Gone Sugar Die cover Days Go by Dirty Vegas

 photo GoneSugarDie_zpstqmzsdvn.jpg

Cheeky, new backyard video concept by “dirt-pop” band Gone Sugar Die covering the Dirty Vegas classic “Days Go By.” Pretty straight-forward with a little auto-tune and a lot less breakdancing. Gone Sugar Die features Mike Hindert, formerly of The Bravery, along with drummer Duncan Lee and vocalist Patrick McWilliams.

Original Dirty Vegas version:

Photo Recap: Father John Misty and King Tuff at Garfield Park

Father John Misty and King Tuff packed the Garfield Park MacAllister Amphitheater earlier this fall, filling the lawn with sounds from their latest albums. Father John Misty performed tracks from his new album, God’s Favorite Customer, as well as a selection from his earlier releases. The murmurs of ego and self-loathing now synonymous with the Misty brand were in tow, but the live setting allowed for more than that to seep through performance. On display was an artist with a rich palette of experience to pull from, connecting with the crowd by calling out familiar moments of disaffection in everyday life.

King Tuff opened the evening, hurling garage riffs over the crowd as they filled in. Although his newest album, The Other, is a slight sonic departure from the burned out psychedelia of previous albums, the fuzzy heart still remains. The set felt searching yet reassuring, asking lots of questions but not freaking out about the lack of answers.

Photo Recap: Japanese Breakfast and Ought at The Bishop

Touring their widely beloved latest album, Soft Sounds from Another Planet, Japanese Breakfast played to a sold out crowd at The Bishop last Thursday night. Michelle Zauner and company radiated on stage, causing the already toasty room to get even hotter as the crowd  jumped and danced along throughout the evening. Zauner’s vocals have a wry, smoky confidence that soar through a room and meld perfectly with the funky lo-fi pop music she and her bandmates create. With such a strong discography under their belts and an incredibly fun stage presence, Japanese Breakfast make the kind of music that’s even better in person.

Opening the evening was Ought, a post-punk band whose latest album presents a more streamlined version of the careening strut of their earlier work. Their performance featured new music from Room Inside the World that filled the venue with haunting lyrics and driving arrangements helmed by lead singer Tim Darcy’s half-croon/half-yawp. The band had a vibrancy that set the tone for the evening, one that Japanese Breakfast would double-down on an hour later: we’re all a part of this and complacency isn’t an option.
