The 1900s are a solid Chicago based group, whom unfortunately went on hiatus nearly a decade ago. Rumor has it that they’ve been working on new songs, though. Here’s a cool one off their 2007 release, Cold & Kind.
Gia Margaret introduced me to the music of Cale Tyson, a few weeks back. Definitely a big fan of his latest EP, Narcissist.
I randomly discovered The Jungle Giants, through an Instagram ad and am blown away by their 2017 release, Quiet Ferocity. Thankfully, the ad was promoting their upcoming Chicago show at Schubas, on 5/25, which I will definitely be attending.

Anxiously awaiting the announcement of a new Bombay Bicycle Club album. Here’s an old favorite.
