From our Open Blog: photo sans nom

aria Photo, alias photo sans nom (roughly translated: photo without a name) will be the first to tell you that she is not a singer-songwriter. Though the French bent is an inspiration of the 60’s YeYe movement - and a pun on her surname - this girl is unfamiliar in any archetypal sense. Actually turning down gigs that would perpetuate stereotypes, Maria has spent over a year and a half crafting a layered mini-lp of songs, for which she overdubs a majority of the tracks.

At once it is a tongue-in-cheek nod to the electronic music that has romantically captured her by night and at the next turn it is the sobering alarm of garage rock that wakes the day. A thread of authenticity holds this genre-less masterwork together. Miss Photo makes no apologies for her style-hopping ways. At the end of the day you will discover her faithful voice through many lenses. This is not a mix-tape. Her name may be pseudo, but rest assured she is nothing short of genuine and she’s only just begun.



A couple of weeks ago we brought you the news of the new album from Unicycle Loves You, Mirror Mirror being released this September. Now we have a track from that album called “Justine”. The video for “Justine” was released a year ago and was directed by Athony Dixon.

The release of Mirror Mirror will be celebrated at Schubas on Sept. 11th with The Nurse’s Novels and Village.


From our Open Blog: Loose Lips Sink Ships / Victor Villarreal

Chicago indie rock veteran/guitar virtuoso Victor Villarreal (Cap'n Jazz, Owls, Ghosts and Vodka) and DeKalb, IL's math rock wunderkids Loose Lips Sink Ships are gearing up for the pressing of a split 7" record, entitled Eating Happens. The record is set for release August 27th on Chicago newcomers Whaleplane Records. Eating Happens is Villarreal's second release under his own name (the first being 2009's Alive), and is Loose Lips Sink Ships' second 7" record on Whaleplane, a label that got its start in the college town of Fredonia, NY. The record features a track from each artist, Loose Lips contribute the knotty, spastic "Sarah Palin's Parasailing" and Victor offers up a fingerpicked folk song entitled "Prophesying Hypothesis." The record is a limited edition item (just 500 hand numbered copies are to be released this August) and is available for preorder now.

Preordering the record not only includes immediate download of this album, it also ensures that it will be shipped out before the release date. A free stream of both tracks is available, as well, at Loose Lips' webstore.
