Can you believe this? On April 22nd, the O'Malleys were recording two of our favorite (hard to pick just two) Juliana Hatfield hits - "Universal Heart-Beat" & "I See You" - with the slamming rhythm section of
Ted Ansani and Mike Zelenko of Material Issue inside Electrical Audio with Steve Albini all on 2" tape for our upcoming @americanlaundromatrecords 7" double single tribute to incredible @julianahatfield !!!
To make it even more special, our great friend and remarkable artist Nicole Anguish of Daykamp Creative is designing the artwork so you know it's going to look stellar.
Let us tell you, it sounds amazing to our ears. This whole process of getting to play Juliana's songs while sitting in the MI pocket (Ted and Mike play like brothers - the telepathy and feel....)
has been a major thrill and honor for us. Thank you to everyone involved; we still can't even believe this is real and look forward to sharing more details over the next couple of months before the release.

Wanna hear some additional exciting news? The Safes are thrilled to announce that we will be releasing a 7" record in Spain on Action Weekend Records and Bickerton Records this fall!

Did you see Tim Hinely's Tasty Waves review at Daggerzine?

3Hive -Todd
"Chicago's The Safes play sugary-sweet garage pop tunes that are a sure cure for any sour mood. Their new album, Tasty Waves, is 22 minutes of warm, summery-pop bliss"

Poprockrecord says about Tasty Waves and the band...
The Safes follow a familiar trajectory in band development, from raucus rock and roll origins to a more refined sound as we get closer to the present. “Deception” from 2006’s Well Well Well showcases the fun, almost live feel of their early work. But fast forward to the 2013-16 period and the sound has shifted to more melody and harmony on tracks like “Live Life Like You Want to Live” with its almost plaintive single note piano solo. The basic elements are actually all still there, they’ve just been rejigged in importance, as can be seen from the great rock and roll guitar intro to “I Would Love You,” which also features a distinctive keyboard solo, this time on organ. Which brings us to the present and The Safes’ fabulous new record Tasty Waves. Sounding like a more punky version of Apples in Stereo, the band aces the first single and opening track “Hometown” with its chiming guitar and swinging hookiness. Here comes a serious ear worm infection! The whole album is pretty strong, though I’d single out “Streets and Sanitation” for special mention with its insistent strummy-ness, rumbly lead line and nice horn motifs.

Here's AbsolutePowerPop.Blogspot Tasty Waves review from Oct 10:
The Safes-Tasty Waves. I've always enjoyed these unreconstructed power poppers from Chicago, but their latest is a leap forward in songcraft and their best to date. Reminiscent of The Lolas and other similar early 2000s bands, they also draw on influences such as Rockpile and Guided by Voices to produce a bunch of quick-hitting melodic gems (no track here tops the 3-minute mark). They're all fun, but special marks go to "Hometown", "Crystal Ball", and "Mind of its Own".

East coast we're coming for you riding Tasty Waves and playing with tons of great bands and friends! Check the shows page for all the Sept, Oct and Nov tour dates details

Did you read John Borack's review in Goldmine Magazine re:
"One of the cooler things about being a music buff is discovering a band that’s flown under your radar for many years. Such is the case with me and The Safes, a Chicago-area combo led by the O’Malley brothers – Frankie, Michael and Patrick – that has drawn comparisons to Guided by Voices, The Apples In Stereo, Brendan Benson, Fountains of Wayne and even the Kinks. I’ve been listening to their 2014 release,Record Heat, and it’s a short (barely 25 minutes) 10-song effort that can be seen – and heard – as some sort of amalgamation of all the above comparisons, with a garagey swagger and super-sweet lead vocals (courtesy of Frankie, I believe) that are a bit reminiscent of The Singles’ Vince Frederick. “I Would Love To” and “Know it All” are both power poppin’ sureshots, and The Safes deftly avoid any of the clichés often inherent in the genre. Check out their 2006 effortWell Well Wellas well; 10 more cool ditties with sharp hooks and some great song titles: “Cool Sounds are Here Again” and “Phone Book Full of Phonies.”

Thanks to Eric Davidson of CMJ for the video premiere of The SAFES 'Hopes Up, Guard Down"on Monday April 7 directed by our friend Mike Hindert.
"Chicago’s modern rock musical rep rests primarily on Touch & Go’s long post-rock legacy, and deservedly so. But since the late-70s, the Windy City has also been a consistent fount of solid power pop, from the big bang of Cheap Trick to awesome also-rans like Epicycle and the Vacant Lot, regional warhorses like the Elvis Brothers.
The Safes have continued along that line for a few years now. A trio of brothers (Frankie, Patrick and Michael O’Malley), they credit their dad with having a home full of cool classic rock records, and they smelt loads of exhumed ’60s garage and pop goodness into their bright sound. Their third full-length, Record Heat—recorded by Jim Diamond (White Stripes, The Sonics), Jason Ward (Arcade Fire) and Patrick O’Malley—will be out April 29 on Wee Rock Records, and we’ve got a video premiere for the single, Hopes Up, Guard Down, right here. Let’s just say the motorcycle bandit who zooms through this mini-movie is no chicken."

On Tuesday April 29, Wee Rock Records brings you The SAFES new LP Record Heat
Available in White-hot 12 Inch vinyl LPs, compact discs, and digital varieties
