"The band’s third album, Howl, is a gritty and vulnerable album of R&B cuts that sound like a gritty soul take on Ryan Adams’ Heartbreaker."
Have a listen, read the full interview and check out an in studio performance of Awake from their last album Want More filmed when the band stopped by last year.
Seething with envy that you don't get to see the bounteous music and depravity of South by Southwest this year? Pissed that you can't partake in all the Bloodshot-friendly events in the warm weather of Austin TX? Tired of the drabness of late winter Chicago?
Fear not, we're bringing some of the action to you right HERE, friends!

We shall see you there as we get our livers into fighting shape.
Check out THIS video from Wilco's big Solid Sound Festival in Massachusetts at the end of June.
At around 1 minute, Jeff Tweedy helps JC Brooks and the Uptown Sound on their cover of Wilco's I Am Trying to Break Your Heart. It surprised JC so much, he does a James Brown spin and fall.....Now THAT'S showmanship.
Any band that get the new mayor of Chicago to do THIS is worth signing, we figured.
For a few years now, JCB&US have been scorching clubs all over this town and we got tired of people telling us "You HAVE to sign these guys." So, we got in the BS corporate jet and flew Uptown and woo-ed them with bottles of Osco's house champagne and inked the deal. We hope you come along with us in our love of the Uptown sound. You will sweat.
Look for their BS debut "Want More" in October.
