Chicagonanigans: Sam Prekop w/ Laetitia Sadier and Daniel Higgs.

Sam Prekop is performing this weekend in Chicago, with Stereolab/Monade front woman Laetitia Sadier! We chatted with Laetitia early this year, in promotion of her debut solo record The Trip. She passed along a warm hello to Sam and the gang at the time... little did we all know she'd soon collaborate once again with the man himself!

Sam will be performing his modular synthesizer material, as heard on last year's Old Punch Card album, for only the second time. His first performance of this material was at June's Neon Marshmallow Festival (video below).

Also performing this weekend at the Empty Bottle, Daniel Higgs of Lungfish fame.

Reels: "Dois".

What do Krautrock and Samba de Brasil have in common? Reels.

2012's Dois showcases some rather obscure Samba from militant Brazil in the 60s, including Izio Gross, Alberto Mota and Neyde Fraga, and Bola Sete, alongside - often interwoven with - original blues-tinged guitar leads, percussion and vocals, allowing an altogether original take on the Mashup, Garagerock and Krautrock subgenres. The album is being offered free of charge here on KLLK.

Did we mention it's extremely danceable? Well, it is. You've been warned.
