Chicago Music Video: Jude Shuma

jude shumaJude Shuma released a video for his song “Reflection” about 2 weeks ago on Earmilk, but I just caught it so wanted to share. Another prime example of the really great videos being made for Chicago’s music.


I first saw Jude Shuma at the Bottle, playing before whoever I was there to see. They were on my radar for a while, and I reallllly dug their set. This video and song does a great job of capturing the psychedelic sound they bring. Hit play & dig in, and click the pic for the Facebook.

Lucille Furs’ Record Release Tonight!

lucille fursThese guys entered my ‘Top 5 Local Bands’ list the first time I saw them. I’ve been a fan since day one, and waiting for this record ever since. FINALLY, it’s here, and they’re celebrating with a release show tonight at Virgin Hotels.


Their self-titled, debut album is out as of today. You can check the whole thing out on Spotify, and included below is their recently released video for the track “Our Lady of Perpetual Frustration”. If you’re not already familiar, give ’em a whirl.



Presented by The Minimal Beat & Virgin Hotels, this is definitely where I’ll be tonight. The show is FREE but subject to capacity, so be sure to get there early! Good news is the entire night of sound should be great, with Chicago’s Constantine and Peoria’s The Golden Fleece on the bill, and Chicago’s DJ Psychedalex spinning tunes throughout.

Chicago Music Video: Absolutely Not

absolutely notChicago’s Absolutely Not released a video for their track “Strictly Top” and it’s fantastic for several reasons. The song is great, it’s from a band that’s always been fun, this video is EVEN MORE fun, it features some wonderful folks from around the scene, and it’s message leans as a “humorous ‘Don’t judge me!’ declaration of LGBTQ sexuality in 2017.”
NPR’s featuring the video alongside a slew of positive words, so check that out too. THEN, go see ’em live at the Bottle for their record release show on 7/29.
