    Today, Chicago’s The Kickback have released their sophomore full-length, Weddings & Funerals. Apple Music and Spotify users can stream it in full below.

    The album follows their 2015 debut, Sorry All Over the Place, and clocks in at 10 tracks. It was produced by Grammy-winning producer, engineer, and mixer Dennis Herring (Modest Mouse, Elvis Costello). Frontman Billy Yost has described the record as a “one-sided view of someone trying to work through a divorce,” as it was written in the wake of his recent marital split.

    However, as our very own Randall Colburn writes in his effusive review of the album, the music “resonates as something more upbeat” and features an “eccentric” tone. “There’s a manic quality to the songs, the sense that Yost is ping-ponging along a spectrum of emotions as complementary as they are disparate.”
