WHAT WE’VE BEEN JAMMING TO
ISSUE #50 / march 7, 2019
One of our favorite local acts dropped this little baby this week along with a record announcement. Dehd is releasing Water on May 10th, and we just can’t wait for what is sure to be a killer album. Emily Kempf, Jason Balla, and Eric McGrady have been capturing imaginations for years with their stripped down indie rock, and “Lucky” is more of the same signature jangle rock sound.
You can catch them this Saturday at The Hideout’s SXSW send off, see our News and Notes section for more info. And just announced they will have a record release party at The Empty Bottle on May 10th. Tix are only $10. Get em before they sell out!
They are off to SXSW next week but are set to play an Anchr Magazine Showcase with Varsity, Rookie and Stuyedeyed “In the Round” at Thalia Hall on March 22nd. Tix are a measly $12!
Unfortunately their tour doesn’t bring them to Chicago but Margaret is opening for Hand Habits at The Hideout on April 4th. Tix are $12.
Rich Jones is appearing at the Cactus Club in Milwaukee on March 15th. $10 cover.
The O’My’s are playing SXSW next week but don’t have any Chicago shows on the horizon.
Kero Kero Bonito
Swimming / The Open Road
A new single from sparkling London garage-pop dance trio Kero Kero Bonito washed ashore this week. Side-A “Swimming,” is a dreamy, sun-kissed fantasy sandcastle, originally built on the southern shore of 2018’s phenomenal Time ‘n’ Space and transported here without a grain of sand out of place. It’s the B-side where things really start to get interesting... “The Open Road” is a previously unreleased stretch of lo-fi nostalgia fuel that is begging for its own Instagram filter. Be sure to add both tracks to your next road-trips playlist. Kero Kero Bon Voyage! Until we meet again!
