Enablers are an anomaly in today’s music scene. A band of independent rock veterans whose credits include stints in Swans, June of 44, Touched by a Janitor and Codeine, these four learned men having taken the angular and redefining sounds of their previous groups legacies and combined with something more transcendental and immediately assaulting; the power of the word. The guitars and drums collide in bombast, managing to both scathe and soothe around Pete Simonelli’s awe inspiring prose; the two together hits you right where the sounds and words come from…the gut.
"Fitting to its name, the San Francisco quartet Enablers writes songs that are equally manipulative and encouraging to our darkest desires. The band made up of journeyman veterans of Swans, Tarnation, Nice Strong Arm and Toiling Midgets merges dramatic and flowing melodic soundscapes — of which SF Gate calls “possibly the world’s best power trio” — with the visceral spoken narratives of underground literary veteran Pete Simonelli. It’s almost as though the band’s fluid and often soothing music exists to distract our better instincts while Simonelli whispers above it all, urging and lulling us into the dark, decrepit world of his words."
