Even attempting to cover one or two every week, I’m still not able to keep up with all of the amazing record releases in Chicago. This week though, we’ve got a double whammy. Hollows and Coffin Pricks will be releasing vinyl on the same night, at the same show. Lucky us.
Grab all of the details about the releases and Thursday’s show at the Subterranean, below.
Chicago indie pop quintet Hollows released their debut in 2010, and have since crafted their ‘90s girl-group influence into an impressive sophomore effort. The record features some seriously gorgeous melodies backed by strings and horns on top of the traditional instrumentation.
Hollows is celebrating the release of their full length, Vulture. Released on Trouble in Mind Records, the first edition of 500 copies is pressed on 150g randomly mixed vinyl. If you can’t make it out to the show, you can pick up a copy of the Vulture LP for just $12 from Trouble in Mind, or at a number of Chicago record stores.

The other vinyl release of the night comes from Chicago punk quartet Coffin Pricks. Made up of music scene veterans, the group got together in 2011, and is releasing their anticipated debut EP ahead of an extensive summer touring schedule. Across three tracks, Coffin Pricks re-imagine rock structure with a frantic edge.
Coffin Pricks is celebrating the release of their debut EP, Group Home Haircut, out on Stationary (Heart) Records. The three track EP was recorded at Phantom Manor Studios and is a limited edition of 300 copies. You can grab a copy at the show or via Stationary Heart for just $5.50.
The 17+ show kicks off at the Subterranean (2011 W North Ave) at 8:30 PM. Hollows and Coffin Pricks will be joined by Radar Eyes and Summer Girlfriends. Tickets are just $8, and are available in advance of the show through Ticketweb.
