Still working on the name. Cheers to our new traveling music segment. Today's tunes come from the Austin of the Midwest: Minneapolis. Hand-picked by the playlist pundit, X-Files aficionado and sultan of sarcasm, Hannah Varn.
"A Midwest Hip-Hop Collective", Doomtree, already well loved by the Twin Cities, is beginning to catch the eye of the nation. Be ready for them to be everywhere, and soon.
Minneapolis is all about the live show. Our latest obsession has been Poliça, a band that puts on an incredible performance both on and off their album.
In true collaborative MPLS fashion, the founders of Poliça were also a part of the Twin Cities super-group, Gayngs, which featured, among others, Bon Iver's Justin Vernon and several members of the aforementioned Doomtree.
Haven't had enough? A group of kids from a North Minneapolis YMCA, Y.N. Rich Kids, have taken the internet by storm with their annoyingly catchy song, "Hot Cheetos and Takis".
