Nicholas David
bywurm from Nicholas David FB

Ten years ago when we did an in-studio session with Nicholas Morzinski (aka The Feelin'), we had no way of knowing that in a few short years he'd become a finalist on The Voice and become a household name as "Nicholas David." KUMD's Christine Dean had a chance to catch up with Nicholas when he was back in Duluth for a show on 11/7/19; they talked about the opportunities he's had since that 2012 The Voice appearance and about his new album.

KUMD Album Review: When I Have Fears

Oct 7, 2019

  Dublin-based rock band The Murder Capital dropped their debut album When I Have Fears in August of 2019. The quintet signed to Human Season Records in 2018 and found a producer in Flood, the engineer behind the work of artists from PJ Harvey to U2 to Nine Inch Nails. A close friend’s suicide inspired the album’s title and its themes of death and mental illness; the band’s home city informed lyrics about gentrification and homelessness in the name of development.

Dan Israel
KUMD

This Twin Cities singer/songwriter recently released his 15th album, Social Media Anxiety Disorder. We found out more when he joined us in the studio on October 10; he has a show the same night at Ursa Minor Brewing in Duluth's Lincoln Park.

KUMD Album Review: Night Owl

Night Owl

Detroit-born Olivia Jean started her music career by handing out demos at shows. In the city’s flourishing garage rock scene, she caught the attention of Jack White and signed to his label Third Man Records as the guitarist for The Black Belles in 2009. White wanted an all-female rock band on Third Man and brought the group together. The band saw reasonable success until 2012 when the band went on hiatus, and Olivia Jean began her solo career. Her first album Bathtub Love Killings had a more pop-oriented take on the garage rock sound of The Black Belles.

Whale House
KUMD

This psychedelic rock band from Madison, Wisconsin, has been together since 2007 but just released their first full-length album this year. They joined us for a stripped-down session on September 27; it was a preview of their set the same night as part of Wussow's Concert Cafe's One Week Live.
