On this week's edition of The Local Show, we take a look at some of the best Minnesota releases of 2014 (so far). Host David Campbell was joined by Chris Riemenschneider, a columnist for and The Star Tribune, and Erik Thompson, who writes for Citypages and Gimme Noise, who both recently published articles on the subject. Local Current reporter Andrea Swensson rounds out the quartet. Each guest shared a bit about their favorite Minnesota releases from the last six months, and a few things they are looking forward to in the next six months.

In hour two, you can hear highlights from a private show Trampled By Turtles performed last week at The Cedar Cultural Center in celebration of the release of their new album Wild Animals, and more from July Artist of the Month, Prince.
