Gayngs – The Gaudy Side Of Town

This Minneapolis based indie band has 23 members (yes, you read that correctly), including Justin Vernon of Bon Iver fame, Rhymesayers rapper P.O.S, and members of Solid Gold. This dynamic slow jam is layered with different sounds and styles. It takes you on a journey, from start to finish. I dig it. Their album was released in the spring and has been called both a “triumph” and the “album of the year” by the Guardian due to the unique vocal stylings and “retro-but-contemporary” sound. Even more impressive is their creativity during performances. Their first show in Minneapolis was called “the last prom on earth” and included prom-themed decorations, a balloon drop, and a surprise appearance by Prince, who just happened to be kicking around in the audience. If Prince shows up, you know it’s gonna a be good night.
