TVD Recommends: Mutts record release, the Burlington, 5/12

With the number of Chicago bands putting out truly incredible music, one that I haven’t been able to take my eyes and ears off of is Mutts. The trio somehow manages to make the phrase, heavy rock with a Randy Newman undertone, a reality that you just have to hear.

So as you can imagine, I was absolutely thrilled to find out that five months after the release of their powerhouse album Pray For Rain, Mutts is going vinyl.

Mutts will be celebrating the release at their favorite vinyl-spinning bar, the Burlington this Saturday, 5/12. Grab all of the details you need, below.

The record is an eclectic blend of blues, heavy metal, grunge, and piano rock, which is contrasted with the visible absence of the guitar. Notice I didn’t say audible; the trio does a damn fine job filling the space with just keys, bass and drums.

Pray For Rain is Mutts first vinyl release, and they are starting strong. The 180g record is a limited edition run of 400, on randomly mixed colored vinyl – no two will be alike. The album includes a 12” x 12” insert with lyrics and original photography. Save yourself $5 by picking up the record at the show on Saturday, or pre-ordering it online now for just $10, before it goes back up to $15.

The vinyl release show kicks off at the Burlington (3425 W Fullerton Ave) at 9:00 PM. Mutts will be supported by Good Grief, and Jet W. Lee, and all it’s going to cost you to get in is a $5 donation.
