Hockey Night "Keep Guessin'"
The Minneapolis/St. Paul area has a tremendous and diverse indie rock and punk heritage - The Replacements, Husker Du, Babes In Toyland, Har Mar Superstar, Dillinger Four. Hockey Night is another great new band from this special scene; five guys from St. Paul who take their music and their fun seriously. They're art smart and "Keep Guessin'" is their second album, the follow-up to the eclectic and irreverent "Rad Zapping". Their music is melodic, catchy and quirky, blending influences as wide as kraut rock, 90's indie, 80's new wave with punk sensibilities and arena pop-rock aplomb. Their special twist is an infectious energy that just gets you smiling. Here's how the band describe themselves; "Nonstop mind-zap melodies. Superhooks and shimmery light tones. Harmonized dual guitars and inntertubes. Watery vocal jams, dripping hooks and glops. Giant folk choruses and late evening wood-flutes. Empty fire and echos, blazing over glistening drum shots and slippery hits. Then solo becomes eagle mind soaring over rivers of buzzy pop and fizzy throat hums. A return to melody."
