    cLOUDDEAD: S/T

    Married to the Mob - Minneapolis's Spymob hook up with N*E*R*D*

    Popular music in America has entered a new renaissance, and, people, it's baaaad. Consumer capitalism, for all its intrinsic faults, spent the better part of the past century funding some ridiculous experiments in aesthetic commerce, including a li...

    The Top 40 You've Never Heard Of - Minneapolis hosts a marathon of Avant-Garde music

    Four percussionists sitting in rolling office chairs cluster around a huge concert bass drum in the center of the stage. Without warning they break formation and whiz around like chimps on Red Bull, playing everything in their paths, including smal...

    Pure Funk for Now People - A band called !!! plays music from the other eighties

    Let's face it: 1979 is so 1994. 1983 is the new now. Music critics from the New York Times to Entertainment Weekly are all heralding electro aesthetics that stem from the decade of decadence, crediting all the glitz to artists like Miss Kittin, Pla...

    Buzz Band - O Rock, where is thy sting? The Hives have the answer.

    On first listen to the Hives' new album Veni Vidi Vicious, it seems for a lingering moment that the Kinks and Ramones have been jointed and then drained through a vintage white-noise funnel, forming some kind of hissing-hot punk-rock chowder. When ...

    Quiet Time - Embracing the inner mellow with Wendy Lewis of Redstart

    Minneapolis can feel like the smallest big city in the world. Or the biggest small city. Either way, its Midwestern spirit keeps things tight, and the insular vibe trickles down to our art community: I mean, it's no secret that the local music scen...
