How could we not choose Trampled By Turtles as this week's featured band? The locally bred bluegrass outfit just released their new album, Stars and Satelittes, and had their own official day proclaimed by the Mayors of both Duluth and Minneapolis as a tightly packed, and very rapt, sold-out crowd at First Avenue looked on.
This tune, Alone, encompasses both the frantic fiddle-heavy sounds and the tender lullaby lyics that frontman and primary songwriter Dave Simonett is known for.
Tune into "Live From Studio 5!" every Wednesday from 10 PM to Midnight on KFAI radio for more Twin Cities musicians making waves on the local scene.
