Starting today, each week I’m going to spotlight a cool indie band that either will be playing in the area, or has already performed here recently.

With that, I’d like to introduce to you, the instrumental Seattle band Chung Antique.

The band was in Great Falls on June 30 for a free show at Machinery Row. I sadly missed the show, but I’ve since been listening to their stuff quite a bit to make up for it!

Chung Antique started performing together in 2009 as a trio of musicians, Mike, Charlie and Whitney, who were attending The Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington.

The group cut their teeth on the local house-show circuit before releasing its self-released demo “Go Poetry!”

Now based out of Seattle, the trio recorded its album “Sweater Weather” in late 2012, early 2013 and released it on the indie label “20 Sided Records” this past January.

It is the group’s first full-length album and the band is in the process of touring the Midwest this summer.

Seattle’s independent newspaper “The Stranger” said about the band,

Olympia transplants Chung Antique have quietly developed their meticulously performed, densely interwoven post-rock textures since forming in 2009 at The Evergreen State College. Relocating to Seattle in 2011, the three-piece has crafted something wholly expansive — certainly loud, but also complex and orchestral, appealing to fans of post-rock, math rock, and post-hardcore. Sweater Weather, their new LP on 20 Sided Records, culminates their bouncy, cyclical structures and sweeping emotionalism into its most polished and realized form yet.”

Then, here’s a documentary-style video showing the band’s process of recording their album. Check it out:
