Sam Prekop: So Good.
Posted at 11:23 PM

Saw the Sam Prekop Band last night. Archer Prewitt, Chad Taylor, Josh Abrams and Sam.

So good. I was in awe, and completely taken by it.

Musicians. No ironic chatter, or haircuts, or flash-in-the-pan hype machine pollitics. Just amazing music.

I am so inspired by their craft, patience, humility and finesse.

Absolutely Essential Factory Floor Listening:

01. Sam Prekop - Self-titled
02. Sam Prekop - Who’s Your New Professor?


(Please forgive the awkward white borders. They will make sense soon enough.)

Draplin, you redesigning the site to be non-factory color spec? White with a little grey and maybe orange or red for emphasis? Possibly styling it after the “Thank you for commenting” page? You realize that this will rattle the design world to its foundations; wars will be fought, kingdoms will fall, virgins will be sacrificed and locusts will appear…

A bit of googling doesn’t reveal anything too explanatory on the style of music made by the Sam Prekop Band; they seem to hit Chicago once in a while, so if I hear the name bandied about I’ll give them a checking.

What, if you could sum it up in a submission box, is their stuff like?

Naz, thanks. I read Gapers Block once in a while, but must have missed the profile.
