New Track: Sidewalk Chalk – “Grocery List”



Our friends over at Revive Music premiered the new single from Chicago’s Sidewalk Chalk today. Give it a spin below. The track recalls the funk of Parliament and jilted drums of J Dilla while showcasing the band’s evolution of hip-hop, soul, and jazz. The album, Leaves, drops February 25th, and the 8-piece has just announced two album release shows: 2/21 at Chicago’s Double Door & 2/22 at NYC’s DROM.
