The Umbrella Sequence

Putting on my iPod for the morning commute makes me homesick for Minnesota. I don't know what it is about the Twin Cities-- the lakes, the wild rice, the Scandinavian heritage-- but something about Minneapolis/ St. Paul breeds the best local music scene of any city I've ever lived in, including, ahem, New York. My current homestate favorite (besides the ever-present deity that is Lifter Puller) is a band called The Umbrella Sequence. The sound is heavy on keys, quite dreamy, a little pubescent Radiohead-esque. Actually it sounds like being buried in snow, in the best way possible-- maybe that's the Minnesota connection.
