Minneapolis continues to dish out gems, following on the heels of Pony Trash‘s EP comes a new single from Gospel Gossip! ‘Except You’ is taken from their debut self-titled album, out through Old Blackberry Way on March 19. Fans of Hope Sandoval, Widowspeak or even Beast Coast will lap up ‘Except You’. Its a sluggish dream pop tune with an alt country edge, more whimsical than their previous 7inch ‘Atlantic Blue‘.

Gospel Gossip – ‘Except You’

Guitarist/singer/pianist Sarah Nienaber explains how it all began, “Gospel Gossip started with just Ollie and I in a college-dorm basement room with an out-of-tune piano, in 2006. We soon graduated to drums and guitar, and while recording our first demos (the ultra-rare Milkshake EP), we added Justin on bass. We bonded equally over both Galaxie 500 and the power of a well-crafted pop song.”

I put Sarah on the spot and asked about her favorite piece of kit, “Around the same time, Ollie introduced me to Boss Digital Delay pedal that has since become essentially an extension of myself. That said, my favorite piece of gear is probably my toilet-seat-yellow 1966 Fender Mustang. I’ve burned through quite a few delay pedals, but the Mustang is irreplaceable.”

Minnesotans mark March 21 in your diaries, the record release party is on at 7th Street Entry (details here)! Meanwhile fellow local Chris Rose has released a record on Destijl under the moniker Robust Worlds, Chris’ band Heavy Deeds will release an EP on Old Blackberry Way this May (“like cosmic Fleetwood Mac” – listen here). To complete the picture, Sarah and Chris play together in a band called Web Of Sunsets.
