FRANKIE ROSE has quite a reputation for her minimal, MAUREEN TUCKER-like beats and iconic presence in buzz bands CRYSTAL STILTS, DUM DUM GIRLS and VIVIAN GIRLS. With her newest solo record, Interstellar out this year via Slumberland, FRANKIE has departed from the lo-fi garage, reverb-drenched SPECTOR-sound and instead embraced an icy blend of buffered beats, cascading chords and steely synths. It’s an electro-inspired indie-rock gem that Pitchfork hailed in their BNM review, stating ROSE “transports us further and takes us higher than she ever could have as the drummer of an indie pop revivalist band.”

Combining indie pop with dreamy guitars and textural synths, SUBURBAN LIVING, the solo recording project of WESLEY BUNCH is due to release a sophomore EP, Give Up, this spring.  Since the inception of the Norfolk, VA-based project, BUNCH has recruited buddies to help bring the EP recordings to life.  Creating a sound that truly embodies the simple ennui and hopeful dreaming of the bands’ name, we can’t think of a better time of year to welcome these chill, gazey youngins to Chicago.

    Pop

    As a founding member, songwriter, instrumentalist and vocalist in Vivian Girls and drummer and occasional vocalist in Crystal Stilts, Frankie Rose has been an integral part of two of the most highly acclaimed and influential groups to come out of Brooklyn’s still-vital music scene in the past several years. Her solo project not only reflects the aesthetic
    earmarks of both those groups, but it also reveals her as a fully-formed artist in her own right. 

    Ms. Rose’s music is haunted by the ghosts of 60s girl group, Brill Building, and 80s and 90s noise pop in equal measure. It’s a spooky, lovely sound — Frankie’s ethereal yet affectation-free voice swirling in a sea of church-like harmonies over a bed of tambourines, bells, and propulsive drumming. Recalling in spirit such groups as The Aislers Set and Black Tambourine, Frankie’s music is both timeless and immediate, both deeply personal and completely universal.

    Here's to a blinding light we thought we had lost, New Canyons. Andrew Marrah and Adam Stilson are a duo who have dug there way out of the trenches and onto higher ground. These members have been in a handful of great Michigan bands. Struggling to keep their groups together, they decided not to. New Canyons are on their own terms with something completely different to bring to the table.

    "NEW CANYONS members Adam Stilson and Andrew Marrah previously found voice with Lansing-based band VEGA, whose moody atmospherics left plenty of room for powerful post-punk dynamics. NEW CANYONS explores a more insular electronic territory that still delivers cathartic emotional content. Rumor has it they are soon to ship off for a certain major city in Illinois."-Scene Metrospace
