Doomtree record massive Daytrotter session
The Twin Cities is continuing its total domination of the Daytrotter site with yet another session by local artists posted today. Doomtree members Dessa, Sims, Cecil Otter, and Mike Mictlan traveled down to the Illinois recording studio to track a massive 12-song session.
"They come from a city, like many of us Midwest dwellers, that's gratifying and beautiful, but often overlooked because of the many ways it's not like New York or Los Angeles," writes Daytrotter contributor Sean Moeller. "They've known people and they've been people who have been overlooked just as badly and they've taken their responses to all of it and churned them into highly literate, cunningly specific, sincere and sharp as hell pieces of prose that they then apply to beats that somehow bear the same characteristics."
