  • Announcing 7DA 009 – Stolen Airplane – There Are Worse Things to (Be)Come

    Crystal Lake, Illinois based Stolen Airplane, fuses the electrifying spirit of the 90’s DIY Underground with the influence of multiple genres of music, to create a provocative and energetic sound that feels nostalgic, yet still comfortably alien, all at the same time. Lead singer/guitarist Marv Doolin’s whiskey-soaked voice, a sort of punk-folk hybrid, shows traces(…)

Announcing 7DA 009 – Stolen Airplane – There Are Worse Things to (Be)Come

There are Worse things to (Be)ComeCrystal Lake, Illinois based Stolen Airplane, fuses the electrifying spirit of the 90’s DIY Underground with the influence of multiple genres of music, to create a provocative and energetic sound that feels nostalgic, yet still comfortably alien, all at the same time.

Lead singer/guitarist Marv Doolin’s whiskey-soaked voice, a sort of punk-folk hybrid, shows traces of everyone from Tom Waits to Frank Black.  Vocalist/guitarist Jim Birkenkamp consistently delivers a solid, crunchy, fuzz-rock guitar sound and passionate vocals to complement Doolin’s melodic lead, while keeping everybody on their toes.  Bassist/ vocalist J Burke supplies a thunderous and consistent groove while drummer/vocalist, Jeremy Judy, fuses the sound together with his brand of powerful, intricate drumming.

Announcing 7DA 008 – Sunken Ships – Self-Titled

SS-cover-art-square_WebFormed by former Sybris drummer Eric Mahle with men of the proverbial hour: Scott Spidale (Premium, My Cold Dead Hand, Drive), Fritz Doreza (Muchacha, Decibators, Mister Furley) and Danny Severson (Kevin Tihista’s Red Terror, Suffrajet, Dorian Taj).

Pulling their influences from the underground of the late ’80s and ’90s, Sünken Ships specializes in guitar rock with a particular indie bent that leans more in the direction of overdriven melody than anything else. We think one listen to their album is all it will take to hook you. Its contents feel warmly familiar and the band avoids any easy pitfalls that might slow down the proceedings, instead focusing on keeping the vibe lively and the volume cranked up. This makes sense since many of these songs have been percolating through the band’s live sets for years, so they’ve had plenty of time to naturally evolve. The result is an album of music that’s had it’s weaker parts rubbed off through years of stage testing. This is no new foray into the unfamiliar for these musicians. And we, as listeners, definitely benefit from that. -Chicagoist-
