Many frequenting Minneapolis shows of late are familiar with the sex-laden "sea-punk" trio Chelsea Boys. And by "familiar," we're talking getting jabbed by a guitar or splashed with sex juice, AKA sweat, during one of their rambunctious live sets. Since the Boys' dissolution in August, songwriter ...

In a hard blow to the kitschy dance-rock scene, the Onion's A.V. Club is reporting that funk-fueled electro band Chelsea Boys are going their separate ways so bandmate Josh Atwood can focus on being a dad.

Chelsea Boys (self-released)
Fresh from a nearly month-long tour, Chelsea Boys (reviewed in this week's print edition) and Buffalo Moon are playing a free show tomorrow night at Cause (I still call it Stinky's) in support of Teenage Moods' new tape release which we can only assume is titled Adorably Accomplished Garage Rock ...

A couple days ago we wrote about the Justin Bieber song "U Smile" that a producer had taken and slowed down into a half hour of smoothed-out ambience, and that everyone seemed to enjoy quite a bit. So we tried it on some local music to see if we could make our own.
When we wrote about the brand-new Buffalo Moon back in April we expected their halo to grow with the mercury, and it absolutely has.
