Patches and Gretchen: Sugar Head Pie

Gretchen Seichrist is a rising star in the Minneapolis music scene, who is developing a following, because of her soulful style. Some folk, punk, rock and front porch sounds.

I was introduced to her. She is friendly and outspoken.

Sounds awesome, I'll be checking out more of her work. Thanks for that Ren!

Thanks,

Frank

Frolicksome? Delightful? No wonder Daniel likes them. I'd be willing to bet good money Gert just loves them.

Daniel Hoffmann-Gill said...

You know me Pagan, I like pretty much anything from hardcore punk rock to wistful Americana. x

The Pagan Temple said...

Yeah one of your favorite bands, if I recall correctly, is also one of mine, and I can't even remember their names right off. It's the Brit band that put out the video with clowns in it. At the end, dude lit a match and a trail of fire went to his friends car, with his friend in it, and it exploded. Wild ass video.

Daniel H-G: I believe you'd like Gretchen personally.

Frank: Thank you for visiting.

Pagan: I believe when you talk about liking music, my first question is when you're in a record shop, where do you go first?

The Pagan Temple said...

I usually buy my music from Wal-Mart.

Daniel Hoffmann-Gill said...

Radiohead is the band of which you speak.

Now you're talking.

The Pagan Temple said...

DHG-

No it was The Arctic Monkeys. The video I was thinking about was Effervescent Adolescent

Daniel Hoffmann-Gill said...

Oh right, they are an equally cool band, last album was a bit off the boil but the first two, outstanding bits of work.

Frank said...

Thank you, Renegade Eye. I came across your site a few weeks back and liked it a lot. Keep up the good work.

On the subject of music: I'm into classic rock more than anything. I guess I'm still stuck in the 60s, 70s and 80s, although I recently rediscovered the music of The Clash. I love their lyrics and working class message.

Renegade Eye said...

Frank: I'm linking to your blog tomorrow.

Pagan: I like music from dead junkies like Miles Davis.

Daniel H-G: Did you ever sing on stage?

Daniel Hoffmann-Gill said...

Yes, a little but not musicals, my voice is strong but of limited range for such things but yes, I've done theatre with a few songs on.

It tests an actors true mettle, their feelings about singing.

If she is coming to Montana she better stick around Missoula. She would have trouble finding a gig in Miles City.

I get a little Lucinda Williams vibe.

Renegade Eye said...

Troutsky: I could see a Lucinda vibe.

DHG: Carrying a tune will do.
