PERFORMER: 

WILD PINK

Wild Pink songwriter John Ross sings about lakes, hills and trees; moss, thickets and canopies; smoke, snow and wind. The impressionistic cover art of the band’s eponymous debut full-length (2017) depicts a serene riverbed flush with dreamy hues of purple and green. It evokes a sense of tranquility that diametrically opposes their clamorous homebase of NYC, and the record’s mostly breezy—though occasionally blustery—songset is equally uncharacteristic of the environment it was born of. It’s not that their music perpetually idles, or that’s it’s soft in a simplistic way. They just move at their own pace. A patient pace.

SPECIAL GUESTS:

ANDY COOK

What’s a man, anyway? It’s a question at the center of Andy Cook’s new EP, Modern Man—a 22-minute indie rock ride that hints at nostalgia with jangly guitars, articulate synth lines, and driving percussion, all as a vehicle for digging into life in this hyper-digital age. Produced by Jeremy Ylvisaker (HALEY, Alpha Consumer, Andrew Bird) and recorded live to tape at Pachyderm Studio in Cannon Falls, Minnesota, Modern Man follows on Cook’s In Space EP (2017) and pulls on a range of influences including 60’s surf, 80’s pop and contemporary indie rock.
