  • Knox Hamilton plays Round 5 of the Showcase, Thursday at Stickyz.

North Little Rock's Knox Hamilton makes effervescent indie pop with rich vocal harmonies, propulsive rhythms and shimmering, chiming guitars.

It's largely upbeat, melodic stuff that recalls, say, a less electro-steeped Passion Pit or maybe Of Monsters and Men if that band were less inclined toward melodrama.

Check out Knox Hamilton's "Tom Joyce" for a good representation.
