North Stars

Besides being known for its ginormous mosquitoes and quirkily homespun Americana, the great state of Minnesota has proven to be a phenomenal birthplace for musical greatness. We can rattle off names like Prince, Bob Dylan, Hüsker Dü, and The Hold Steady (not forgetting, of course, Babes in Toyland, Soul Asylum, Tapes 'n Tapes, The Replacements, and The Cows) as examples of the kind of pop and rock superstardom that’s come from the Gopher State. Our favorite musical Minnesotans by far, however, have got to be the dudes in Motion City Soundtrack, whose clever lyrics and Moog-laced, gleeful pop punkery get us every time we hear songs like “The Future Freaks Me Out” and “Everything Is Alright.”
