Harvey Fox (LP Release):
Chicago psych-rockers HARVEY FOX are a punk band that discovered jazz chords. Made up of long-time friends Colin Fox (Vocals & Guitar) Dario Velazquez (Drums), Tom Garvey (Bass), and Drake Morey (synth), Harvey Fox carries 10 years of musical collaboration under their belt. After banding together in 2015 as a new group to record their anxiety-fueled debut, PARTY MUSIC FOR THE SAD KIDS, the band has expanded their erratic garage rock sound into a vast and dreamy landscape for their carefully crafted follow-up, LULLABIES FOR THE RESTLESS. Blending influences from THE BEACH BOYS to BLACK SABBATH to the THE STROKES, Harvey Fox creates an eclectic and dynamic sound defined by extremes and experimentation while staying rooted in pop sensibilities. Part cosmic nightmare and part peaceful dream, Harvey Fox puts on an electric and entrancing live performance of indie rock bangers and sprawling psychedelic soundscapes

Daydream Review:
Daydream Review (Elijah Montez) creates dreamy psych pop. His music takes a sonically nostalgic quality, as he weaves classically psychedelic pop sounds à la 1967 Beatles with a synthpop sensibility. After cutting his teeth in the live music capital of the world—Austin—as Laissez Faire Cassette, Montez rebranded as Daydream Review in the advent of his move to Pilsen, Chicago. “Montage” b/w “Then and There” was released shortly after in September 2018, marking a departure from the DeMarcoesque riffs of 2017’s Golden Summer EP into a phase of greater experimentation. Live, Montez is joined by Zac Bron (Breether) on synths and rhythm guitar, Eric Black (Big Blood) on drums, and Derek Muhl (East Facade) on bass. Daydream Review aims to release their debut LP in 2020.

Space Gators:
“Space Gators have flown under the radar for a couple of years in Chicago, but have completely blown away all who've witnessed them. Had the SPACE GATORS been around in the late-60s they would've enjoyed the Cereal Box success of artists like THE TURTLES and TOMMY JAMES, but had they been around in the late-90s they would've fallen alongside critical darlings like THE APPLES IN STEREO and THE DANDY WARHOLS. It's irresponsible to just label them "psych pop", because in reality, the SPACE GATORS are really just the penultimate underground pop band that successfully possesses the sounds of those bygone eras.”
