Looking for something to do tonight? We’ve got you covered. Experimental band BRAINSTORM from Portland, Oregon makes their way to Logan Square’s Burlington bar tonight to perform and celebrate the release of their new album Heat Waves. Produced by the legendary Robby Moncrieff (engineer of Dirty Projectors’ Bitte Orca, Youth Lagoon’s 7″, and Ganglians’ Still Living), Heat Waves features a little electric guitar, a little cymbal action and a lot of unique sound. Weaving in African and Colombian rhythms into their songs, BRAINSTORM is your answer if you’re looking for new music. We caught up with drummer/singer Adam Baz from BRAINSTORM to talk about the band’s progression, their best experiences on tour and their favorite spot in Chicago. Check out the full interview after the jump.

My browser has been running slow all week because of all the songs I kept open after hearing to remember to post them here. So I’m taking a hit in the facebook creeping/online trolling department to keep bringing you good music. It better be appreciated! A lot of cool stuff coming in this week, thank you to everyone that’s been sending. Keep it up! We’ll be debuting a new weekly feature on the blog, with rising artists creating a playlist and answering some fun questions. Stay tuned, and let us know what you think of the week that was!
CHVRCHES – The Mother We Share
This week’s “Week that Was” features a 90 degree turn for Danny Brown (not the whole 180) that’s actually enjoyable, a London remixer that’s yet to release anything bad, and 2 pairs of duos that just released albums available for free download (Odesza and Alpines). As always, continue to send us your music for a chance to be featured here next week! Enjoy!
