Flip Rushmore's debut album—Big, If True—spent 21 weeks on the Muzooka College Radio Charts and peaked at No.
70 in late 2019. Buoyed by the minor Spotify success of bittersweet single "That Hollow Sound," the Minneapolis indie rock band was featured on more than 100 terrestrial stations across North America. Reviewers likened their blend of music to Queens of the Stone Age, Beck, and several other alt-rock staples, with AAA radio giant The Current labeling it a "commanding" effort.
The band managed one headlining show in 2020—at Minneapolis' venerable 7th St Entry in the midst of a January snowstorm—before COVID-19 shut down the planet. In lieu of a live presence, they redoubled their focus on recording for a major release in 2021, led by their first new single in nearly three years, "Gouda Bear."
Social distancing has always been a built-in function of Flip Rushmore; four of the five members live in Minneapolis (Dan Klauer, Nick Spielman, Adam Szczepaniak, and Mike Green) while frontman Alex Smith is a Minnesota expat residing in Nashville, Tennessee. They pieced together their new project across 900 miles of highways while working around individual health concerns.
Lyrically, they targeted white-hot issues facing both Minneapolis and the entire United States, among them: false promises of the stock market ("Gouda Bear"), whiteness in the wake of George Floyd's death ("Platypuseidon"), America's ugly reputation ("The Loathsome Crowded West") and the death penalty ("9").
