This local supergroup features Marc Gartman, Trampled by Turtles members Dave Carroll and Tim Saxhaug, and drummer Kyle Keegan. They’ve released their first full-length album, Among the Wild, produced by Low’s Steve Garrington, and were scheduled to have a Duluth release show on March 13, 2020 at Pizza Luce in Duluth, but just before our in-studio session they got the word that the show had been cancelled due to coronavirus fears. Fortunately they stuck around to play some songs for us and talk about making the album.
