Istvan and his Imaginary Band
Ahh, spring! The birds, the bees, imaginations running wild. Luckily, that’s a kid’s natural state. And Berwyn-based Istvan shares that childlike wonder. He’s just taller than most kids, and bearded. On his sophomore release, Sweet, Istvan appeals to the little punk in all of us, covering such relevant topics as “Too Much Stuff,” where he admits that it’s time to purge when you can’t even open the door to your bedroom. “Pajama Party” takes us on a Ramones-like romp with pizza and practical jokes. And just when I thought the whole album was a reflection of Istvan’s inner punk, along comes the warm and fuzzy “Mr. Moon’s Song.” This awesome kindie local is sure to thrill the four-and-up set, so check him out.
