Twin Cities Media is proud to introduce you to Minneapolis based rockers – The Favorite Things. Their debut album Coming Clean is out now. Their sound is heavily influenced by Minneapolis legends The Replacements, but with a twist that makes it all their own. Their new album is polished from top to bottom. It’s catchy with a nostalgic feel that harkens back to the glory days of Minneapolis punk rock, but with a fresh take that is a breath of fresh air into the local music scene.
In 2014, four long time Minneapolis musicians joined forces to form The Favorite Things, playing original garage pop with a bit of alt country influence thrown in. Their name is taken from one of their biggest song writing and musical influences – The Replacements and their song, “Favorite Thing”.
The band formed from their common interest in making original music – after a few line-up changes, practice spot changes, and band name changes, they found a formula and a combination that worked – straight ahead songs, catchy hooks, and heart-felt lyrics.
The combination was working at their live shows, so the band decided to team up with engineer/ producer extraordinaire Jacques Wait at Terrarium studio to record their first album, called Coming Clean. The band is very excited to share these studio recordings, to continue writing songs, and play high energy live shows.
You can catch The Favorite Things on Saturday, December 17th, 2016 at Maylacks! The show is at 9pm, it’s 21+ and no cover (score). More info here.
