Brain Idea

The title of Chicago band Brain Idea‘s latest EP, Cosmos Factory,  may scream Creedence Clearwater Revival, but the sounds within revive nothing but the best moments of the Flying Nun catalog, that venerable New Zealand indie label that brought us bands like the Clean, the Verlaines, the Bats, Tall Dwarfs and countless others. Five songs to make your heart swell and your shirt buttons pop open, sturdy yet vulnerable songs for contemplative times.
