After looking at the tracklist of Chad Valley‘s (aka Hugo Manuel) recent album Young Hunger, you might think he was going for an indie music equivalent of Dr. Dre’s The Chronic in assembling a cast of indie music greats. Twin Shadow, El Perro del Mar, Active Child and others make for a star-studded collaborative work that is sure to part any Michigan clouds. “I Owe You” balances Valley’s and Twin Shadow’s engulfing vocals, while “My Girl” flutters with an electro pop bounce. The album is filled with pulsing synth, tropical pop and harmonies that translate into bursting summer anthems. Want to see all of that live and in person this Friday at the Pike Room in Pontiac? Giveaway details below:
I Owe You This ft Twin Shadow
My Girl ft Glasser
Chad Valley is a great act in his own right, but the trio of openers makes this an even more must-see night of music. Ghost Beach has been burning up the Hype Machine charts with “Miracle”, Salt and The Sea recently caught my ear with an excellent Stranglers cover and I’ve already mentioned my love of Detroit’s own Phantasmagoria many a time.
