Happy Friday everyone! I'm fortunate to not have any classes on Fridays, so I spent this afternoon listening to some albums I recently found on Bandcamp. My favorite so far is from a group called SNOWMINE, out of Brooklyn, New York. The album is called LAMINATE PET ANIMAL, and was actually released way back in… Continue reading Band of the Day: SNOWMINE
I'm a sucker for indie rock, and when I heard about Asker via City Pages, I knew I had to check it out! Asker is made up of three guys who went to college together here in the Twin Cities. Rumor has it they met in theology class at St. Thomas, and the rest is… Continue reading Band of the Day: Asker
I got an e-mail from a guy named Daniel (can I call you Dan?), telling me about his band, Filbert, and their soon-to-debut "Central Valley Commute". I thought, sounds solid! How could I pass up a band with the name Filbert? Anyway, upon clicking the attached links, I discovered this. I like the folk/popish fusion,… Continue reading Fresh Music: Filbert
I coerced my lovely mum to take me to the Electric Fetus today, because I heard they were having a garage sale. If that in itself sounds exiting, you just wait! We found some super cheap CDs outside, then headed in because there was live music. I love the inside of this place. It's so… Continue reading Electric Fetus & The Farewell Circuit

Because it was devoted to local high school bands. I of course set myself an alarm so I wouldn't miss a beat (ha), and it didn't disappoint!… Continue reading Wrap Up of High School Rockers
I posted about this a month ago, when I first read about it. Tonight, tune in at 6pm central time to 89.3 the Current, an offspring of MPR. The Local Show will be featuring several high school musicians, including John Mark Nelson. I'm so amped for this.
Vows is a group that I discovered only recently, right here on WordPress. They are a dream pop duo, and have released one album, called Winter's Grave (listen here.) Even better, they offer their music on tape, for all you retro lovers. They're in the process of mixing their sophomore album, not sure when it'll be out.… Continue reading Fresh Music: Vows
Love the background to this song. And their voices never cease to move me. Slower than other songs, but if you pay attention to the lyrics it makes sense. Sad, but adorable. Another goodie.
