Local stories from this episode:
Artist Of The Month: The Suburbs
Sombear may be a relatively new act in the music community here in Minnesota, but we can guarantee that a lot of you probably know the man behind the project. Brad Hale -- drummer for Now, Now -- is stepping into the spotlight to release a debut that's been stewing in his head for years.
One of most impressive local bands to spring into the spotlight this year has been Fury Things, a power trio taking a cue from some of the best alt-rock bands that came to fruition in the '90s like Dinosaur Jr. and Superchunk.
