Peaking Lights

Can we count Madison as local? Probably not, but I will anyways. The latest "local" (or at least Midwest) group to get some attention is the electronic duo Peaking Lights, and it is for good reason. Their latest LP, 936, is out now on Not Not Fun and it is a great LP that searches for the middle ground between ambient noise and pop music. And guess what, it almost comes close to finding it! The album is hot with music nerds/blogger types right now, but I hope it reaches a bigger audience, as it really is a compelling record. Read a full review and listen to a track HERE.
