JOHN WESLEY COLEMAN III is the definition of the wildman troubador in modern times, and has certainly earned a deserved reputation with his sensibility for original, creative and bizarre recordings with both THE GOLDEN BOYS and his namesake here. The guy has a sense of weird, time-proof stoner genius bottled up “as” rock n roll that is undeniable, and gravity worked its magnetic pull. A mix of the real and the absurd in one man, with an uncanny  ability to combine worldly intelligence with humor that “accidentally” hints at the sublime.

Following their studio debut You Win Some, You Loser (Sophomore Lounge, 2010), Chicago’s favorite skateshop pop quartet ANIMAL CITY is back on wax with their follow-up full-length, See You In The Funny Pages. Though two and a half years without a proper record might seem like a healthy hunk of downtime, don’t let the calendar fool you. The boys have been busy. Since first forming their creative kinship nearly 7 years ago, key songwriters Sal Cassato and Dakota Loesch have knocked out a dozen-or-so collections of lo-fi, homegrown, harmonious rock jams ranging in style from stoner/loner acoustic wayfaring to full-on, funked-up and jazzed-out anthems. “I can’t deny the enjoyability that comes with a well-edited, snappy rock band like this… Even as I get older and uglier, I refuse to entirely hate anyone and everyone on the grounds that they are not as bitter as myself; bands like Animal City are chicken soup for the soul.” –Yellow Green Red.

Mikie, Sean, and Jenny of GIVING UP were all snuck out of their 16 year old bedrooms to hang out and cause trouble. Now they sneak out of their respective 20 something year old major midwestern towns to return to Iowa, write songs, goof off, and feel feelings.
