Hailing from Baraboo, Wisconsin, the (now) five members of PHOX are preparing to release their second album — a follow-up to 2014’s self-titled debut released via Partisan Records.

In the race to that release, PHOX are launching a US tour that begins at the 9:30 Club on Wednesday, Jan. 25. The alternative folk group — consisting of Jason Krunnfusz, Monica Martin, Matthew Holmen, Matteo Roberts, and Davey Roberts — are probably best known for their single 1936.

Hands down, the best album of 2006 came from a new wave quintet out of Sweden. The Sounds burst onto the American indie rock scene with their second album, Dying to Say This to You.

Dying to Say This to You won a wide audience for the band’s lead vocalist Maja Ivarsson and her talented bandmates — Félix Rodríguez (guitar), Jesper Anderberg (keyboards, piano, guitar), Johan Bengtsson (bass), and Fredrik Blond (drums). And The Sounds remember well what a great album it was, so they have embarked on a 10th anniversary Dying to Say This to You tour of the United States. That tour stops at the 9:30 Club on Monday, Nov. 28, and you can win tickets to go see the show!

Watch the official music video for “Song with a Mission” from Dying to Say This to You by The Sounds on YouTube:
