Slow Pulp is an American indie rock band from Madison, Wisconsin, currently based in Chicago, Illinois.
Slow Pulps newest album Yard, debuted on  September 29th, 2022. They then embarked on a lengthy North American tour supporting Death Cab for Cutie and the Postal Service.

On Yard, Slow Pulp tackles the process of becoming comfortable with yourself — a balancing act with learning to trust, love, and lean on others. Building upon the sticky hooks and dreamy rock seen across their discography, “Doubt” is evident of Slow Pulp aiming bigger than ever before.

Through listless guitar, weepy americana, a raw-to-the-bone piano ballad, and belt-along worthy pop-punk, Yard is a lightning-in-a-bottle synthesis of what has made Slow Pulp one of the most beloved indie groups in recent memory. In many ways, their success is rooted in their decade-plus long friendships. Guitarist/producer Henry Stoehr and drummer Teddy Mathews attended elementary school together in Madison, and met bassist Alex Leeds through a local music program. Massey entered the fold in college, and the group’s early work quickly gained traction across YouTube channels and blogs. In 2018, the band relocated to Chicago; and, by 2019, they were on the road with Alex G, crafting their debut full-length record, Moveys.

Within Slow Pulp, trust between members is evident in the playful collaboration that remains core to their creative process. Across Yard, they nestle comfortably into pockets of nuance, impressions, contradictions—sonics and lyrics finessed together to bottle the specific tension of a feeling you’ve never quite been able to find the right words for. Perhaps this spawns from the band’s own shared history and chemistry; in various ways, the four of them grew up—are still growing up—together.
Free Range is the stage name of American indie folk musician Sofia Jensen. Jensen is originally from Scandinavia, but grew up in the Rogers Park neighborhood of Chicago. Under the Free Range moniker, Jensen has released one full-length album. On December 7, 2022, Jensen announced plans to release her first album, titled Practice. The album was released on February 17, 2023. Jensen began writing for the album when they were fifteen years old alongside their live drummer Jack Henry.
