New Music from Chicago - Meet HEAD OF FEMUR

ONE TO WATCH IN 2008 - HEAD OF FEMUR
TALENTED CHI-TOWN POP GIANTS

HEAD OF FEMUR (Greyday Records) is the creative vessel for the whimsical pop music explorations of Mike Elsener and Matt Focht (former drummer of Bright Eyes). In March, the band just released the GREAT PLAINS album. The new record is a rumbling ride through the country, a rocket ship into space, a journey into the mind of the artists. This one is definitely catchy (you'll see) to the point where it becomes irresistible!


On the Great Plains album, the band was allowed to bend the music to their will - and what is produced is the blinding white light of true 'pop radio.' It's feel-good music without cause or care. Because of the number of unusual tracks with unusual time signatures contained within "Great Plain," and by the variety of instruments showcased - including the percussive use of horns and organs, HEAD OF FEMUR could easily fit into the collection of progressive rock fans. They pull off some amazing stuff in a very small package!
