“Take Me As I Am” by Postcode

The follow up to September’s Year Of The Zebra Part One EP, Part Two is out now from Small Bear Records.

Whereas the first part was lighter and more upbeat, Year Of The Zebra Part Two EP sees Postcode returning to more familiar terrain, darker and in places noisier. The recording expands in different directions, adding keyboards, 12-string guitar, and backwards delay. Once again the EP was recorded as a duo by founding members Marie Reynolds and Mikie Daugherty.

The video for “Take Me As I Am” can be viewed on YouTube.

“Fake It” by Graham Czach

Versatile Chicago-based singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Graham Czach fuses modern and progressive rock sensibilities with pop-like hooks and socially conscious message-driven music. His new EP Star By Star is rich with atmospherically heavy tones and lush bass grooves.

Having played music for the last 27 years, he is an original, wildly creative, and accomplished composer, upright-electric bassist, vocalist, and guitarist. Citing influences such as The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Muse, Jeff Buckley, Tool, Coldplay, Mars Volta, and more, Czach effortlessly mixes elements of classic psychedelic rock, progressive, and 90’s grunge into a refreshingly unique sound.

Czach has been a big part of The Windy City music scene for a number of years playing bass with Hey Champ, Chicago Afrobeat Project, the Chicago Diamond Trio, Secondhand Smoke (Sublime Tribute), and many other bands. Czach currently resides in Chicago while making the transition to Los Angeles, where his passion and philosophy behind the music is to touch, unite, and make a difference in people’s lives by spreading lasting universal messages through the only universal language: music.
