 The Laureates (3 Albums, 18 Tracks)

Artist

live at WFMU April 2010
CURATOR:
LOCATION:Chicago, IL
MEMBERS:
  • Chad Preston - Vocals/Guitar
  • Adam Penly - Guitar/Keyboard/Vocals
  • Crawfie Ward - Bass
  • Pete Gray - Drums/Vocals

This Chicago band has drawn comparisons to Guided By Voices and Big Dipper, among others, with production that hints at a more twisted wall of sound than even Phil Spector could have imagined. Their songs are plain-spoken and plaintive, with more hooks than a fleet of tow trucks. 

They made their debut with a self-titled 7'' EP in 2007, and their latest EP No Kontrol is out now on the Funambulist label (all available for free download or purchase via their website)

My ears are in love. With both their originals and their covers. If I could I would wiggle my ears in happiness.
