Psychedelica might be the new posh thing to emerge in 2009. Only reason why I say that is because of the mass amount of hype surrounding Animal Collective, and the recent 9.6 rating they got on Pitchfork (nobody has scored that high since The Arcade Fire back in 2004). And when a band creates sounds comparable post OK Computer Radiohead, Sebastian Tellier, and Explosions in the Sky sans 20 minute track lengths... you have a good thing going.
Chicago outfit Loyal Divide do just that, and they're playing a gig at Subterranean in Wicker Park to help promote their new Labrador EP. The show is Wednesday the 14th with a 9pm kickoff. They were recently featured on RCRD LBL (so you know they're good), and I'll be sharing their title track with you today.
01 Young BladesHelp out some local flavor by buying their album [here] and seeing their show at SubT. Very much looking forward to witnessing these guys make all this noise live on stage. It will be mesmerizing to say the least.
