Fun is pop music’s biggest payoff. But it takes a rare class of musicians to make it sexy – voluptuously groovy and driving forward with a dashingly kinetic thrust. Enter Autograf. It’s not that the Chicago trio makes dance music but more that its consummately funked-out, terminally chill and vibe-drenched song makes you dance. In the scale and sweep of Future Soup, its hype-magnet of an EP and string of singles, lies a burgeoning legacy that gleams with an irresistible, limb-unlocking power. And thanks to the party-purveyors at Collective Minds and the Kilo Lounge, you’ll get a live-and-direct, full-band helping of it on Wednesday, June 27 at the Kilo Lounge.
Here are five of Autograf’s choicest cuts to bump at your pre-game parties.
