Week that Was (2-6-13)

The Week that Was has been MIA for a couple of months, showing its head every once in a while. We’ve let our readers down. That’s why today marks the return… I’ve caught up on all the emails in the acityinthemidwest@gmail.com account (which you can submit music to at any time) and bring you a mega Week that Was. Think of it as a February gift. We’re back for good now. 20 tracks you need to check out. If you’d like any more information/would like to hear more of any of the artists featured, let us know and we’ll make it happen. Music is alive. Enjoy, tell your friends, and let us know what you think.

Week that Was (1-9-13 to 1-16-13)

Michael’s in Spain on Study Abroad and doesn’t have Internet in his apartment yet (boo hoo, I know).┬áMy first addition of Week That Was features a mix of music from some of our favorite artists including Youth Lagoon and Cold War Kids, as well as tracks submitted to us from up-and-comers Victories at Sea and GirlsOnDrugs. As always, keep sending us your music for a chance to be featured!

Week that Was (11-1-12 to 11-14-12)

We missed last week but we’re back with a bang, featuring double the amount of songs we’d normally give you. You have a lot of listening to do, so stop reading and get to it! I couldn’t decide who to make the overall feature artist, so Autre Ne Veut, Veronica Falls, and Cities Aviv get the joint honors. Enjoy!

*Autre Ne Veut – Counting

Week that Was (7-6-12 to 7-11-12)

As we prepare for Pitchfork 2012, the weather has finally given Chicago a break and it is finally bearable to stand outside for longer than 43 seconds. Enjoy the music from this week, let us know what we missed, what you’d like to see more of, or just if you liked any of the tracks! We’re doing it big… 11 tracks for the first time ever.

Bloc Party – Octopus
