synthesizer, guitar) and the group began regularly touring the US.

Their second album, No More Music, was released on No Karma in 2004. It received strong reviews from Rockpile, Read Magazine (where it was an Editor’s Pick), Devil in the Woods, Skyscraper, and Splendid. Following No More MusicAlternative Press named IfIHadAHiFi as one of their “Bands You Need to Know” in 2005.

Crustacean Records released Hot Nuggets!, an IfIHadAHiFi/Modern Machines split CD/LP, in 2006. Each band performed six songs – one new song, one cover of the other band, and four additional covers.

In 2007, RenoLoner was replaced by RevEver (synthesizer, guitar, keyboards, bass). The group worked on a planned EP, Tragedy Breeds Success, throughout 2006 and 2007, but these recordings were shelved in favor of a new album. Fame By Proxy was recorded in late 2007 and released the following year on Latest Flame Records.

While writing new material, the band learned that Nada Surf had named their next album If I Had a Hi-Fi; in return, IfIHadAHiFi announced that their next album, planned for 2011 but finally released in January 2012, would be titled Nada Surf.[1]
