On the heels of a discouraging election, let us again focus on something that Chicago is doing right: Ne-Hi. The local foursome opened up the Twin Peaks record release party at Lincoln Hall last week—one of the wildest and most fun shows I've seen this year—and made another statement supporting why they're one of the city's best up-and-comers. Their self-titled debut—released earlier this year via Manic Static—is expertly executed indie rock that features rotating vocal duties and an overall grandeur tied to gently whirling reverb and undeniably catchy guitar riffs. Today's 12 O'Clock Track, "Time Wanna," is a bouncy but driving number that showcases vocals hopping over one another and a simple melody that will have you unconsciously humming the rest of the day. Ne-Hi headlines a free show at the Empty Bottle on Mon 12/1.
