Giant System

Giant System Chicago is quickly documenting the Chicago music scene and their latest film features Love Of Everything. I just have to say that Elisse La Roche is incredible in every way. The track they are performing is called "Fear of Missing Out". Giant Systems' past projects include Aleks and The Drummer, White/Light, Black Math, and Locks. I can wait to see what is next.

Love of Everything will be playing on April 17th (Record Store Day) at Reckless Records in the Loop at 1pm.


Weekly Feature #200b: North Highlands - Live at Union Hall, 04.15

Gathered around a table at Macri Park, the five amiable members of North Highlands reflect on their whirlwind experience since the band’s inception in May. At their three-month mark, they had written and recorded a six-song EP that they have likened to a Chili’s sample starter platter for its eclectic nature. By October, they booked an unofficial CMJ show that drew a mesmerized crowd, who raved about it seconds later, thanks to the Internet. In December, they played an uncomfortably packed show at the Cake Shop and acquired a van to gear up for a future tour. - Read Nancy Chow's interview with the band here.


Weekly Feature #200a: Beach Fossils - live at Deli Best of NYC Fest, 05.13

Dustin Payseur’s cloudy voice over his soft surfer rock guitar is classic. Classic in the sense that it transcends any sort of trendy indie music movement that at this point has become tired and formulaic. Beach Fossils is a refreshing revisit to the lo-fi quality music of 60s rock. The record could easily be a found treasure from your father’s old stored away box of vinyls. The so cal vibe mixes well with Dustin’s distorted vocals and makes for sincere, oft sad songs that remain lively with a pinch of pop. - Read Chloe Schildhause's interview with the band here. Beach Fossils will headline the Deli's Best of NYC Fest show at Brooklyn Bowl on Thursday May 13.
