I’ve been a fan of Cains & Abels since 2009 when I first heard the excellent “Call Me Up, Pt. 2″ from their debut album Call Me Up. The Chicago band has a new record out called My Life is Easy and I have been listening to it virtually nonstop since I played “Stay Home Tonight” on my CHIRP Radio show a few weeks ago. And even though I considered myself a fan, I had not seen the band perform live until I saw their performance at The Hideout for the SXSW send off party about a month ago. There were a ton of great bands on the bill that afternoon and night (Outer Minds!), but I felt that Cains & Abels were head and shoulders above the rest. If you want to check them out for yourself, head on over to Saki tomorrow afternoon for a show they will be doing for Record Store Day and check out the video for “Stay Home Tonight” below. LoudLoopPress has a comprehensive guide to all the events taking place in Chicago so make sure to map out a plan to hit all of your favorite stores.
