Courtesy @ The Hideout

Courtesy recently released their third album, Hey, via Moon Glyph. This is the follow-up to 20015’s Slow Bruise, and the trio’s first release since adding Doug Malone.

 

Below is the NSFW video for the album’s title track. It demonstrates the band unique blend of electronics, hushed vocal harmonies, and Psychedelic funk.

Courtesy will celebrate the new album on May 12th at The Hideout with Malci and SPVD (Josh Condon from Glyders).

   

Towkio "Morning View"

Towkio has really out done himself with the unbelievable new video for “Morning View”. The video was shot at the Los Angeles YouTube Space and directed by Todd Barrett. The track is taken from his recently released LP, WWW, and features beautiful vocals from SZA.

   

Local H "Innocents"

Local H released a new single this week called “Innocents (Edited for Television)”. It is unclear if this is part of a new album or just a one off, but regardless it is great to have Local H back. This follows-up the band’s Live In Europe album, which was released back in February, and is the first new music from the band since 2015’s Hey, Killer.

Local H is currently on tour with Everclear and Marcy Playground, and will be near Chicago in Joliet at The Forge on June 16th.

   

Andy Pratt "Lincoln Avenue"

Andy Pratt is releasing his sophomore EP, "Further Disruption", on May 18th and recently released the EP’s lead track “Lincoln Avenue”. The five songs on this EP were record at Electrical Audio with Steve Albini in 2016 as part of Pratt’s session for his 2017 debut LP, Horizon Disrupted.

   

Dos Santos "Logos"

Dos Santos announced that their full-length debut album, Logos, will be released on June 15th via International Anthem today. Dos Santos has been honing their sound around Chicago for the last 5 years blending Jazz, Psych Rock, Pop, Cumbia, and more.

Last month the band released two singles, “Logos” and “Manos Ajenas (Touch You Every Day)”, from the LP, but officially announced the LP today. They have also released a new track, “Caminante”, which translates to “Walker” and is a perfect example of where this genre-blending band is today.

You can help Dos Santos celebrate the release of Logos on June 14th at Sleeping Village with Junius Paul.
