Go to the old Top 300 charts



Malci "Papaya!"

Malci released his latest album, Papaya!, this week. This is experimental Hip Hop that blends jazz, funk, found sounds, and more while creating complex beats to support Malci’s inventive lyrics.

This is the follow-up to Malci’s 2017 album, Do You Know Yourself, and a fine example of just how sonically diverse Hip Hop is in 2019.

You can catch Malci at Schubas on June 2nd with Jordanna and Little Church.


Spencer Radcliffe & Everyone Else “Bloodletting"

Spencer Radcliffe & Everyone Else are preparing to release their latest album, Hot Spring, on May 17th via Run For Cover. You can currently stream the LP’s first two singles “Bloodletting” and “Here Comes The Snow” below.

“Everyone Else” is Ben Austin (Cello), Grant Engstrom (Lead Guitar), Pat Lyons (Pedal Steel), Tina Scarpello (Vocals), and Jack Schemenauer (Percussion).

On the latest single, “Bloodletting”, the steel guitar of Lyons almost steels the show, driving the band’s sound past Americana into near Alt-Country territory. Every moment is soul searching bliss, and a perfect dim barroom soundtrack.

Zigtebra “Canyon"

Dream Pop duo Zigtebra released a new single and video called “Canyon” this week. This is the first single from their forthcoming EP which is due out this Fall.

Zigtebra is the work of Emily Rose and Joe Zeph, and this single follows-up their 2018 debut LP, Major Crush.


The Phantom Broadcast

The Phantom Broadcast released their latest album, Antiquities, Volume 1, last week. This is more of a collective of musicians than a band with a sound the truly defies classification. There are elements of Rock, Metal, Jazz, and classical music as the group creates beauty , harmony, and melody out of what feels like could fall into chaos at any moment.

This is the work of Evan Opitz (Vocals, Electric Guitar, Fender Rhodes, Toy Piano, Synths), Dave Hollis (Vocals, Electric/Acoustic Guitars, Synths), Lucy Little (Vocals, Violin), Nick Soria (Bass, Vocals), and Colin Rambert (Drums/Percussion).

Still + Storm “The Dark"

Dark Electro-Pop duo Still + Storm released their latest EP, “The Dark”, last week via Mstatement. This is the work of Husband and Wife Rachel and Dave Raymond. Dave has been a mainstay in Chicago for years with bands like Given Names and Hidden Hospitals and runs the Mstatement label.
