Ryley Walker
"All Kinds Of You
"
mp3

The debut album, All Kinds of You, from Ryley Walker is impressive in its thoughtful restraint and intimate sounds and lyrics. Walker has spent years in Chicago's noise scene, but this album is a near folk masterpiece. Walker shows skill in guitar playing, singing, and writing though the album. The album opens with the track that Walker is currently known for "The West Wind". It is a solemn journey that Walker present in a video last Fall. The production value of the album shines through on a track like "Twin Oaks pt. 1" where the sounds builds into a lush down home party complete with drums, strips, and guitar picking. All Kinds of You (Tompkins Square, April 15th) presents and old soul, a journeyman in the form of this talented 24 year old singer/songwriter.

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.
