American folk band from Minneapolis, Minnesota, consisting of Nona Marie Invie, Marshall LaCount, Todd Chandler, Jonathan Kaiser, Watt McClements, Brett Bullion, Adam Wozniak and Mark Trecka. Formed in 2006, the band has toured extensively in the United States and Europe and are known for their blend of New Orleans jazz, Americana, Eastern European folk and pop sensibilities. In 2008, they released their debut album ‘The Snow Magic’. This was followed by an EP of ‘Snow Magic’ remixes from Anticon artists Odd Nosdam and Dosh in October 2009, which coincided with a US tour opening for Why? and AU. In March 2010 they released their EP ‘Bright Bright Bright’, followed by their full-length album ‘Wild Go’ in October 2010, both to critical acclaim.
In 2011, they released a cover version of This Woman’s Work. This was followed in 2012 by their third album ‘Who Needs Who’.
Nona Marie Invie about Kate Bush
I first heard Kate Bush when I was driving to my grandma’s house for Christmas. It was a blizzard and I could hardly see anything and ‘This Woman’s Work’ came on a college radio station. I was struck first at how beautiful the song was and how deep the lyrics went. It’s rare to hear something like that on the radio. I got really into her music after that. So it’s the first song I’d really wanted to cover in ages. I love singing it and it was exciting for me to write out parts for people and to spend more time with the lyrics and the emotions in that song.
