Essential New Music: Minneapolis Band Poliça w/ Mike Noyce Of Bon Iver [First Listen, Free Download]
Hopefully like me you’re a big fan of XRT’s The Big Beat hosted by Marty Lennartz. A month and half ago he was playing a song that had me rushing into the studio asking what he just played. It ended up being the advance cd of a group out of Minneapolis called [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Poliça[/lastfm] (pronounced Po-Lisa). He lent me the album and it has been on constant play at home, on my player and in my car ever since. I’ve always been a sucker for atmospheric music and every track from Poliça’s debut shows so much hope and promise in this relatively new group’s career.
They’ll be performing this Wednesday Night at Lincoln Hall and I suggest you catch them now or you might be clamoring with throngs of people during one of the many music festivals this summer.
