The Kickback is a Chicago based Indie rock outfit crafting tunes similar to the the likes of Spoon. Fittingly enough, the just recently recorded their new full length with Spoon’s Jim Eno. Usually a guitar driven band, this video shed some light on the band’s more intimate side.
I first discovered Sister Species in the dim lit living room of a Chicago D.I.Y. house venue. I immediately grew fond of the sister-fronted group the moment their stories filled the air in the form of vocal harmonies and catchy accordion lines.
"Come Back Now" is my favorite track off of their album entitled Nothing To Me Yet. The song orates the trials and tribulations of long distance relationships in an original and interesting way. Other top picks from the album include “My Oh My” and “I Saw a Bird”.
