From Chicago comes the latest release from Gramps The Vamp. Their new album titled "The Cave Of 10,000 Eyes," combines elements of funk, jazz and psych-rock to create the perfect horror film-type soundtrack. The new ten-song release begins with the horn-infused mystery of "Bats!" and the use of radio airwaves and sonic guitar strums gives the song "The Incident" a jazzy, spooky, hip groove. Their sound becomes huge on the build up of "Krampusnacht," before rocking to the guitar frenzy of "Labyrinth." Gramps The Vamp delivery an eerie lounge vibe with "Shadow Puppets," before closing the album with the wonderful horns of "Pyramid Level."

the buzzing rock groove of "Sticky." They deliver their youthful
post-punk, garage-rock energy in "Chasing Time," before slowing down for
the sweeping melody of "Hell Jazz." The album finishes with the
guitar-driven rhythm of "Fake Cigarette," the grunge-rock of "Prove It"
and the epic, tempo changes of "Devils." To find out more about The

Chicago-based singer/songwriter Peter Joly recently released his
self-titled debut album. It features members of Iron & Wine, The
Hoyle Brother and Ryley Walker helping Joly achieve the Americana sound
he desired to deliver on this release. It begins with the build-up of
"Heart Of Stone" as the soft, solo acoustics grow to into its full-band
sing-along. His music settles down for the emotional ballads "Your Hand
In Mine" and "God In Love In June" before delivering the classic waltz
of "Lighthouse." Peter wraps up his new 11-song release with the sweet
sounds of "Love" and quiet acoustic folk-style of "Secret." To find out
