Editors' pick

Midnight Kids


Editorial Review

Begin at the Black Cat for the monthly Second Saturdays show on the backstage featuring Midnight Kids and Casper Bangs. You liked the bands those people used to be in -- Apes and the Hard Tomorrows -- so you'll like their new bands. Both are being very generous with their music, too. Casper Bangs' excellent debut EP, which contains five jangly, wistful indie-pop is available for a "name your price" download over at Bandcamp. Meanwhile, Midnight Kids are offering their debut EP, "Basement Dreams," for free for a limited time at the same site. It's an appropriate title given the alternately murky and dreamy sound the band achieves.
