This is good, this new album, Family & Friends, by the Chicago's a series of interlocking stories about various family relationships, not all of them very admirable. (One song, "Goddammit" has a bigamist as its main character, juggles a 17-year-old girl and a 30-something wife, both believe they are married to him.)

Interesting, it's produced by Yoni from Why? plus a guy named Advanced Battery Base, who is also, in his indie-pop guise, known as Casiotone for the Painfully Alone.

"The Whip," a song about a UFC fighter, is the best thing on the album, but the video is for "Flutes".
