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".

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...
