The Dandelion War
The Dandelion War
"The Dandelion War successfully does the airy, Radiohead meets Sigur Ros thing, though not as long-winded. Like other bands in the genre, dynamics shift between multi-instruments, and strong beats provide a solid backdrop for the melodies. The vocals sometimes give way to the playing, which will keep the band from leaning into Coldplay territory. It sounds like they think that's a good thing."

High Cliffs (closing set)
We are creation. We are destruction. We are the desert, the ocean, the forest, outer space, and inner space. We are the peak and the valley. Brothers. Sisters. Children. Sages. We are invisible kingdoms on lucid shores. Ceremonies unfolding. Gospel choirs in the distance. We are the inspeakable horror and the uncontained beauty. Lysergic bliss. Universal chemistry. We are the reckless pursuit of life, love. and happiness. Hope in the face of chaos. We are High Cliffs.
Minor Kingdom
Minor Kingdom
Minor Kingdom was born in a Minneapolis bedroom in the fall of 2007. What started as a solo recording outlet for frontman and songwriter Kristian Melom quickly grew to a collaborative platform, housing over twenty rotating members. Assembled around a unique cast of professional musicians; the group fuses elements of post-rock, folk, and blues to create an eclectic genre they can call their own. The music has recently drawn comparisons to other mainstream artists: Wilco, Red House Painters, Sun Kil Moon and Bonnie Prince Billy among others.
Over the past four years Minor Kingdom have released two albums, toured the Midwest and gained national exposure playing for local radio stations. The project has recently relocated to San Francisco, CA where Kristian is planning a solo West Coast tour to support the group’s latest release entitled “Don’t Worry Baby.”
