SONG OF THE DAY Stuck – The Punisher
Listening to this band for the first time the other day, I’d anticipated that they were going to be a British outfit, but Suck are actually Chicago-based. Formed in 2018 with a tight post-punk ethic driving them forward, band members … Continue reading
SONG OF THE DAY Jeff Parker – Go Away
There is so much more to today’s artist than a man with a desire to mix jazz with break beats, but there is also a wealth of information out there and instead of me regurgitating that, I’ll just point you … Continue reading
SONG OF THE DAY The Microphone Misfitz – Black Paranoia Feat. Fury
Six years ago Chicago’s Microphone Misfitz launched their Escape From Babylon series. The 2nd volume followed three years later in 2015 and in February this year came the third instalment: 15 more tracks digging even deeper into social and political issues. This … Continue reading
SONG OF THE DAY The Potted Palm – My House Of Grass
Chicago’s Numero group are one of those labels that I dream of working for! They specialise in creating compilations of previously released (and often obscure) recorded material, reissuing original albums, whilst dedicating all of their time to researching and unearthing … Continue reading
SONG OF THE DAY Ovef Ow – Working Girl
This track has something warming and attractive about it right from the start! As the guitar strums a gentle melody and soft vocals tunefully hum into relaxed chords, you instantly get a feeling that something nice is about to happen! … Continue reading
SONG OF THE DAY Born Days – Analogue
I like it when a song really stops you in your tracks and hits you in the face with something good, but sometimes the subtle slow-burners can be just as effective and this is true of today’s song. Upcoming singer-songwriter … Continue reading

Earlier this month Chicago rapper Jayson Jenkins, aka Mick Jenkins, announced the release of his new album, ‘The Healing Component.’ Due this September via his Free Nation label, the album’s first shared track is titled ‘Drowning,’ a collaboration between Jenkins and … Continue reading
SONG OF THE DAY Tiny Topsy – Just a Little Bit
I picked this little gem out of a playlist I’d compiled for myself a little while ago, I love it! I love the call and response style vocals and I simply adore the big, big voice of Tiny Topsy. Active … Continue reading
SONG OF THE DAY Gel Set – I’ll Close My Eyes
It’s a bit ‘zappy’, a bit funky and it’s totally stripped back. Think ray gun sound effects meets cool understated beats, combine that with cosmic synths, the cool vocals of Laura Callier and here emerges the minimalist sound of Chicago-based … Continue reading
SONG OF THE DAY Little Ann – Sweep it out in the Shed
Today’s song comes from an artist whose recognition was a long, long time coming!.. Originally from Chicago, “Little Ann” Bridgeforth was born and bred a singer, she sang at her cousin’s club, Michelle’s Playroom and in 1969 recorded her first … Continue reading
