GTG097: Two Houses “I Feel So Good I Can’t Stand Myself” cassette out now!

two-houses-cover

We’ve been buds with Chicago’s Two Houses for over 5 years now and we couldn’t be happier to finally be working on a release with them! Their album I Feel So Good I Can’t Stand Myself got a vinyl release via Rad Girlfriend Records – who described the record as “transcend[ing] the boundaries of punk rock while never abandoning it” – last fall and we’ve put it out on cassette just in time for their spring tour. This is a limited run so make sure to get ’em while you can. The album shows off their instrumental chops while never letting a hooky chorus pass by, crafting the type of listening experience that’s just as rewarding on your home stereo as it is in a sweaty, beer-soaked room. Here’s hoping this is the first of many releases we get to partner up with some of our favorite Windy City pals. Tour dates below!

5/19 – Showroom Studios (Indianapolis, IN)
5/20 – Blind Bob’s Bar (Dayton, OH)
5/21 – Northside Yacht Club (Cincinnati, OH)
5/22 – TreeBar (Columbus, OH)

5/24 – JJ’s Bohemia (Chattanooga, TN)
5/25 – The Clermont Lounge (Atlanta, GA)
5/26 – TBA (Birmingham, AL)
5/27 – Eric’s Skatopia (Memphis, TN)
5/28 – Evergreen Park (Carbondale, IL)

Whoo!!

Small Parks Tour!

small-parks-tour

Last fall we had the pleasure of releasing Small Parks‘ debut LP Honest Light and starting this week they’ll be touring the midwest in support of it. Hope some of our friends in well-worn GTG territories like Milwaukee, Minneapolis, and Chicago can make it out to give the “new guys” some welcome slaps on the back (not too hard) and also looking forward to the new friends sure to follow in the other towns. Honest Light truly is the sum of its parts – it sounds like what happens when a group of people from experimental music backgrounds come together to play melodic post-punk and let their instincts take over. It’s catchy without being overly formulaic, and progressive without a hint of pretension. Furthermore, their live show is simply top-notch, energetic, passionate, and real. If it sounds like we’re happy to have them in our ranks, it’s because we are! Check out the dates below, and we hope to see all our hometown family at the Lansing show on March 12.

3/3 – Detroit, MI @ Matkin House
3/4 – Elyria, OH @ Blank Slate Elyria
3/5 – Oxford, OH @ Grixxly’s Crib
