It’s Fine It’s Fine It’s Fine, the new album by Chicago’s Penthouse Sweets, was written and assembled in the basement of a crumbling house on a tiny Logan Square street called Saint Mary Court. The house’s dilapidated backside is the cover of the album. It’s been the home to founding members Lou Hallwas and Andy Hansen and the band’s base of operations for the past 5 years. It’s got a ragged charm that echos the music within. Inside It’s Fine It’s Fine It’s Fine, are 10 concise, overdriven pop songs that are smartly written and played hard. The songs are not fussed-over, but crafted with a freshness and honesty that places an immediacy of feeling above all else.

These days the Penthouse Sweets are: Andy Hansen (lead vocals/guitar), Lou Hallwas (guitar/vocals), Eric Chial (bass) and Adam Yoffe (drums). Since recording It’s Fine It’s Fine It’s Fine, Loren Guzik (drums) and Eric Quinlan (keys) have departed. Without the keys, it’s a more stripped down group than the band that recorded the album. The addition this summer of Adam Yoffe on drums has given the band a more open and free-wheeling feel. Songs are allowed to breathe more, while maintaining the drive and energy that Penthouse Sweets have always been known for.
