The Changes

Solid set by a good new act out of Chicago at the Rickshaw Stop for Noise Pop last night. They played the majority of their fine first album, Today is Tonight (All Music Review here). Truly a band that defines any easy description, The Changes draw from several genres ("When I Wake" sounds like a lost 80's hit, full with cheesy synthesizers, "Such a Scene" is driven by a propulsive backbeat and charging guitars) but are still firmly grounded as a pop band. Last night's set list (off the top of my head):

Modern Love
On a String
Water of the Gods
When I Wake
Such a Scene
Her, You & I
When I Sleep

Quite a good show...especially for $10. And the extended guitar freak out in "Her, You & I" was choice.
