On Gringo Star’s latest, liquid melodies cascade through air like a waterfall in zero gravity, brothers Nicholas and Peter Furgiuele and cohort Chris Kaufmann out-of-body—floating apparitions of a band glancing down as their corporeal manifestations radiate celestial blues and psychedelic garage bangers, gritty R&B shuffles and spaghetti-Western weirdness. Floating Out to See could—and should—be the soundtrack to Tarantino’s first sci-fi film.
As the album’s title suggests, Gringo Star are insouciant explorers, tossing the paddles overboard and drifting on the currents of their lackadaisical curiosity across a rippling sonic ocean, out to the far edges of rock & roll. Shot pulsing from a vintage Leslie speaker, their guitars, keys and vocals pirouette across the astral plane, the psychoactive ingredients of their echo-slathered, doo-wop-indebted indie gems. Santo & Johnny, The Stooges, Ritchie Valens, Marc Bolan, Percy Faith, Sam Cooke, the men working on the chain gang—uh! ah!—they’re all here, their electric ghosts reaching across time, tapping Gringo Star on the shoulder like the crossroads devil to Robert Johnson, bestowing secrets, passing torches.

Cold. Alone. Desperate. That is how thousands of Chicagoans feel during the winter. For those who are homeless or lacking adequate clothing, winter by the lake can be brutal, and at times, hopeless. Warm, Safe & Sound is an opportunity for local bands and their fans to do something positive for these people.
The concept is simple, yet highly effective: five Chicago-based rock n' roll bands ask their fans to donate coats or sweaters at the door in exchange for a reduced cover. That clothing is then given to a local organization, which distributes it to those who need it. This year's Warm, Safe & Sound features five dynamic and buzz-worthy modern rock bands, The Locals, The Bright White, Ace Reporter, Hard Kiss and Young Distractions.
