BRAIN IDEA is one of Chicago’s most exciting new bands. Their second release is also their debut full-length on Permanent Records. It’s fulla stripped down, super upbeat, catchy and totally DIY-style rock’n’roll jams, heavily influenced by New Zealand’s legendary DIY indie rockers, The Clean and ‘90s bedroom recording pop savants. The band took most of the material on their out-of-print and highly sought after demo tape and re-recorded it with much more depth and reverb, especially on the vocals. They’ve added some great instrumental interludes that tie the tracks together which are quite kraut-y in nature.
