Dhan Dee "Muddy Waters"

Dhan Dee of Chicago Loud 9 is dropping a new mixtape called “Muddy Waters” on June 30th. The album’s first single is called “Nickels and Dimes” and it cleverly plays with the duel meaning of both words.

You can catch Dee performing with Chicago Loud 9 on July 6th at Emporium Wicker Park.


the Hÿss @ Metal Monkey Brewing (6/28)

Doom Metal group the Hÿss recently released their latest EP, “Hound”. This is the energetic metal fuel of Dave Fitzgerald (guitars/vocals), Pat Kennedy (guitars/mandolin/vocals), Matt McDonald (vocals), Mike Scales (drums), and Bill Sullivan (bass).

You can help the Hÿss celebrate the release of their new EP at Metal Monkey Brewing in Romeoville on June 28th with These Beasts.


Highest Low "Underdogs"

Highest Low, the Hip Hop duo of Just Wise and Cruz Ocho, released their latest album, Underdogs, earlier this month. The album features production from Joe Tyse and contributions from Lil Bruja, Je$$e, Black Logic, and Tomcantsleep.

Skul.Kid "Dove Songs"

Skul.Kid (aka Chace Wall) released a new EP, “Dove Songs”, via Midwest Action last week. As with Wall’s previous solo work, this is beautifully intimate Lo-fi bedroom folk pop.
