Don’t bother asking Twin Peaks about the deeper meaning of their band name. They simply thought it sounded cool, which explains why their second album Wild Onion (out August 5th on The Grand Jury) isn’t as spooky or surreal as David Lynch’s short-lived TV show. It’s more like a modern day Nuggets, with Ty Segall, Black Lips and Thee Oh Sees curating instead of Lenny Kaye. Not literally, of course. But the spirit of those garage demigods is alive and well alongside subtle nods to everything from the Pixies and Tame Impala to the godfathers of guitar-guided pop music, the Beatles, the Rolling Stones and the Beach Boys.

If combining the influence of so many classic artists seems like a lofty goal for a group of 20 year olds, just remember that Twin Peaks’ core quartet—frontman Cadien Lake James, guitarist Clay Frankel, bassist Jack Dolan and drummer Connor Brodner—has roots that reach back to elementary school. And while their friendships were forged long ago, James also learned the ins and outs of the local Chicago scene with his last project: Teenage Dream, a minimal-yet-mean duo with his older brother Hal.

FinleyKnight is the music project of brothers John Finley and Connor Knight Detjen. The multi-instrumentalists, Chicago natives, have a shifting set of musical sensibilities, variously morphing from art rock to radio-ready indie-pop to emotive electro facades. The duo began making music together at an early age, and have gone on to record in Chicago, New York, Buenos Aires, and Los Angeles. After touring the US, with residencies in NYC, Austin, Chicago, and Boston, the brothers spent time in South America, performing across Argentina in 2012. FinleyKnight moved to LA in March of 2013 to collaborate with Joey Waronker on their first full length, self-titled album.

Joey Waronker of Atoms For Peace, Beck, REM, joined FinleyKnight as producer for this debut record. The three spent months in Joey's Los Feliz studio perfecting what the brothers had already spent two years creating. Waronker, a renowned wizard of syncopation, contributed to the album’s bold rhythmic adventure, and helped cultivate the unique forward-thinking vision of John and Connor. This debut album exemplifies FinleyKnight’s focus on the progression and evolution of modern music.

A native of the Missouri Ozarks, singer-songwriter Jodee Lewis was raised on folk songs and honky-tonk, and her music reflects the best of both worlds. Lewis trained in classical piano and began playing guitar and writing music after moving to Chicago in 1999 with her husband, Chad.

Growing up in a small town, Lewis sang in her church gospel choir and with her grandfather’s country band, eventually attending Washington University in St. Louis to study Chemical Engineering. After a career with companies such as Monsanto and Clorox, Lewis decided to focus on music and raising her three children.

She explores the themes of loss, heartache, and ultimately, finding hope and beauty during moments of challenge. Considered a true storyteller, Lewis uses music to connect with listeners through shared emotion and honesty.

Whiskey Halo is Lewis’ first solo album, and she currently lives with her family in the Lincoln Square neighborhood of Chicago.

Nashville’s already laid claim to the phrase, but if there’s any other place in America that could be called “Music City, USA,” it’s Chicago. The city’s long had a renowned jazz and blues scene that spawned a number of legends, and, for many years, it was the home of country music radio program – and precursor to the Grand Ole Opry – The National Barn Dance on WLS.

Chicago-based band Jonas Friddle & The Majority, who met one another through Windy City institution The Old Town School of Folk Music, take full advantage of their city’s rich and diverse musical scene on their third album, Use Your Voice. The seven-member group plays what they’ve come to describe as “orchestral folk,” along the lines of Joy Kills Sorrow or Lake Street Dive, incorporating trumpet, trombone, drums, and keyboard alongside traditional acoustic instruments. The result is an irresistible, “Uncle Dave Macon meets Duke Ellington” sound on songs like “Old Mother Logo,” on which Friddle’s clawhammer banjo weaves through jaunty horns, and “Keep My Skillet Good and Greasy,” where Bailey Doyle, the group’s cello player, delivers a brassy, bluesy vocal turn.

Royale is committed to recording and playing strictly good music. We like it heavy, soft, slick and spacey. If that sounds dirty it should. Big guitars, big drums, big bass... "Yacht Metal" is what we're calling it.

Each band in the lineup calls Chicago Music Exchange home, where you can find them behind the counter on a daily basis or see them in front of the camera on the store's popular YouTube channel.

Come one, come all, bring a guest, see some great gear and enjoy quality music.
