Secret Colours on Live From Studio 10 (aired April 2014)
67 plays

Chicago’s Secret Colours have been generating a national buzz around the release of their 2-part album Positive Distractions and their sound steeped in 60’s psychedelia and 90’s Britpop. With new album and mostly new members, comes a new fresh approach to songwriting but there’s still plenty of reverb on jangly guitar riffs and spacey organ sounding keys to make it one of Secret Colours’ best.

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. One hour of music and interview, all live. The show is hosted by Jesse Menendez, produced by Fyodor Sakhnovski and engineered by Adam Yoffe. Subscribe to the podcast here: bitly.com/vocaloLFS10

What started as Angie Mead and a series of iPod demo recordings on a broken down acoustic guitar, has evolved into a distorted wall of driving garage rock songs.

Now Chicago duo Redgrave is ready to unleash new material over the course of this year in a series of digitally released singles.

Sure. After 28 years, SXSW may now be wrought with more corporate dollars than a political campaign and more brand logos than Jeff Gordan’s stock car. But. And I do mean but. Who cares? Seriously.

Yes, there’s a Dorito’s Stage and yes Lady Gaga, Kanye West and other…
