Husky Rescue

Husky Rescue

Lots of good bands from all over the world in town this week. Tonight we have Gnarls Barkley @ First Avenue and Husky Rescue @ Turf Club. I don't have a ticket to Gnarls so we'll focus on the latter.

The Minty Fresh label has been on a roll lately, having introduced many great new artists this year. I'm really liking Klee, Prototypes, Bettie Serveert, and The Living Blue to name a few. Just today my friend Amy turned me onto another Minty Fresh band: Husky Rescue. The 5-piece hails from Helsinki, Finland, and features sensual vocalist Reeta-Leena Korhola. The band has a very atmospheric, ambient, relaxed, electronica, pop-type sound. In my opinion, perfect for work or to chill out to anytime. Give these tunes a spin and see what you think.

I just downloaded their album "Country Falls" via Emusic today and really love it. I knew I had heard "New Light Of Tomorrow" somewhere before... turns out it was featured in The Sopranos epsiode # 73 from last season called "Johnny Cakes".

The band is scheduled to stop in the Current's studio this afternoon @ 4:00 pm CST. Check out the in-studio archive, they just added Smoosh and The Futureheads.

Husky Rescue is playing Lollapalooza this weekend.

Minty Fresh is offering a free download of "Hell = Other People" from the upcoming Bettie Serveert album "Bare Stripped Naked" in the stimuli section. Check it out.

Klee's new album "Zwischen Himmel und Erde" drops 8/4/06 in Deutschland. Album title translated: "Between Heaven and Earth". Hopefully Minty Fresh will release it here in the US soon as well...

See ya @ Turf,

P.S. I'd imagine Husky Rescue's album could also come in handy for those "romantic moments" with your special someone...

The Sarcastic Idiocy Forum fully endorses Gary Glitter as the next ruler of a free and democratic Cuba!

LOVED this album. I like to think of it as a hyped up nap - subconsciously checking out while your body is joyusly floating. Minty Fresh does have some stellar stuff coming out - and more to come (recently signed Suburban Kids With Biblical Names and ex-Velocity girl, Sarah Shannon). I totally agree to skip Gnarls and hit HR. Much more of a lasting quality with this group, as opposed to a fad (albeit catchy).
