Rock The Link
For 20 years, The Link has provided education, supportive housing and a dynamic network of social services to at-risk youth in the Twin Cities. Targeted programs reach out to youth and families when truancy, homelessness, or involvement in the juvenile legal system is putting youth at risk of not reaching their fullest potential. By providing case management services to youth who are truant, homeless or in trouble with the law, The Link is building assets for at-risk youth and young adults to succeed in life. We currently serve over 3,300 at-risk youth each year.
The Minneapolis, Minnesota, trio formed in the winter of 2008 as songwriter Holly Newsom shifted her reclusive solo work into a rock lexicon that now includes bassist Tim Abramson's melodic counterpoint and the taut structures from drummer Thom Burton. Newsom gives her songs a heightened sense of conviction as her pensive words and private thoughts fold over and drape around warped pop styles and abolished rock band stereotypes.
The lyrics pour out in a variety of ways – sometimes gushing forth in torrents, often crawling out in little more than a whisper – but they are always tethered to melodies that emotionally and elementally guide each song. These particular contrasts and disparities have been wrought into a definitive album which, fittingly, left the band no option but to name it after themselves.
Sun Gods to Gamma Rays
Sun Gods to Gamma Rays (SGGR) is a moody and rhythm-based dream pop band hailing from Minneapolis, Minnesota. With Paul Flynn on guitar, Brian Gollnick on bass, Peter Bregman on Rhodes, Mitch Miller on drums and front woman Brianna Kocka, Sun Gods to Gamma Rays creates vast soundscapes framed around solid grooves. Joe Kellan of the Minnesota Daily said, "Each pulse of the bass paired with Kocka's fragile coo is as hypnotic as it is comforting." It is on top of these smooth bass lines, twinkling Rhodes, washed out guitar, and minimalist drumming that Kocka's vocals drift over the mix in a wave of reverb and wash, creating the ethereal sound that has defined this young band.
Sun Gods to Gamma Rays released their EP, "The Water, The Wave" on November 5, 2013. They then released a remix of their EP on July 8, 2014, featuring remixes by Paper Tiger (Doomtree), Graham O'Brien (No Bird Sing), Grant Cutler (Look Book, Weird Visions), Mark McGee (Marijuana Deathsquads, Votel) and their very own bassist DJ Plosives. Following the release of their remixed EP, they will release their first full length album, titled "A Ghost To Find" on November 4, 2014, with a release party November 7th in Minneapolis, MN.
