Muskellunge Debut LP Out 11/11/20

In a Mess, In a State, and a Second Too Late (Korda 022) debut LP by Muskellunge out now on bandcamp. We are thrilled to help make this dazzling early work finally available!

Minneapolis, 1992. An underage fan sneaking into the dingy Uptown Bar — through the back door, next to the bathroom — pretty much knew what to expect. The dominant sound from smoke-clogged stages was loud, distorted and dangerous, with industry people big and small scouring local micro-scenes for the next angry thing. (Muskellunge cont’d)

A Day On Earth

A musical / natural world experience dreamed up by cellist Jacqueline Ultan and realized with help from her bandmates in The Starfolk and her life partner artist David Bartley. Their 15 minute short film shows what happens when a gifted cellist goes directly to the stark expansive landscape of the South Dakota Badlands for musical inspiration. Happy Earth Day!

The Go-Karts!

Stephen Ittner writes gorgeous songs of his own in addition to his glorious history of singing and drumming with Korda artists The Hang Ups, The Starfolk and The Owls. He’s also hilarious and in his latest project The Go-Karts makes his foray into sketch comedy with his own original pop songs as the score. Check out the “Bubble Wrap” episode and stay tuned for more from this multi-talented cat!
