For six long years, Chicago's Sybris has been touring in the Midwest and beyond. The band's brilliant second album, Into the Trees, was recorded at Pachyderm Studio (read: birthplace of Nirvana's In Utero) and was released last year on the indie label Absolutely Kosher. Sybris' sound has built over the years, with songs that range from Pavement-esque shuffling to unexpected bursts of great grungeitude. Singer Angela Mullenhour's divine voice is what makes the band truly unique, though: Her coy coo sounds like some weird, dreamy hybrid of Emily Haines (Metric) and Harriet Wheeler (The Sundays). The band is just now reaping moderate success, having scored a few choice opening slots and a place on the Lollapalooza lineup last year, so catch them while you can.
