Music from the background: January

January 21, 2011

While listening to WBEZ you hear a ton of different music, but often it's such a short clip that there's no time to tell you who the artist actually is. This week we continue to share some of the records that we're playing on the air lately -- old or new, whether they're between segments, underneath promotional spots, or somewhere else. 

The Son of P.M. / Lhow Lenum / 

Frontman Jeff Walls described his band to Metromix last November as a "fuzzy Kinks rip-off." It's a fine reference point, but there's much more to be mined from the local group's blown-out pop gems. This song is from a yet-to-be-released full-length expected later in 2011.
