Swing South: Company of Thieves

Company of Thieves: "In Passing" (live)
Annuals: "Brother"

This Chicago band
is mostly hitting up midwest dates on tour with Raleigh, NC-native band Annuals. Both bands have sweet pop down pretty well with glint of jazzy classic rock. Company of Thieves is kind of like Silversun Pickups and Regina Spektor with a backing band. Worth checking into, but I figure most people won't have super strong opinions about them either way. But vocalist Genevieve Schatz can flat-out sing, so that's a plus. The album from Company of Thieves,
Ordinary Riches is out now. Good tracks include "Oscar Wilde" and "Under The Umbrella."

I know that's an old Annuals track, but it's cool. Tour dates & Rushmore-inspired vid of "Oscar Wilde" after the jump...
