GATEWAY DISTRICT, THE: Some Days You Get the Thunder: CD

Jul 02, 2009

Debut full length from a Minneapolis super group that’s self described as “fancy the way McDonald’s ketchup is fancy,” featuring ex-members of Rivethead and The Soviettes. The record sounds incredibly like the later, with Maren/Sturgeon providing about half of the vocals, but the other singer sounds just like Kim Shattuck, with just a little bit of country swagger that also translates into the rest of the songs. Think of it as like LP III ½, if you will. I absolutely love the hell out of this.
