White Light Riot, No Bird Sing featured in this week's City Pages
Spring is always a busy time for album releases, and this is especially true in the Twin Cities. Bands seem to hunker down for the winter, clocking hours in rehearsal spaces and recording studios, only to emerge in April and May armed with new songs, new albums -- and sometimes new bands all together.
In the print edition of City Pages this week, we took a look at two local bands who are getting ready to release highly likeable, yet totally different new albums: Powerful indie rockers White Light Riot and moody hip-hop trio No Bird Sing.
