Trampled by Turtles have been a word of mouth phenomenon since forming four years ago with their combination of lightening fast, punk-influenced barn-burners and lonesome, Townes Van Zandt-inspired ballads. With their April 13 release, Palomino, Trampled by Turtles deliver a pure, timeless album that carries on the songwriting tradition of fellow MN artists like the Jayhawks and Bob Dylan. Frontman/songwriter Dave Simonett’s vocals and lyrics capture the stark MN landscapes and the mood of the North Country like no other current artist with his hauntingly beautiful songs.
Catch them at Stagecoach Fest on SAT, April 24 at 5:15 on the Mustang Stage. Don’t miss it!
Palomino is entering the Billboard bluegrass charts at #1 (just announced Wednesday, will be in next issue) and the guys tore the roof off their SxSW AMA/Lucero Family Picnic gig in March.
