Go to the old Top 300 charts



Jackson Bailey "Theories"

Jackson Bailey is a new band in town, forming last year and now releasing their debut ep, Theories. The group is fronted by PJ Anderson and also contains Steven Gillis (Filter) as drummer. The band plays a very vanilla brand of Americana pop in similar vein of Hootie & The Blowfish. What redeems the project are Anderson's earnest lyrics. The five track ep is a journey in love and loss and the conflicts in between. Is that enough to redeem the project? Possibly, I'll let you decide. You can stream three of the tracks on the ep at bandcamp.

Jackson Bailey will celebrate the release of Theories on April 8th at The Bottom Lounge with Molehill, Facing Winter and Nathan Kalish & The Wildfire.


2011 Lujo Records Sampler

Lujo Records has released their 2011 sampler to give fans a taste of what's coming out this year from the label. It features tracks from Chicago band's Yourself and The Air (Who’s Who In The Zoo ep coming soon), A Lull (debut album Confetti coming April 12th), and Baby Teeth. The track from Baby Teeth is from their free ep Boss which was released back in January.

A Lull and Yourself and The Air are performing at Schubas on April 22nd.


Pillars & Tongues Live

The trio of Pillars & Tongues create music that is really intended to be experienced live. The albums are great, but when witnessed live they really expand and transform the sound. Over the last couple of month the band has released three live sessions that you need to check out. We mentioned their Daytrotter session when it came out, but they have also released a session with Dublab, and a Antilog Session live at the 2640 Collective. All three sessions feature new material, and the band just announced that they will be releasing their latest album The Pass and Crossings in May. through Empty Cellar Records.


Project Film @ Beat Kitchen

Project Film is continuing to build on the success of their debut album which was recently released by Tandem Shop. They recently opened for Island of The Misfit Toys at Schubas, see video above, and they will be performing on March 31st at Beat Kitchen with The Window Theatre, JT Royster, and Minnesota's The ACB's.


Lubriphonic Brings the Funk

If you are looking for some hard funk and big soul look no further then the Septet Lubriphonic. The band released their latest album, The Gig Is On back in December, but just released a live album for free through bandcamp. The album was record in New Orleans at Tipitina's during Mardi Gras.

Lubriphonic will be performing at Double Door on April 1st.
