One of the fastest rising local bands right now is Carroll, a quartet that graduated from Macalester College last year and got their name from the street they lived on. A mix of psych-pop and Alec Ounsworth-esque vocals, Carroll just released their debut EP and has subsequently gathered all sorts of press and accolades.

The Needs EP is just a precursor to a full-length that the band has in store. For this in-studio on The Local Show, Carroll premieres two new songs, explains the importance of music theory class, talks about receiving the first Humans Win! songwriting award and gives us an oral history back to their bar band starts.

Songs performed: "Jealous Eyes," "Boxing Day" and "Sticks"
