Empires on Live From Studio 10 (09/14)
94 plays

Since they started, Chicago’s Empires have been committed to a DIY approach to music. That, and their hard work ethic has nurtured their impressive output of anthemic rock albums. It’s these factors that have been the key to the band’s steady climb to success. In a short time they’ve played at Lollapalooza, and made an appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman. The band’s new album is called Orphan (out this month). We’re excited to welcome the guys back in our studio to hear some of the new songs and talk about the new release.

Live From Studio 10 airs Tuesdays at 8pm CST on Vocalo 91.1 FM & 90.7 FM (CHI) / 89.5 FM (NWI) and Vocalo.org. The show features emerging bands and music artists from Chicago and beyond. One hour of music and interview, all live. Hosted by Jesse Menendez, produced by Fyodor Sakhnovski and engineered by Adam Yoffe. Subscribe to the podcast here: bitly.com/vocaloLFS10

Walking Bicycles on Live From Studio 10 (aired August 2014)

There’s a lot of dissonance and unnerving tension on Walking Bicycles’ new album To Him That Wills The Way. Not surprising, considering the album (first in 5 years) recounts the band’s experiences with separation, longing, captivity and freedom as a result of the incarceration of one of its members. The story is told through singer Jocelyn’s somber droning vocals and the dark menacing atmosphere created by heavy guitar riffs.

Live From Studio 10 airs Tuesdays at 8pm CST on Vocalo 90.7 FM (CHI) / 89.5 FM (NWI) and Vocalo.org, and features emerging bands and music artists from Chicago and beyond.
