New Bound Stems - "Happens To Us All Otherwise"
Download: Bound Stems - "Happens To Us All Otherwise"
Bound Stems are a math-indie (Mindie?) rock band from sweet home Chicago who, in the fall, will put out the follow-up to their debut record Appreciation Night. The record is called The Family Afloat, and, hopefully, music fans will appreciate the new effort (did you like what I did there?) as much as they did the old. The first song from Afloat, "Happens To Us All Otherwise", sounds like the most straightforward song they've ever done, with a gloriously anthemic chorus taking center stage. But if this is the same band that I saw at the free Flameshovel sponsored show last year at the Double Door, I know that they still have a few wild tricks up their sleeve.
The Family Afloat is out in September.
