    Mar 22, 2012 Now, Now performs in The Current studios

Now, Now's new name is the result of a band who wanted to push themselves in a different direction, specifically after a self-imposed hiatus and the addition of Jess Abbott a few years back. It wasn't just the traditional duo of Cacie Dalager and Bradley Hale that people had come to know anymore, and there was a feeling of general exhaustion in the mix that needed to be remedied. So while the release of their debut Cars in 2007 was widely accepted in the region as a mature and emotive record, and one that would set the band's career in motion, they disappeared in many respects in order to flesh out some ideas that would make up their second album.

Now, Now is releasing their follow-up Threads on March 6 via Trans Records, owned by Chris Walla of Death Cab For Cutie. Early tracks already illustrate that this will be one of Minnesota's biggest records in 2012 — it's a serious showcase of talent, the result of taking some time to refine their playing and further bolstered by recording the album away from home in Vancouver over a month's span.

Songs performed: "School Friends," "Thread," and "Shifting."
