Little Boy Jr. put their recent win as The Deli Chicago's "Artist of the Month" to good use. As a result of scoring the most votes in that poll the band was able to record a couple new tracks at Catfish Studios, and now have them ready to share with the world as free downloads on their Bandcamp page. The two tracks--"Tell Me" and "Lazy Lover"--clock in at a total running time of under four minutes and carry on the '60s garage pop vibe established on their debut Local Thieves, but this time there's a bit more polish to smooth over some of the rough edges. Although very DIY in production, Local Thieves was the sound of a band with a lot of promise, and these new tracks make it clear these guys are well worth paying attention to. I admire LBJ's very obvious reverence of retro pop and look forward to hearing more. Listen to/download the new tracks for yourself below and catch the band live on Wednesday, April 25th at Red Line Tap.
