BRIGHTER ARROWS (ex members of Phoenix Bodies, Lautrec and Mans)
Brighter Arrows play post-punk, post-hardcore, post-emo that seems to encapsulate the best parts of each sub-genre while maintaining a freshness and personality all it's own. In the vein of Sunny Day Real Estate, Pinback, and Casket Lottery.
Alta are a band that met, became a band and now play shows. They will be a band for a indeterminable amount of time.
Wedding Dress is the songwriting vehicle for a few old friends. At the heart of their home recordings is a distant cousin to country music, somber and reflective. But it can also be unpredictable, venturing out into atmospheric tangents and garage rock fits.
"The Chicago outfit Ghastly Menace may sound like a dangerous and motley crew, but the name belies the band’s indie-pop slant. Their songs are crunchy, but delicate – lo-fi indie pop with a little bit of a bite in it."
-Eight Forty-Eight on Chicago Public Radio
