Dead Native
"Dead Native
"
mp3

Dead Native's self-titled sophomore album has an overall cosmic feel starting with the cover but building through out in the sound. The band blends echoing elements of psych rock, shoegaze, mototik, and pop. There is also a blues under current, but it is toned down from their 2013 debut, Keep It Strange". The adventure on the new album builds through out the tracks, but the most effective cosmic track has to be "Traveling". The 9 minute epic space journey seems built to put anyone into orbit. It is followed up by the one of the heavier tracks, "Clean Kill", that trudges through muddy fields of throbbing guitars. The album closes with an anthemic flourish with "Respite" with all instruments soaring to a close. This may or may not be a concept album, but it does truly feel like a complete listen that was meant to be played track by track. Dead Native's new album will be released on Sept. 2nd.

Fletcher @ Beat Kitchen

Fletcher @ Beat Kitchen

The three-piece indie rock trio Fletcher are not just our current Band of the Month, but they are also the headlining band at Beat Kitchen tomorrow night, Nov. 8th. The band just released their debut self-titled EP and have a richer history than you might expect. The trio consists of brothers Oscar and Harvey Baker and Tom Fry. The brothers are originally from London and you hear the British rock influences in their sound. It is a somewhat unique approach for a Chicago-based band.

You can stream the band's ep on their soundcloud page, and don't forget to check them out at Beat Kitchen on Nov. 8th with Huntsmen, Vaudevileins, and Bryn Rich.
