In the fall of 2014, Chicago quartet Clearance released Catalog Nos., a compilation album that gathered all of the band's recorded output dating back to 2013. Listeners could be forgiven for thinking the assorted tunes originated decades earlier, however, since the group's jangly, indie-rock sound tends to conjure images of '90s acts like Pavement - a feel heightened by deadpan singer Mike Bellis' undeniable vocal resemblance to Stephen Malkmus. Clearance is currently gearing up for the September release of its debut full-length, Rapid Rewards (Tall Pat/Unsatisfied), an album that finds the mates sharpening and refining their time-traveling sound without straying too far from the established template. The Sidekicks and Nude Art also perform, and admission is free.
