The White Whales
If Coldplay's Chris Martin fronted Frightened Rabbit and grew up in Minnesota, the end result would approach that of local quintet the White Whales' excellent debut album, Lakestate. Frontman Matthew Schufman's voice swerves delightfully between immaculate crooning and pained howling throughout. The band is equally irresistible whether blasting barrel-chested rock found on the rousing "Babe the Blue Ox" or wading in placid sonic waters of album closer "Do Not Let Me Go." With Squares, the Persian Leaps, and Broken Bicycles. (Photo by Eric Hall)
