New POP Artist: Dessa- Quinine @dessa


DOUBLE BAM! Dessa just released a brand new single called “Quinine”!!! The track was produced by Paper Tiger with co-production by Lazerbeak and additional production from Dessa herself (shout out to that sweet marimba). A true family affair and ultimate collabo heat knocker in every sense. This is the first new bit of recorded music that Dessa has released since 2013’s Parts of Speech album and hints at way more to come. Check out the track and grab it digitally from any of the links below. Big shouts to Bill Phelps on the sweet cover photo.

Mixed Blood Majority in Mpls

Fresh off a raucous set at a sold-out First Avenue show in June, Mixed Blood Majority headlines Minneapolis’ Icehouse this Friday night with the ever-prodigious Bomba de Luz kicking things off and hosts Lizzo & Sophia Eris (of The Chalice) providing jams between sets. There’ll be a specialty Mixed Blood Majority cocktail available that night, created by the Icehouse’s resident mixologists. Some presale tickets for the show are available online right here. You can check out the new Mixed Blood Majority track “Keep Diggin'” feat Lizzo right here.

MTV x Minneapolis

MTV just ran a video feature on the Minneapolis music scene. Members of Doomtree were interviewed for this piece along with a ton of Mpls homies (some names may ring a bell from Tuesdays With Lazerbeak’s Local Bonus Jams). Click the photo above to watch the segment.
