Pet Lions consists of Karl Ostby, Shuhei Yamamoto, Matt Dahl and Joseph Murphy. The band was formed in late 2008 in Chicago, and self-released its debut EP Soft Right in 2009. After garnering the attention of music fans and critics alike, Pet Lions released their debut full-length Houses in 2011 and continued to build upon their foundation of “immediately appealing indie-rock equally filled with sonic surprise and familiar melodiousness”.

The band’s new single “Lightning Bolt” (August 14, 2012) sees Pet Lions continue to expand their songwriting, seamlessly weaving sonic craftsmanship and pop sensibility. As they continue writing and recording their sophomore album, Pet Lions is a band to watch.

Minor Characters is an indie act from Chicago whose music is a mixture of well-crafted songwriting, pop sensibility, and a rare earnestness that’s difficult to overlook. The resulting combination is a carefully composed sound with classic pop leanings that ends up sounding both familiar and fresh.

The brainchild of the former folk singer-songwriter, Andrew Pelletier, Minor Characters was born of the desire to grow beyond performing solo, to create a more engaging and further reaching experience. Pelletier, Shelby Pollard (guitar), Adam Schneider (bass), and James Ratke (drums), bonded quickly over their love for Fleetwood Mac, Grizzly Bear, and Blonde Redhead.

Since their inception in early 2011, Minor Characters has released their debut self-titled EP, played sold-out shows with Dinosaur Jr., Craig Finn of The Hold Steady, and Portugal The Man. Along with becoming an important player in the Chicago music scene, Minor Characters was invited to play at SXSW by revered music blog Brooklyn Vegan, as well as Columbia College Chicago’s record label, AEMMP Records.

Minor Characters are gearing up for 2013, as they will release an EP in early spring along with subsequent touring. In addition, the band will begin the recording of their first full-length record. Expect big things from this band in the coming year.
