KUMD Single Review: Prince

Apr 25, 2018

Prince| “Nothing Compares 2 U”

Two years after Minnesota lost one of its biggest icons in Prince, we are still receiving classics from him posthumously. The man who made purple more than just a color has had his previously unreleased single “Nothing Compares 2 U” put out by Warner Bros. Records. Originally recorded in 1984 for Prince’s band the Family, it was made famous via a 1990 re-recording by Sinéad O’Connor which spawned her greatest hit.

KUMD Album Review: Shrimpnose

Mar 28, 2018

Shrimpnose | Sullen

We’ve all had to face adversity in our lives in one way or another, but Shrimpnose may be proof that it takes time to conquer our demons. Overcoming several obstacles early in his life and till this day, the Minneapolis producer still finds a way to rise up and make music for others to do the same. Investing newfound energy and emotion into his newest project, Sullen, Shrimpnose crafts a peaceful electronica experience.

KUMD Album Review: Dessa

Mar 21, 2018
Dessa's album Chime
Dessa Chime

Dessa | Chime

Doomtree member Dessa is here with her fourth album and its timing couldn’t be any better. When she’s not working on her evolving sound in New York or going back to her alma mater helping participate in neuroscience research (which helped influence the album), Dessa can be found at a local venue jamming out. The Minnesota native’s latest, Chime, blends sounds of classical orchestras, hip-hop instrumentals and soulful pop.
