Off the back of releasing their fourth album, the Chicago garage-rock quintet curate us a playlist of their favourite tracks.
Since 2010, Chicago quintet Twin Peaks has been making waves with their brand of charming and pulsating garage-rock. And the arrival of their fourth studio album Lookout Low, blessed us with more of the retro tones we know and love.
We caught up with the band, who curated us a playlist of their favourite tracks…
Jungle Green – “Cryin’”
A great song by a band that I just got into. Sounds like John Lennon and Girls. I like their new album very much.
Dehd – “Thousand Times”
One of my favourite songs by the amazing Dehd. Short, sweet, sad, beautiful, and ripping. Love this song.
Jeff Tweedy – “I Know What It’s Like”
Chose this song because I fell in love with this record Warm earlier this year. Jeff has always had lyrics that resonated deeply with me, and this songs is a strong example of that.
The Lemons – “Lemoncita”
I chose this song because this is one of the more fun bands we’ve had the pleasure of playing with. they’ve perfected the art of having a good time and giving off amazing energy without taking themselves too seriously. I love that.
Jude Shuma – “Summer Syndrome”
A blissful, gooey psych track from our friend and studio neighbour Jude Shuma. Great groove, feels like an egg frying on the sidewalk.
The Hecks – “So 4 Real”
This new single from chi band The Hecks is like a cool breath on a hot and sticky summer night, or stepping into an alien oxygen bar after sweating through a Hawaiian shirt.
Divino Niño – “Quiero”
It’s tough to pick a single song off this record because i think it’s been my absolute favourite this summer.
Ne-hi – “Money”
What a poetic end to one of my favourite bands ever.. coming out with some of the best shit they’ve done as a precursor to breaking up is how every great band should go out.
Peach – “Ohmme”
Ohmme are the most talented folks in Chicago music if you ask me. This dynamic of this song is so exciting to me and manages to feel both avant-garde and catchy.
Marcus – “Jake and Javier”
I love all the guys in Post Animal and all the music they come up with in and outside the band. This is a really fun one that two of the guys made with an incredible synth solo.
