Succession I Guess
What they've said about 'Succession, I Guess' : 'These Chicago-based indie rockers are making their mark on the music scene. Their latest release, Succession, I Guess, is like a trip through music history making it difficult to classify their sound as anything but ecletic...we'd all benefit from encouraging these young lads to keep doing what they do, frankly, to see where their electic tastes and influences might lead them.' -Way Cool Music 'The best of the bunch: Filligar, a Chicago-based quartet featuring brothers Pete, Teddy, and Johnny Mathias, and fourth-wheel Casey Gibson... Filligar is remarkably mature. When we asked our friend Andrew to write ivyTunes for us, he agreed on one condition: that after picking the best (those were Filligar, Vampire Weekend and The Main Drag, sort of), he'd get to do one final hatepost. It takes a lot of guts to submit your heartfelt music for public evaluation; naturally, we need to betray those hopes and dreams without further delay.' -Ivy Gate 'In it's latest album, 'Succession, I Guess,' Chicago-based Filligar projects a sweetly affecting charm that's hard to ignore -- and, curiously, hard to dislike... 'Succession, I Guess' offers a set of lyrically smart songs accompanied by satisfying keyboard- and guitar-driven melodies... It really is about succession: the growing chain of time and people and places and things. Alternately breezy and brainy, the album is a tremendous success.' -Allison Ruderman, The Dartmouth.
