Shine Brothers, Secret Colours, Strychnine, Bare Mutants 

When: Thu., July 25, 8:30 p.m. 2013
Chicago psych-rock revivalists Secret Colours started out with their sights set on the genre’s mid-60s origins: fuzz-pedal explorers such as Pink Floyd, the Velvet Underground, and the Beatles in their early acid period. On their latest album, the self-released Peach, they show the influence of the generation of bands who were doing pretty much the same thing in the 80s and 90s, most of them in the UK. The spirit of Jason Spaceman looms large over the record, but there’s also an airiness to the production, an increased emphasis on rhythm, and a certain loony feel to the whole venture that’s reminiscent of the Madchester scene’s more rock-oriented groups; a few cuts have enough muscular hooks and trippy effects to evoke Oasis’s occasional (and frequently overlooked) detours into psychedelia. —Miles Raymer Shine Brothers headline; Strychnine and Bare Mutants open. Secret Colours also play Wicker Park Fest on Sun 7/28.
