Broncho - Try Me Out Sometime, from the new album "Can't Get Past The Lips."
Pillowfight - In The Afternoon, from their new self-titled album.
Jenny O. - Good Love, from the new album "Automechanic."
Cheatahs - The Swan, from the new album "Extended Plays."
Sometimes Duluth feels very far away. Unless bands from the area are playing regularly in the Twin Cities, it's typical for some of the brightest acts from the North Shore to get overlooked.
