An astounding three weeks ago, I got an e-mail from the drummer for Chicago’s The Interiors, talking about his band (obviously) and how I should give them a listen. Like any other self-respecting music blogger, I was morally obligated to oblige (alliteration unintended) and found myself enjoying their rocking songs thoroughly. If you’re one of those intrepid souls who downloads and listens to songs in the order they’re given, don’t let I’m So Happy throw you for a loop, since while that song is overtly bluesy rock, the rest aren’t. Something that shows up throughout all their tracks, however, are some of the most socially conscious lyrics outside of vintage punk rock. On You Should Have Known, they sing “Never thinking what’s it for / You’re only thinking the pay is so good.” Modern times just got zinged.

This is another instance of a band without a released album and, as such, no album art. So, enjoy the live photo that is used in its stead. I should mention that while they’re using Let Us Crazy! as a tentative album title, it should be used as T-Rex would be pleased. I don’t need to mention something about enjoying the music because you’ll do that on your own.
