Playing pure pop music isn't always as commercially rewarding as it should be, but The Redwalls' music doesn't seem influenced by the modern marketplace anyway. Last year's self-titled CD finds the Chicago band drawing from as many pop and rock eras as possible, with a slickly appealing sound that should translate well to outdoor summer stages. Click the link above to hear The Redwalls, recorded live in concert from WXPN and Wiggins Park in Philadelphia on July 11, 2008.

The latest installment in WXPN's annual XPoNential Music Festival offered a broad cross-section of modern music, from beloved veterans (Alejandro Escovedo, Dar Williams) to up-and-comers (The Redwalls, The War on Drugs), with a headlining performance by critically acclaimed English singer-songwriter Beth Orton.
