Chicago-based indie rock outfit have been flirting with mainstream success for more than a decade and perhaps eighth studio effort “Keepsakes of the Interior” will be the record to push this talented four-piece over the top. Filligar were selected by the United States Department of State as cultural ambassadors and have toured the world representing American music through the Arts Envoy Program. Those experiences have influenced the music on his 11-track release.

Filligar CDFilligar are comprised of siblings Johnny Mathias (guitar), Pete Mathias (drums) and Teddy Mathias (bass), along with pal Casey Gibson (keyboards), and they’ve honed their chemistry over the years. Made up entirely of original tunes, “Keepsakes of the Interior” is a thoroughly enjoyable album that already has spawned a pair of terrific singles in opener “Motor Shines” and “White Light Rose.”

Other standouts include “Truth & Anger,” “Hurricane Entertainment,” “Riverblind,” “Established in Baltimore” and sprawling set closer “The Vandal & the Godsend.” If you have yet to experience Fillgar’s music, here’s a chance to remedy that. (Jeffrey Sisk)
