Golden Days is pop bliss. It’s also a track off the debut album from Chicago’s Whitney.
Max Kakacek, formerly of Smith Westerns, and Julien Ehrlich, previously with Smith Westerns and Unknown Mortal Orchestra, make up Whitney. The album, Light Upon the Lake, was recorded by Foxygen’sJonathan Rado. It is scheduled for release June 3.
You can catch these guys at Thalia Hall May 10. They’re also on the Friday lineup of Pitchfork fest July 15.
Brooklyn’s B Boys will appeal to fans of Parquet Courts and other post-punk revivalists.
Like Parquet Courts, B Boys make infectious music that will draw you in — beginning with the first track, Seagulls, on the band’s debut EP, No Worry No Mind. The eight-song release just came out Friday (March 18).
You can also see these guys in Chicago. The group is scheduled for an early May show at Beat Kitchen.
