Church Booty
Church Booty
With catchy melodies and grooves that can’t help but be danced to, Church Booty delivers a unique musical experience born from their wide range of influences. Based in Chicago, the band consistently entertains crowds with high-energy performances that highlight their musical versatility and strong chemistry. Guided by tight arrangements and skillful improvisations, the bar is set at a high musical standard that works both the brain and the booty. With friendships rooted long before the band's inception, Church Booty is a family of musicians that are just as close off the stage. Between the vocals of Mariel Fechik, the keyboard connection of Joe Meland and Rob Osiol, Noah Gehrmann's guitar shredding, the groove between bassist Erik Opland and drummer Tom Kelly, and the tight horn arrangements laid down by Dan Hinze (saxophone) and company, each member comes together for a whole greater than the sum of its parts. Following the release of debut album Turn The Other Cheek in the fall of 2015, the band gained recognition for a sound encompassing a unique blend of pop, soul, jazz, rock, R&B, and whatever else inspires them. They continue to work on new material, with plans for a new release in 2017.
Faintlife
In a desert shadow of cityscapes and Midwest dreams, three caged children found themselves in a mathematical wave of wet tar. The collision of volcano steam and needles dragging across blank stitching allowed for a moment of transcending, simple communication systems. Faintlife's music fuses together like a spinning top floating between obstacles; gently bouncing between dilated ears and elates the inquisitive soul. The overwhelming feeling of fluid brain synapses and osmosis can be discovered with every breath and pause. It's funny and thrilling such as a ruffled birds nest you found on the edge of adolescence. The electric feeling you get from watching lightning on the back porch can not compare to damp air drifting through your cheap, creaky apartment. It's a secret laughter shared between grasps at reality. The delicate dew that boils off sweet grass trickles through every tone found on UV, their debut LP and Ever Was, their sophomore LP released February 24.
Tara Terra
Tara Terra
Tara Terra, indie rock band from Chicago and Champaign, IL, doesn’t settle down. Since their debut album “Daughter” in 2014, they’ve toured the U.S. twice, appeared on Audiotree Live, and played consistently packed shows in their home cities. Their unique mix of dynamic guitar textures and eclectic pop vocals (think Maggie Rogers or Phox) is just the beginning, with a new album coming your way in 2017. For now, catch their infectious indie vibes through their Daytrotter session (via Paste Magazine), The Huffington Post, Do 312, and Daytrotter’s Top 100 Songs.
