It's become a tradition at The Current in springtime to devote an entire day to nothing but local music. This year, Minnesota Music Day is Sunday, May 19. Starting right at midnight, we'll be playing tracks from all eras of music in Minnesota—from '60s garage and folk rockers, through the heyday of the '80s alternative and R&B scenes, to today's hip-hop, indie rock, Americana and everything in between.
South Minneapolis rapper Greg Grease knew he had to get his debut album "Cornbread, Pearl and G" out to the masses before the end of 2012. If anything, it would be a good holiday gift to family and friends. What he didn't know was that the record would end up making just about every best album list from local critics.
