  • Huhroon, sahn and ech0astral @ 7th St Entry — A great little sampler of up-and-coming local musicians courtesy of Carbon Sound, the Current’s Black music stream. Huhroon cut his teeth as a teen spoken word artist, but in his short time recording he's already audibly progressing—his latest single, "PEPPERMYNT” is more plaintive and straightforward and nuanced than the two cuts on his 2021 EP ICEPACK. Huhroon is clearly fascinated with the weirding possibilities of Auto-Tune, as is Cedar-Riverside vocalist sahn, judging by his singles “VILLAINOUS.” and "DREAM." (Lotta ALL CAPS with these fellas.)

  • Munson-Hicks Party Supplies @ Dakota—In 2020, bittersweetly seriocomic piano man Dylan Hicks (largely) handed the mic over to John Munson of Semisonic (and then some), in whose voice Hicks’s stories of wrong turns taken and second thoughts re-thunk take on a slightly different shade of wistful. But as you'll recall, that wasn't the best time to play live shows, so this belated showcase of their self-titled album together is something to look forward to.
