Clear the cobwebs
Boots - May or May Not
May or May Not, one of Chicago's best new pop bands (in a city thick with them), fires up the furnace, rolls up the rugs, buffs the banister to a high sheen, clears the cobwebs from the attic and throws itself a big ol' shack-shakin' house party. (And gets dirty all over again.) Guests include the rev and soar of the New Pornographers and the hooks and smarts of hometownies Office and The 1900s. "Boots" is a breathless song of spit and shine and kick, and slippy enough to stage drunk sock-sliding contests to.
For a limited time, you can download the band's new album, A Kaleidoscope of Egos for free from their website. I wrote about May or May Not's song "Bike" a year ago.
