On the 69th day the devil created Atomic Love, and it was good.
LE YIKES SURF CLUB (ex Dirty Tactics)
“It’s a hodgepodge of sounds with a complicated backstory, but the end result is just staggering with infectious tunes that will keep you humming for days on end. Not every song features the surf and Latino merger, but when it does, there are melodies and hooks that would make even Pixies guitarist Joey Santiago envious.”- (New Noise Magazine 2014)
“Nice mix of surf sensibilities (and you thought it was just a clever name) with mid-tempo punk not out of step with early ‘80s beach punk and more modern garage rock, steeped in reverb and catchy hooks.” – (Razorcake
Slipping through the cracks of the midwestern walls of Chicago is a haze of psychedelia, blues-infused riffs, and garage-dwelling metal induced by Blue Dream.
FURR is George Coutretsis and Ryan Quilty. Born out of a love for all things heavy and loud. We like our whiskey cheap and our High Life’s cold.
DJ PAUL CHERRY
Paul Cherewick, monikered Paul Cherry, came up during Chicago’s garage rock golden age of 2014. Despite being in the thick of the DIY scene with up and coming bands such as Twin Peaks and The Lemons, Paul would abandon the all too familiar lofi rock sound of his first EP “on Top” and spend the next 2 years exploring the nuances of jazz and pop, finding his footing with a new sound. Paul Cherry has completely reinvented himself on his upcoming LP, Flavour. The first single, “Like Yesterday” sets the tone for the record as a brilliantly written, mid-tempo pop ballad. It would fit nicely as a modern addition to Paul McCartney’s “Ram” or Todd Rundgren’s “Something/Anything,” or even Player’s “Baby Come Back.” Paul Cherry crafts melodies on Flavour that sit at the intersection of 1970s yacht rock and Ariel Pink’s lo-fi dream pop. Lyrically, Cherry touches upon millennial culture with references to love in the modern age, phone culture, and giving a conceptually new light-hearted twist to age old old themes of love lost, missed connections and polar political climates.
