Is/Is

Add Date: May 1

Artist: Is/Is

Album: III

Label: Guilt Ridden Pop

Genre: Rock

Comments: You wouldn't think that three girls hailing from Minneapolis could create such drastically dark music. After all, doesn't Minnesota have one of the best economies and some of the happiest citizens in the nation? You wouldn't know it after listening to III. Full of fuzzy atmosphere and textured guitars, this album demands a garage-state of mind. But hopefully that doesn't scare you.

While not the most accessible on first listen, III becomes increasingly bewitching and likeable, especially for those days when you need to hop in your car, blast something rough, and put all thoughts of a speed limit sign behind you. For a good starter song, listen to "Lie Awake".
