On their new album Empros, Chicago-based trio Russian Circles makes a convincing case for instrumental post-[insert genre]. “309,” Empros‘ opener, hits harder than anything the band has done before, due in equal part to the guitar tone (fits right in with the cover’s pervasive reds, for all you synesthetes out there) and the rhythm section’s locked-in chemistry. Emrpos is available now on Sargent House. You can also stream/buy it off Russian Circles’ Bandcamp page.
Sunday Brunch with Tom and Drew is a radio program to bring the masses together. It was created with a vision to share with the world the two things that Drew and Tom hold most dearly: Music and Brunch. Since the technology to deliver food through the airwaves does not yet exist, Tom and Drew can merely provide you with a lovely range of soundtracks to sooth the mind and titillate the ears. So chef up some eggs and tune in to SOCC on Sundays from 2-3pm. For more information and random musings, check them out on Facebook

I discovered Wild Child at a time when I needed it most. It was the Wednesday of block break, the snow was pounding its icy coldness down onto Colorado Springs, and I was stuck at a lifeless airport. There’s something about sugary-sweet folk duos that make everything seem at least for a few minutes, that life is about attaining some mystical romance. It was a much needed release from the anxiety of traveling. Since then, I’ve been hooked. You can check out their debut album, Pillow Talk (2011) now!
