Emergency! Get Randy Mantooth on your stereo, stat! Three friends, two brothers, and one enormous sound sum up the vital information on this Chicago power trio of indie rock that comes from the acclaimed power pop band Otter Petter.

Michael Pritchard (otter petter) writes tunes on his guitar that cut as clean as a scalpel. Nate Lindsey (highplanes) on bass and William Pritchard (otter petter) on drums complete the triangulation of rock ‘n’ roll triage.
The Thin Cherries
The Thin Cherries
Chicago’s The Thin Cherries is the newest musical project founded by scene vets Steven Delisi and Mark Lofgren.

Delisi is a musician and songwriter with a background in theater and film production. His former band, Phenomenal Cat, blended his pop/punk sensibilities with experimental music and the Russian folk influences of his band mates.

Songwriter/musician Lofgren is one of the founders of psychedelic pop/rock mainstays The Luck of Eden Hall, who have toured Europe and released music on a variety of independent labels, including Headspin Records and Fruits de Mer Records. In 2014 he released his solo debut, The Past Perfect.

In 2015, Delisi approached Lofgren, who shares his love for bands like Blur, the Replacements and the Smiths, to collaborate on a recorded project that emphasizes good songwriting

In the spring of 2016, The Thin Cherries emerged with the addition of multi-instrumentalist Darren Shepherd and drummer Gabriel Palomo. Later, they welcomed the addition of Birdie Soti on Keyboards & synths.

Collaboration at their California Station studio in Logan Square led to the initial recordings for The Thin Cherries’ debut album, due to be released in spring of 2017.
King Mixer
King Mixer
King Mixer is both musical ensemble and performing alias of Chicago singer/songwriter Eric Howell. LP studio guests feature members of Smoking Popes, NRBQ, BoDeans and Off Broadway. At a moment when guitar bands are fighting for a place in modern music, King Mixer offers up purposeful schizophrenic sounds which become harder to pin down with each genre-defying turn. A power pop everything bag, with a horn section!
