Here's one of my favorites from this year. DK and I will take it from here...
Here's a cut from the Minneapolis natives' new album.
Okay, that was fun but STOP WHAT YOU'RE DOING AND PLAY THIS.
Lizzo's new album just came out. I'm thinking I'll be picking it up.
It's been a while since we've heard from these boyos, and It's been a while since I posted a video. A big congratulations (and thanks for a good guest dj week) goes out to the pirate.
Apropos of nothing (other than listening yesterday): Is Fog's "Pneumonia" the best song to come out of Minneapolis since Purple Rain (and disallowing any later Prince)? Listen and decide for yourself (Lyrics contain profanities):
"The casserole was good and the drives were so nice. Welcome to the worst part of your life."
I'd also entertain notions that "Check Fraud" (vocal version) and "What-A-Day Day" by the same artist could be nominated, but by gum does that turntable solo kick ass and flip genres. Basically, it's a Neil Young-type ballad with record scratches for drums and guitar solo. I saw Broder play this once at First Ave, after I had become familiar with the album. I was mesmerized.
i admitted this elsewhere recently, but i just got into my first replacements album last week. you don't need to say it...
according to the description, this was recorded in "an attic in south minneapolis". based on that description, there's 4:1 odds i've been in that attic before.
just got back from minneapolis. i know everyone likes to talk crap about the current, but if i had it here, i might listen to something other than WBEZ and my ipod.
this was the only song i really had in my head to play this week, but the hitman went ahead and played him recently. i'm gonna go ahead and ignore it, and play this track anyway as i'm driving up to the cities today.
appropriate lead-in and send-off as well...
