Last Minute Plans: Blane Fonda @ Subt

Congratulations Mark! As evidenced by the above picture, Blane Fonda’s front man and lead singer became pregnant while we were on the road for shows in Missouri last month. You can get pregnant from gas station cheese dogs, right?

In related news, Blane had an excellent time playing some rocks and roll shows in Kansas City and St. Louis; there’s a recap of the trip complete with color pictures up at our internet website-blog. Next weekend, we head back for another show in St Louis, this time with a stop in Indianapolis for a show with some fellow Chicago-types, Dr Manhattan. Before all that, we’ll be playing tonight, at Subterranean in Wicker Park with Explode into Colors and Carbon Tigers.

So… 2010 is looking pretty busy so far, but we’re not complaining. Except when the heat in our rehearsal space is never on and we wear gloves during practice; then we’re complaining. – Charlie Nadler


Red Ants

Via Nuon has created a beautifully animated video for the new track from Sonoi called “Red Ants”. The self-titled debut album from Sonoi will be released this April by Low Transit Industries. Here is another peak at the eclectic and expiremental album and the track “Sherry Fall”.


Joe Pug Preorder and New Track

Messenger, the debut full-length from Joe Pug, will be released on February 16th. In preparation Joe just released another track from the album called “The Sharpest Crown”. The track is a somber love story about the struggles we all face. Joe also announced that his debut ep, Nation of Heat, will be re-released on 10" colored vinyl later this month. You can preorder Messenger here and you can catch Joe at Lincoln Hall on Feb. 27th.


Daily News

Here is a new free single from Mike Schpitz and Slot-A called "Daily News". The track also appears on the compilation Rhymes & Rhythm for Relief released late last month by DJ booth.net. All proceeds go to CARE Foundation to help the relief effort in Haiti. The minimum donation is $5. The compilation also features Chicago emcees Pugz Atomz, Mikkey Halsteed and more.


Introducing Young Man

Young Man is fantastic project by 20-year-old Chicago based songwriter, Colin Caulfield. With a sound reminiscent to Panda Bear or Deerhunter, Colin seems to keep things simple, yet with the addition of some exceptional layers, giving him some major promise for 2010. A debut "concept" album, Boy, is planned for a spring/summer release. Here's a lovely demo called, "Just A Growin'," however head on over to his YouTube page to watch some great clips/covers and to grab some mp3s. – Brendan Losch
