LSTN // Gardens & Villa Cover The Animals, Currently Bringing Happiness to Cities Across America

Maybe it’s just us, but it seems everything Gardens & Villa touch turns to gold. They take a song, morph it into what on the surface seems cool and collected. Then you find yourself at the two minute mark, energized and body moving. Your confidence is overwhelming. You’re ready to take over the world. It’s just what they’ve done to The Animals’ “We Gotta Get Out Of This Place,” a song we all recognize from some distant youth. RCRD LBL shares the exclusive download >>> enjoy the cover.

The G&V dudes are currently on tour. The music is without a doubt something you’ve got to experience in person. If you’re in Chicago, head to Schubas tonight for their show with Moon King. They’ll head to Bloomington tomorrow and then join Polica for handful of shows >>> full list of dates and tickets.

WATCH: Exitmusic Performs “The City” in Empty Concert Hall

ForNoOne.tv shares a new video of Exitmusic performing “The City” in an empty, Chicago concert hall during a soundcheck.

In other awesome news, NPR just included Exitmusic in Our Favorite Music of the Year (So Far). Listen to the All Songs Considered discussion HERE.

WATCH: Damien Jurado Live at WBEZ, On Tour Now


Damien Jurado returned to Chicago’s WBEZ a few days ago for an in-studio performance before playing a SOLD OUT show at Schuba’s later that night! You might have heard Damien on the show back in 2010, playing in support of Saint Bartlett. He chats it up with host Andrew Gill and plays a few songs as well. You can download the entire show HERE and watch him play “Working Titles” and “Museum of Flight,” both off of 2012′s Maraqopa, above.

Damien is currently on tour. He’ll play Somerville tonight and ANOTHER SOLD OUT show at the Mercury Lounge on Saturday! When previewing the show, The New York Times writes, “A snarling hard-core punk turned diligently bleeding heart, Mr. Jurado is a folk singer-songwriter with rare delicacy and resilience. His 10th studio album, Maraqopa (Secretly Canadian), is his most intriguing yet: acidly psychedelic and uneasily introspective, it even dips a toe into lush Wall of Sound pop (“Reel to Reel”).” Check all tour dates HERE.
