  • The Frozen North

    Winter in Minnesota (along with the rest of the midwest) has been pretty extreme. The day after Minnesota was in blizzard conditions, Anna and I ventured north to stay in a log cabin for three nights. Snow shoe adventures, clouds of snow, ice cave adventures into Wisconsin, and more. Never have I explored the north in conditions like this. The setting was very surreal, and the landscape felt like it was not of this state at some points. Do enjoy what was our view. <3

    Day 1: Bear Head Lake State Park

    Day 2: Tettegouche State Park

    Day 3: Ice Caves of the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore

    This year Lake Superior froze over upwards toward 90%, reaching a 10 inch average for ice thickness. To get to these "ice caves" in the following images, you walk along the southern shore over the ice on Lake Superior.

    1. Night Moves @ First Ave - 4.24.13


    A show of Minneapolis based artists, Night Moves opened up for Poliça last week, right after RONIA with their opening set of synths and dreamy vocals.

    Night Moves is a band that has me rediscovering a sound I fell in love with years ago. With a psychadelic/experimental rock sound, them high pitched vocals and guitar twangs, this was like discovering Portugal. The Man all over again (post Church Mouth).
