One day in the not-too-distant, warmer past, Chicago rockers Village paid a visit to Coach House Sound's studio and recorded a live set of tunes that has just now seen a light of day. If you happened to catch my review of their latest album Local Moves, you'll know I was already a big fan of these guys, and they sound just as great as usual here. They played a few tracks from that LP, plus both songs from their recent digital single, one from their first release Minimal Animal, and a great take on Big Star's "When My Baby's Beside Me." Sweet sounds and good vibes all around.
You can check it out in either video or audio format here. Then, see Village live this Wednesday, December 14th, at the Empty Bottle with Charming People and Strychnine (free with RSVP--more info here).
