posted by Oscar May 24, 2016

One of our favorite Chicago bands, Whitney have released their new single”No Matter Where We Go” and its accompanying video. The visuals were directed by Alan Del Rio Ortiz and in it we see clips of couples in a sweet embrace in the most intimate of settings, cut in with shots of the band performing the upbeat jam. Also, is that Marrow’s Macie Stewart and Lane Beckstrom I spot here?

Their new album Light Upon the Lake will come out next week June 3, on Secretly Canadian.

Whitney will embark on their first major U.S. headline tour this summer in support of Light Upon the Lake. A full list of dates is below with more to be announced soon. Continue Reading

posted by Oscar May 8, 2013

Fellow Chicagoans, Smith Westerns, have released their new video for “Varsity” on Pitchforktv. Chicago music must be under the influence of acid with this new video featuring some trippy imagery while showing a young couple in love doing their thing, all set to the sweet melody of the track.

“Varsity” will appear on the band’s forthcoming LP, Soft Will, due June 25 through Mom + Pop.
