It’s better to be late than dead and gone…

1. My Luminaries – A Little Declaration – Heaviness. Lightness. Guitars. Footstomping. Power. Pop. Chorus. Late ’90s nostalgia. Stuck. Happy. [from Order from the Chaos|buy]

Somehow, this fearsome foursome has spun together a lush and beautiful album with strands of thread performers like Elliott Smith, Vampire Weekend, and Illinois-area indies like American Football left by the wayside. Unexpected, to say the least. [from This Wilderlessness|buy]
