Graduating high school early to pursue music, The Orwells have been rocking the Chicago suburbs since 2009. The release of Remember When on Autumn Tone Records jettisoned them into the spotlight, eventually leading to their appearance on The Late Show With David Letterman. Like the many apartment complexes sprouting up around Capitol Hill, The Orwells are rising fast. Now, they have been scheduled to play at the Bonaroo Music Festival and have finished producing Disgraceland, their second album, on Canvasback/Atlantic Records with assistance from Dave Sitek, Chris Coady, and Jim Abbiss. You’ll have to wait until June 3rd to grab their new stuff, but you can sneak a preview of two new, doubleplusgood Orwells songs, “Let It Burn” and “Dirty Sheets”, plus the current single, “Righteous One”, in this session recorded live in The Roadhouse with Greg Vandy:
