Let it flow with Soft Bodies, see them live 01.30

The debut EP by Soft Bodies is a record in constant motion. Not motion like a freight train barreling down the line or an airplane dipping and diving through the clouds, but motion like something more organic and common to us all. It pulses, it waves, it flows, and when it skips a beat and jumps right for you, it’s both startling and beautiful. Though the tracks here range from laid back 90’s house fare (in the best way possible) to funky-as-it-gets, they move as smoothly from one to the next as they do from verse to chorus.

Catch Soft Bodies this Saturday (01.30) at Cafe Coco and pick up a free copy of the EP while you're there. -Austin Phy

The Main Squeeze "Angelus"

The Main Squeeze have released a '70's funk-infused video from the first single, "Angelus", from their forthcoming sophomore album, Mind Your Head. The new album was produced by Randy Jackson and could propel this hard working band into a brighter spotlight. The band has departed for California to perform this month. However, they have announced that they will not be returning to Chicago but setting up shop in LA.

Have your hair of the dog tonight at Turn! Turn! Turn!

If you woke up today still feeling the high of last night (or worse, the post-party hangover), try your hand at a little hair of the dog, accompanied with some music. Keep the New Year's celebration in full swing tonight at the Turn! Turn! Turn! (formerly the Record Room, for all you old schoolers), who happen to be celebrating their first day with a liquor license. Spinning some classic soulful tunes will be local DJs Danny Glover's Kid, Calamity Kate, Crambone and Cobra, starting at 7pm. Crawl out of bed and keep the party going.
