Airiel
Airiel
Molten Young Lovers is the title of Airiel's upcoming LP, the first since 2007's The Battle of Sealand. Previously, the group released the Kid Games EP on Shelflife, as well as the (now sold out) Winks & Kisses vinyl set. Unlike the Kid Games EP, these songs were written and developed in live settings before recording them in the studio, calling to the strengths of each band member's creative technique. Utilizing a number of Chicago studios, producer Adam Stilson helped to shape the material into the classic Airiel that you know and love-it's loud, it's pretty, and you can dance to it.
Whimsical
Whimsical
Whimsical was originally a Shoegaze / Dream Pop band from Northwest Indiana from '99-'05. They released one demo cd, one full length album called Setting Suns are Semi-Circles on Seraph Records, and one single. The band was 90% done with recording their 2nd full length album in the beginning of '05 when the band ended.
Panda Riot
Panda Riot
Panda Riot formed in Philadelphia while Brian Cook and Rebecca Scott were working on some short films. Soundtracks turned into songs and Panda Riot was born. They picked up a drum machine, a couple of guitars, and the result was She Dares All Things, a collection of bedroom recorded songs. A move to Chicago saw the addition of Justin Cheng on Bass and Jose Rodriguez on Aux percussion. Last year they dropped the Far and Near Ep. This year they are currently working on a new record entitled Northern Automatic Music.
New Canyons
New Canyons
Chicago's NEW CANYONS deliver their extremely likeable take on melodramatic, icy synth pop. The duo has been dominating the Windy City since their album, Everyone is Dark (too true). A little electronic mixed with a little shoegaze.
Astrobrite
Astrobrite
The Chicago-based shoegaze band, Astrobrite, was founded by Scott Cortez. The band incorporates pop-melodies and ethereal vocals over a jet engine roar of sound. Their latest album was the full-length Deluxer released by Vinyl Junkie (Tokyo) in 2015. Current members include Sophie Leigh and Sarah Sterling. The group recently toured Japan. They are working on new music.
Tambourina
Tambourina
TAMBOURINA dream pop band featuring members of glowfriends, Overly Polite Tornadoes and Vida Eterna. Dance with us.
Bow & Spear
Bow & Spear
From Chicago. Nice People. Loud Music. Friends Forever. Whatever.
Lightfoils
Lightfoils
Hazy soundscapes, ringing guitar, icy synth, feather-light vocals, and actual compelling tunes, Lightfoils use Hierarchy to serve notice: their EP was no fluke, and they will no longer be ignored. If you’re new to Lightfoils, drop the needle on “Diastolic”, “Last One”, or the strangely compelling “alovetodestroy” and you’ll begin to understand what all the fuss is about. But there’s more than just three tracks to this album. Once you get inside, it’s a beautifully rich and textured world to explore.
