A few Chicago music news bites

  • Archie Powell & the Exports have taken to Kickstarter to raise a few bucks for their creative endeavors, but are doing it a bit different than most bands. Instead of asking for money to fund an album, the band is looking for help with their "Burrito Lunch" project, "whose goal is to write and record an original song (about eating Mexican food with your friends) and film a video for it." Details here.
  • Chicagoist reviewed last Friday's show at Subterranean with Grouplove, Young Man and Deserters.
  • NYLONmag.com is offering A Lull's new single "Some Love" for free download. You can also check out the video for the track on spinner.com.
  • Gapers Block ran a roundup of last weekend's inaugural Brilliant Corners of Popular Amusements festival in West Town's Eckhart Park. See what they had to say about the music festival-circus hybrid here.
  • Head over to NPR.org to steam Wilco's new album, The Whole Love.
