Lightfoils on Live From Studio 10 - 7/22

Building upon the likes of My Bloody Valentine and Slowdive, Chicago’s Lightfoils carry forth the dreampop / shoegaze traditions of creating rich, noisy soundscapes with ethereal vocals. But to that they add killer groovy bass riffs and steady textured beats. We’re excited to welcome the band in our studio to play songs off their new full-length Hierarchy.

Tune in Tuesday, 7/22 at 8pm CT on 90.7 FM (CHI) / 89.5 FM (NWI) / www.vocalo.org/player
