The more I listen to the new Shadow of the Marigold CD from Whitewolfsonicprincess in preparation for a review that should post here sometime next week, the more I'm impressed with its stark, inventive imagery and textured arrangements. This is the third effort from the Chicago indie rock band, which is fronted by vocalist Carla Hayden and vocalist-guitarist James Moeller. Whitewolfsonicprincess has a release party for Shadow Of The Marigold next Saturday night at Silvie's Lounge in Chicago.

Christopher David from the Chicago alt rock band Magatha Trysty has a release party for The Houdini Tapes coming up next Saturday, February 27 at The Elbo Room on Lincoln Avenue. In my recent review of David's solo effort, I noted that it was a change of pace for him, but still showcased his knack for creating strong melodies and intriguing if sometimes cryptic lyrics.
