CARBON HANDSHAKEBy Charlie Milkey
Carbon Handshake is Twin Cities band comprised of six members, who have been together in some capacity working on music since their high school days. Their first full-length release, a 12-track album called "A Dive Right." was written and recorded at a cabin in northern Minnesota, and was produced by the band and engineered/mixed by members Joe McNeill and Mack Scott. There was also quite a bit of outside collaboration with other members of the Twin Cities music scene, including female vocalist Alex Wright (of the band Dandy Lion) and horns by Chris Cote, a phenomenal player from the McNally Smith College of Music. Eva Skellie did all of the artwork for the album. You can check out Carbon Handshake’s next show on December 8th at Cause, opening the night for Rear Window’s Minneapolis Debut show.
