Artist: Snowblink

Song: Cyclone

Recorded at The Great Hall ("Jason Collett's Basement Revue"), December 20, 2012.

Snowblink - Cyclone

Full review to follow. Bringing the revue out of the basement coziness of the Dakota Tavern and into the much larger confines of the Great Hall, Jason Collett still managed to convince the audience to act as if they were in a small, intimate space, keeping quiet to listen to poets and gentle songs. Scaling things up meant that this would be less of a night to shine a light on some emerging artists and more of an opportunity for old friends to get together.

The final segment of the night was a set from the triple-headed hydra of Snowblink, AroarA, and Feist. This alignment had fallen together for Feist's performance at the Polaris gala a couple months back, but here it sounded like a real band, not just a collection of musicians backing each other. Daniela Gesundheit took advantage of the lushness added by extra hands to debut this new song, which has a bit of a classic Fleetwood Mac feeling.
