WHAT WE’VE BEEN JAMMING TO
ISSUE #52 / march 21, 2019
Glitter and Blood
Sweltering, queer, heart-beat R&B from Chicago’s SuperKnova. Searing guitars kiss, nip, and slap at back-talking synths over a billow of foggy, puckering beats. A hot jam to get you through the cool opening weeks of spring.
SuperKnova will grace the stage at Cafe Mustache on March 29th with Ovef Ow and Blackglass. Show starts a 9pm. No cover!
He doesn’t perform much and we couldn’t find any dates outside the U.K.
Haunted Items #1 & #2
Straight from the mind of Greta Kline, the brainchild of Frankie Cosmos, comes four new tunes released in classic single style with an A and B side- one last week and another this week. Haunted Items #1 and #2 are simple tunes in the typical, observational Frankie Cosmos mold which means they are damn good!
Currently gearing up for a short spring Europe run, we wouldn’t be surprised to see them appear on a bill in Chicago this summer.
So far there are no summer dates for Twin Shadow in Chicago.
He’s hitting Northerly Island with local standout Noname and Thundercat on June 4th. Tix are $39.50 and up.
Lincoln Hall is hosting them as they open for Priests on April 22nd. Tix are only $15 for these two awesome acts!
What a lineup! They are headlining a show at The Metro on August 17th with The Bronx, Swingin’ Utters, and The Bar Stool Preachers in support! Tix are $28.50.
She’ll be at Lollapalooza this summer. Tix just went on sale this week!
Joan As Police Woman
What A World
A societal condemning tune from Joan Wasser who has been putting out her brand of indie soul as Joan As Police Woman since 2006. “What A World” finds her torn between her emotions and the outside world- a position she has often found herself reflecting on. Part of JOANTHOLOGY, a triple LP compilation album set to drop on May 24th.
None of her tour dates so far this year are bringing her to the U.S.
King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard
Fishing For Fishies
A subdued psych-folker of a tune from the Australian rockers who took the world by storm with Nonagon Infinity in ‘16 and Murder of the Universe in ‘17. “Fishing For Fishies” is the title track of King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard’s new record due out April 26th.
They are swinging through Aragon Ballroom on August 24th. Tix run $35.
It doesn’t look like the Nordic rocker is hitting the states anytime soon.
