Twin Peaks are the next rock hopefuls from Chicago. By which I mean, it's the local act that is suddenly getting more attention in the British press than in the Tribune. The last group to garner such buzz was the Smith Westerns, and there's a lot of similarity there. Both groups veil acute Anglophilic songwriting and arena aspirations with good ol' American fuzz and scuzz. Twin Peaks recorded their debut, Sunken, in a basement. The next album will likely be produced by Butch Vig and sound like Surfer Blood. See the quartet intimately at Schubas before it inevitably hits the festival circuit next summer.
