One of our favorite new(er) indie bands on the scene is On An On, whose dream pop sounds are anything but snooze-worthy. Their debut album, Give In, has been described as “intriguing, ethereal swatches of sounds, mixing retro-sounding harmonies, shimmering synth, and buzzy guitar,” as well as a “haunting yet beautifully bare album…a textural journey over new terrain.”
If you’re not yet sold, take a listen to the whole glorious kit-n-caboodle here, and read a fun, quick Q & A with frontman Nate Eiesland courtesy of Jonk Music here.
The band will be in Madison for a show at the RSR Bar tonight (Thursday, April 25). Tickets are still available here and at the door. Don’t miss it!

Josh Ritter‘s Capitol Theater show is coming up fast! There’s still time to buy tickets to his April 24 performance featuring Sea Wolf, and grab that free album download—such a great deal!
If you didn’t catch Josh when he was live on WPR last week, you can have a listen to his intriguing streaming interview with 45 North’s Anne Strainchamps here. The guy has some fantastic perspective—no wonder he can write the way that he does!
Hope to see you all at the show.

Fans of Baltimore’s wizard of electro revelry already know what incredible live shows he creates, but they rarely get as close of a look into the method behind his madness as in the debut installment of Q2 Music‘s quickie documentary series featuring artists in their studios. Take a peek inside Dan Deacon’s chamber of tunes and ‘toons here.
He is set to open the rescheduled Animal Collective show at the Orpheum Theater on October 16. Tickets go on sale today at 10am.
