Lucille Furs

The “Hypnotic Pandemonium” of Lucille Furs has been alternately described as “poetic rhythm,” “sophisticated and mellow” and “dream beat-pop.” The group describes themselves simply as “baroque pop.”

The Music Manual UK describes them as “one of the hottest offerings to come out of Chicago.”

In the field of psychedelic rock, they are unique in their refusal to let the vibe take precedence over the virtue of the song. Peeling the layers might reveal a thinly veiled criticism of over-reporting and under-researching (“The Fawn of Teal Deer”) or the loneliness of voyeurism (“Carrie & Judy”).
