Kopecky Family Band caught our attention in the fall of 2012 with the release of Kids Raising Kids. And after countless listens it became one of my most listened to albums of the year and we placed it in HearYa’s Top 50 albums of 2012. Songs like My Way, Angry Eyes, Hope and The Glow get regular airplay in my house. The bridge section of The Glow in particular might be my favorite minute of anthemic indie-pop bliss to be released in 2012.
So when the Kopecky Family Band came through Chicago last October, we were excited to have them in for a HearYa Live Session. Here is the first video from the session – the rest is coming soon. Be sure to check them out as they headline Schubas this Saturday (1/26/13). It’ll be my first time seeing them in concert and I’ve heard nothing but great things about their energy on stage.
Note: You may have noticed a slow release cycle with our recent HearYa Live Sessions. I apologize for that. Know that we’ve been hard at work and have big plans for 2013. Next month we’re relocating SHIRK music + sound studios to a larger facility here in Chicago and ramping up our partnership with StubHub! as our official HearYa Live Session sponsor. Sessions with Patterson Hood and Bahamas are due to be released very soon.
