The music of Minneapolis-based Americana band Soo Line Loons transforms the day-to-day struggle of American living into foot-stomping, full-hearted anthems about chasing dreams and dancing while you do it.
At times twangy, at times funky, their albums stretch the boundaries of several genres to produce something entirely different: songs that offer the loose, raw spirit of punk rock, the bold, driving rhythms of roots rock-and-roll, and the rich sense of personal history that makes classic country forever relevant.
Inspired by down-home, storytelling artists from John Prine to Bruce Springsteen to Uncle Tupelo, the Soo Line Loons write with a back-to-basics mentality, focusing on guitars, bass, drums, fiddle, and lyrics written by real people for real people. After the initial success of their first release, the Soo Line Loons put their heads down and got back to work, rehearsing regularly at Minneapolis’s famed Sound 80 where Dylan recorded Blood on the Tracks. There, they co-wrote the tracks that eventually became their self-titled release.
The new album brings the fiddle to the forefront in a series of uniquely atmospheric, bluegrass-leaning ballads and dance-ready anthems. The album’s intricate twists and turns keep the music interesting, showing a clear evolution from earlier releases, while staying true to the Soo Line Loons’ idiosyncratic style.
