Joining us for this Indie Rock Hit Parade live session is a real character. Los Angeles singer Mike Krol draws from his roots in graphic design to make punchy, electrifying power-punk. Over the course of four albums (the latest of which, Power Chords, was released at the beginning of this year on Merge), Krol has concocted blown-out anthems of heartbreak and joy. Before a show at Boot and Saddle earlier this year, Krol brought his band, bassist Allison Crutchfield (also of Swearin’, Waxahatchee and p.s. eliot), guitarists Graham Hunt and Sean Lango, and drummer Brian Granillo, to our studio to rip through a bunch of songs from Power Chords.
