    Indie rock out of Minneapolis. RIYL Copeland, From Indian Lakes, Now Now, Valise. Never really see love for this criminally overlooked band. Of Brighter Days was my AOTY last year, and you can currently name your own price for it on Bandcamp. Looks like the gears are beginning to turn for the next album cycle, too. Let's talk about them!

    edit: album thread for IIFOIIC can be found here

    Regular Prestigious

    I like this! That song sounds like it could be a Mutemath song! Not complaining though.

  3. @Richard yeah! I've not really ever considered that, but the two bands share quite a few characteristics for sure.
  4. That's a great RIYL. I will definitely check this out.

  19. Nice! The new one admittedly hasn’t stuck with me as much I anticipated, but I’m gonna throw it back into rotation once fall comes around and see if it clicks. The prerelease tracks were just not very representative of what the record ended up being lol
  20. Upcoming tour setlist per their IG story:

    Soft White
  21. Cody Prestigious

    To anyone who lives in MPLS, we’re playing a show with them next month and y’all should come

  22. Bummer. I believe this leaves only Trevor and Cameron as official members

  23. coleslawed

    Eat Pizza

    bummer, dude kills it on guitar.
    i’m pretty sure the Bartlett’s do that majority of the writing, but this is still a bit of a bummer.
