Listen Up: Chicago

May 10, 2011

It’s always great to hear local acts that not only turn the heads of city spectators, but the national eye as well.  Just don’t sell out, that’s when you start sucking (I’m looking at you Kings of Leon and unfortunately because of your last album, Lupe Fiasco.  Although Lupe has time to redeem himself)

Well, I recently ran across a Chicago act entitled, Kids these Days, and was subsequently blown away.  With a 6 song EP to their name, it was interesting to see these guys get the nod for Lollapalooza this summer, but nevertheless count me as excited.  Part hip-hop, part neo-soul, part jazz, this 7 piece collective has played music with more feeling and talent in their first 10ish songs then some bands play in their entire career.  Check out songs Darling and My Days below. (click to play or ‘right click save as’ to keep)
