Two brand-new tunes penned by founder John Willis (keys, vocals), will be available for download and streaming this fall: “Party Prince,” a Prince-inspired party anthem, and “Home to You,” an homage to Little Rock, home of Late Romantics. You can find Late Romantics’ 2015 release, “Bad Boyfriend EP,” and more information about the band at johnwillisandlateromantics.bandcamp.com

Yoko & the Oh No’s
Yoko & the Oh No’sYoko & the Oh No’s
Chicago Rock N Roll with a Touch of Soul
Yoko & the Oh No’s began with three friends from Chicago: Max Goldstein on vocals, Max Loebman on guitar, and Stef Roti on drums. It doesn’t quite add up how a group this young managed to tap into a vibe this classic. While still in high school, Max L. produced and recorded the trio’s self-titled, full-length debut in his childhood basement. The album is crammed with classic rock riffs and swinging beats. Dolled up in flashy get-ups, Max G.’s voice is a growly thing, emoting loosely and wildly. Yoko & the Oh No’s have a reputation for their energetic and memorable live shows, but you really should see for yourself.
