Memory Bells change their course on new single "Day at a Time"

A little patience always comes a long way. It's not the most novel mantra for a song, but sometimes it's about how much conviction you put into it. And in the case of indie rock quartet Memory Bells, formerly known as Watch for Horses, they take that confidence to towering heights with an open-hearted embrace. Sporting an infectious jangle hook, their latest single, "Day at a Time," reaches anthemic territory with a tuneful, richly melodic sound. But the band keep it simple, opting to level its passionate chorus without succumbing into any cloying, heart-on-sleeve trappings.

 Memory Bells plan to release a series of singles, leading up to the release of their debut EP later this summer. Catch them at The Slidebar Rock N Roll Kitchen on July 10. Juan Rodríguez


Seasalt "Kool Girl"

Indie Pop quartet Seasalt released their debut EP, “Tea Party for Teens”, back in May, and are currently participating in the Suburban Chicago’s Got Talent Contest. The EP’s lead single is the extremely catching “Kool Girl”, which I had the pleasure of seeing them perform live in St. Charles this past weekend. The song is an instant summer classic and the band had the crowd invovled from the first note. They should be moving to Top 15 and performing for the judges again on July 29th. 

Seasalt is the work of Jon O'Brien, Becky Sargeant, Kayla Seeber and Drew Zaremba.

You can also catch Seasalt opening for Sponge (Yes, that Sponge!) on August 24th at RocHaus in West Dundee.


New Track: "Gaslight Anthem (The Song Not The Band)" - Thin Lips

Thin Lips have another endearing new single to share with us from their forthcoming full-length album Chosen Family. The beloved, former Dangerous Ponies members just dropped the humorously titled, "Gaslight Anthem (The Song Not The Band)," which also features backing vocals from local music pals Frances Quinlan (Hop Along), Brendan Lukens (Modern Baseball), and Zoe Reynolds (Kississippi). The LP is due out on July 27 via Philly's own Lame-O Records. Chrissy Tashjian, Mikey Tashjian, and Kyle Pulley are currently on tour with Hop Along, and will be back home for a sold-out show with Japandroid on Tuesday, July 24 at Boot & Saddle. If you missed out on tix for that evening, don't sleep on next month's performance with Slaughter Beach, Dog on Saturday, August 25 at PhilaMOCA. (Photo by Scott Troyan)
