All Minnesota. All The Time.
I have been working on a fairly expansive all Minnesota playlist today, and this is what I’ve got so far. All Minnesota, All The TIme. It’s on spotify, so i apologize if that doesn’t work for you. Its a pretty eclectic mix, I didn’t try to load it up with any one genre. I avoided some of the already well known artists. (Sorry Prince) Let me know who’s not in...
A very cool instrumental track. The all instrumental LP in which this track is on was released today and can be bought here: http://fieldwerk.com/?cat=3
Andrew Bird’s new album, Break It Yourself, is now streaming at npr. Go check it out. Very Chill music. http://www.npr.org/2012/02/26/147047574/first-listen-andrew-bird-break-it-yourself The album is due out the beginning of March.
Local Minnesota Band “Night Moves” just got signed by major record label Domino Records. Here are the two tracks that they have on their bandcamp site, You can download both there for free. Look for their debut album out sometime in the middle of 2012. Upd: apparently they took both songs off their bandcamp site. You can still listen to both of them on spotify though.
Seriously, where do all these Eau Claire bands come from?

Fun. One of my favorite bands is getting ready to release a new album. They have gained a lot of attention for their single We Are Young. The album isn’t released yet but they have it in its entirety on their website, and I like it a lot so far. Their first album was also excellent and I’d recommend it to almost anyone.
The Asteroid's Galaxy Tour
