February 2012

Caves

This band has my name written all over them. They’re called Caves. I live in a house called The Cave Bear Cave. Their album is called “When You Were Partying, I Was Dying.” I hate when other people have fun. Three of the four songs on the album are numbers. I love numbers. This band is great!

Cut Teeth

Chicago Raw Rock

Cut Teeth have an album on Bandcamp called “Televandalism”. It was released just a couple weeks ago, and it’s totally solid. They’re playing at the Beat Kitchen on February 24th, and you should totally go check them out!

Dowsing

I don’t know who Maxwell is, but the track “Maxwell” seems really serious.

Dowsing thinks they can beat me at Monopoly. That’s where they’re wrong. Dowsing, I challenge you to a game of monopoly. Help my band get a show in Chicago in May, and I’ll show you how to play board games.

This music is really good! They tagged it as pop, indie, and emo. So, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect, but it’s really better than most of my concepts of those genres. Erik Czaja, Gooey Fame, Delia Hornik, and Marcus Nuccio have some of the craziest names I’ve heard in a while, and they’re making really honest rock and roll.
