Soul man extraordinaire Charles Bradley performs at The Current


Charles Bradley

In 2011, Charles Bradley proved that it's never too late for a musical talent to enter the ring, issuing his debut album at age 62 and winning plaudits from critics and the adoration of soul fans nationwide. Now, he's back with a sophomore effort called Victim of Love.

Cutting-edge UK producer/singer James Blake performs at The Current


James Blake

Just a few years ago, James Blake was a precocious and talented young electronic producer dabbling in the UK's vast, eclectic, fast-moving and amorphous "post-dubstep" scene. Shortly thereafter, he began recording vocals over his own productions, swerving out of the dance music scene and into the vanguard of indie electro-pop with a wounded cyber-soul sound.

Local singer turned national figure Nicholas David performs at The Current


Nicholas David

Saint Paul's Nicholas David Mrozinski has been a fixture of the local music scene for a decade, with several albums under his belt and frequent live shows in the area to bolster his Twin Cities rep. But last year he was catapulted to nationwide fame thanks to a stint on season three of NBC's The Voice.

On An On performs in The Current studios


On An On

It's time for us to welcome On An On to the Minnesota music community. But they aren't total strangers: Nate Eiesland and Alissa Ricci both grew up in the state before joining forces with Ryne Estwing and several others in the popular Chicago band Scattered Trees. After the act suddenly disbanded, Eiesland, Ricci and Estwing started On An On, changed their musical direction and partly uprooted themselves back to Minneapolis.

Erstwhile Twin Citizens Free Energy kick off a new leg of their tour in the Twin Cities; naturally, they stopped by for a session in The Current studios.

Texas psych-rockers The Black Angels perform at The Current


The Black Angels

In town for a show at the Fine Line Music Cafe, the Black Angels stopped by The Current studios to play a few songs and talk to host Bill DeVille about some very special audience members spotted at their Minneapolis show, their work running and curating the Austin Psych Fest, the affinity between their sound and artists like Ty Segall, and how the ensured the hard-rocking sound of their new record.
