Chicago’s Sonny Falls Have an Excellent New Album Coming Out and Here’s a Taste

Hoagie sent me the unmastered version of the album a few months ago, but the new Sonny Falls LP is finally officially coming out next month! I've written about the band a few times (most recently for The Reader, which if you missed it online you might not have seen since the physical column had the misfortune of appearing in an issue that was quickly pulled due to a (thankfully, quickly fired) senior editorial decision) but here's all you really need to know: Sonny Falls is awesome. Both one of my favorite Chicago bands and creators of one of my favorite albums of 2018. Here's a taste of the new stuff. Order the vinyl. I already did. Oh, and for the visually inclined, here's the video for their first single. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WdHy3vKxoxM?rel=0 A version of this post also appeared here.

Tankboy resides in the body of Jim Kopeny and lives in Mayfair with Pickle the Kitten and a beagle named Betty (RIP) who may actually be slightly more famous than most of the musicians slogging through the local scene. He's written about music for much longer than most bands you hear on the radio have even existed.
