Live Review: Arctic Monkeys, Twin Peaks at Chicago’s The Riviera (9/23) – Just that ol’ time rock ‘n’ roll.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

September 23, 2013

Chicago’s archaic Riviera Theatre had its foundations rocked Monday night by two-and-a-half hours of loud, unapologetic rock ‘n’ roll from local favorites and recent CoSigned rockers Twin Peaks and the ever reliable Arctic Monkeys.

Tearing through favorites off their debut album, Sunken, Twin Peaks looked like they couldn’t be having more fun, business as usual for the teenage four piece. During blitzed out tracks like “Boomers” and “Natural Villain”, frontman Cadien Lake James controlled the venue with ease, gathering instrumental support from bandmates Jack Dolan, Clay Frankel, and Connor Brodner. The Chicago DIY scene has been and should continue to pay close attention to these guys.

Bathed in blue light, the UK foursome emerged from the sides of the stage, hands raised in the air to thank the packed house for coming out to party. Sticking mostly to newer and slower material off AM, the show had its lulls but also highlighted their new directions, specifically the album’s hip-hop drum beats and gritty desert rock influences. Of course, the biggest reaction was to the opening chords of “I Bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor”, a nostalgic cut that left the entire venue in the air.

Following slower cuts like Humbug single “Cornerstone” and AM’s “No. 1 Party Anthem”, the jumbly “Fluorescent Adolescent” brought the mood back into a swing, which helped grease up the eccentric funk of “Knee Socks”. As expected, the band waved their goodbyes, acting like a three song encore wasn’t about to happen. Nobody was fooled, the band played three more (two of them from AM, no less), and then it was really over. The number of fans that stayed hoping for another encore said plenty of the night’s success.

Video: Passion Pit – ‘The Reeling’, First Single From the Band’s debut album ‘Manners’

“The Reeling” is a song by American electronic band Passion Pit. It was released in May 2009 as the first single from the band’s debut album Manners. The song features background vocals from the PS22 Chorus. Generally well received by music critics, the single entered the Billboard Alternative Songs chart in September 2009. In the UK, the single originally peaked at #137, but was re-issued in January 2010, where it performed slightly better at #99. With this improved showing, the record company then re-issued “Sleepyhead” in March 2010.

A music video for the song premiered in April 2009. It depicts a carefree night on the town and uses ripped-paper visual effects. A remixed version of “The Reeling” was used on the trailer for the fourth season of Skins.

Lou Thomas of the BBC praised the song’s vocals and beats, and called it “unquestionably one of the greatest songs of 2009.” Emily Kendrick of This Is Fake DIY noted the song’s exuberance and compared it vocally to the Bee Gees. Louise Brailey of NME said the song’s opening “sounds weirdly like an old-school hardcore breakdown, before collapsing into starry disco-pop.” Mike Diver of Clash magazine said the song “combine elements of the purest pop with compositional playfulness.” Matthew Cole of Slant Magazine credits the song’s ability, along with album track “Moth’s Wings,” to combine decades worth of “party music” genres, including disco, house, rave, and 1980s rock. Zach Kelly of Pitchfork Media described the song as sweet and earnest, adding that listeners “won’t remember it the next morning, but it probably earned a grin the night before.” Andrzej Lukowski of Drowned in Sound called the song “quite annoying,” though he gave the album a favorable review overall.
