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

Dessa's album 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.

3/30 Live From Studio A: Jacob Mahon

Mar 20, 2018

Since moving to Duluth as a teenager just two years ago, Mahon has been drawing attention for his unique, beyond-his-years singing and songwriting style as well as his guitar skills. He's won songwriting competitions hosted by Beaner's Central and by Duluth Dylan Days. He released his debut album, Llamaless on March 31 at Beaner's and will stop by our studios for a preview on March 30.

3/28 Live From Studio A: Dusty Heart

Mar 20, 2018

Minnesota Americana singer/songwriters Molly Dean and Barbara Jean had established solo careers before forming this duo just a couple of years ago after being invited to open a Colorado tour for Dave Simonett and Dave Carroll of Trampled by Turtles. The two released their self-titled debut album on March 16; we found out more when they joined us in the studio for a session on March 28. They played the same evening at Glensheen as part of that venue's March Unplugged series.

3/22 Live From Studio A: Nat Harvie Trio

Mar 19, 2018

Duluth native Harvie drew attention with their high school band, Vivielle, which eventually broke up after the members went off to college. After putting out some solo material, Harvie formed this "100% queer" solo project that also features bassist Becca DeBoer (Red Mountain) and drummer Sam Williams (Chase Down Blue). The trio put out its first album, Nat Harvie's Broken Record, on March 23. They joined us for a preview of the show on March 22.

Teague Alexy and Erik Berry
Christine Dean for KUMD

Teague Alexy's Irish immigrant grandparents inspired his love of Irish music, while one of mandolinist Erik Berry's pre-Trampled by Turtles bands was called Father McClanahan and His Irish Snake Stompers. The two found themselves comparing notes about Irish music for years before joining forces to perform and record in the genre. They released an album, Irish American, in late 2017. They joined us in the studio on March 14 to give us a preview of a run of shows they have scheduled for St.

KUMD Album Review: Ingeborg Von Agassiz

Ingeborg Von Agassiz| O Giver of Dreams

Duluth-based artist Ingeborg Von Agassiz is more than just a mouthful to pronounce. Von Agassiz, whose actual name is Emma Rusten, draws her moniker from two 12th century influences, Hildegard Von Bingen and Eleanor of Aquitaine, two of the most accomplished women in the Medieval era. Her newest project , O Giver of Dreams, is self-produced and described as a “Hank Williams melody with a Hip Hop beat;” truly her music is a unique blend of vocals, acoustics and drum production.

For some, it was an emotional homecoming to a venue that hosted some of the most memorable moments from Duluth's music and arts scene from the '90s to the mid-2000s. For others, it was a first chance to experience music in one of Duluth's last remaining historic  theaters.
