My review of the Blondie/The Handcuffs concert at The House Of Blues in Chicago last night is now up on the Illinois Entertainer website.
Here’s a review of the indie band Project Film I did as part of the Illinois Entertainer’s Around Hears column a while back.
Sam McAllister and Megan Frestedt of the duo Project Film meander into their debut Chicago, which sort of chronicles their move from Minneapolis to our town. The music becomes more focused as the CD progresses, with McAllister playing all the instruments and crafting easy-going duets with vocalist Frestedt. “Sound Sleepers” and “Sun” have a delicate beauty while McAllister’s electric guitar gives “Art School” a harder edge. Overall, Project Film succeeds as a more indie sounding version of She & Him.
