The Chicago band Their/They're/There fuse punk, prog and indie into a distinctive new hybrid. Members Evan Weiss, Mike Kinsella and Matthew Frank – all veterans of other indie-rock groups – show off their sharp dynamic with the tough vocals and interesting ska-meets-metal guitars of their new single, "Concession Speech Writer."

"This is the first song we ever wrote as a group," bassist Weiss tells Rolling Stone. "Oddly enough, it seems to be the most indicative of our styles and attitude as a band."

Their/They're/There's self-titled, six-track EP will be released on April 20th on Polyvinyl.

“Stillness Is the Move”

Dirty Projectors | 2009

A Wim Wenders film and a rapper inspired the Dirty Projectors duo David Longstreth and Amber Coffmanto write "sort of a love song." "We rented the movie Wings of Desire from Dave's brother's recommendation, and he had me go through it and just write down some things that I found interesting, and they made it into the song," Coffman said. As for the hip-hop connection, Longstreth explained, "The beat is based on T-Pain. We commissioned a radio mix of the song by the guy who mixes all of Timbaland's records, but the mix we made sounded way better, so we didn't use it."
