Illinois: review on Pitchfork

Local, Philly-based band, Illinois, finally has their What the Hell Do I Know? EP reviewed on Pitchfork. I mention this band only because I know the lead singer and musician, Archie, who has been an on-and-off part of my church’s community for a few years now. The new EP has some of their best songs, but unfortunately the production quality is not as high as it could be. Illinois are one of the best live bands I have ever seen, and I’ve seen some of the best (including Arcade Fire this past May 5). They are currently touring with the Hold Steady after finishing a tour with the Kooks.
