Need a gift for a gifted musician?
The members of Beasthead have been playing music all over the Twin Cities area for almost ten years now. Coming from backgrounds in everything from blues to jazz fusion to funk rock to folk pop, they started working together about a year ago on bringing together all of their past musical experiences and current influences to create a sound that is as unique and diverse as the flourishing creative community found in Minneapolis.
What they came up with was 'Tallest Trees', their debut EP, released in September of 2013. This five song EP has provided the local music scene with a great introduction to Beasthead's sound, which weaves together large violin guitar sounds, ambient synth backgrounds, atmospheric vocals, and a rhythm section whose dancy yet aggressive bass and drum tracks can only be compared to those found in Midwest hip hop.
The response to their debut EP has been extremely positive, opening up many new doors for them and providing a solid foundation for them as they continue to forge a name for themselves in Minneapolis and hopefully beyond.
