'Checking In' with Warm Ones

By Frank Krolicki

A while back I highlighted Warm Ones' debut album Sprezzatura as one of my favorite Chicago releases of 2010, and many months later it's still getting some pretty regular action on my iPod. The band have been keeping busy working on new material, and here we have the first taste via "Checking In." It's just one minute long, but it's a good example of the sort of scrappy, addictive power pop that makes Warm Ones so much fun. As an added bonus, they've released an alternate, fuller-sounding mix of the garagey track "Toys" off Sprezzatura. Below you can watch the video for "Checking In" and hear the "Fallujah Mix" of "Toys," and also grab both as free mp3s on
