GAYNGS "The Gaudy Side of Town" MP3 + TOUR


Minneapolis, Minnesota holds a lot of secrets that most of the country don’t notice. A lot of these secrets aren’t so secret but just aren’t given their just notice. But when you claim to sound like 10cc’s “I’m Not In Love” you just may have to take a double look, or at least listen. With Ryan Olsen taking the song writing lead, he’s casted one of the largest indie rock all-star casts to be in a band.  With vocal duties taken by Zack Coulter from Solid Gold, the songs do tend to sound like Solid Gold’s moody electro-fused indie rock.  But that sexed up soul from 10cc is there.  On top of that the live band also contains members of indie rock elites such as Bon Iver, Megafaun, Lookbook and The Rosebuds.  On recording he has also enlisted famous Doomtree artists Rhymesayers and Dessa.  The list just keeps growing.

So when the ensemble decides to get together and perform at their CD release show at First Ave, the mightiest of Minneapolis musicians comes out to see them live. Though he only picked up a guitar (and not on stage) reported by Pitchfork, when Prince comes to look on there must be something there.

Well, we will now be able to see for ourselves what we’re missing.  They announced their first tour.
