Claude VonStroke Signs Têtes' Producer on Dirtybird Label ]

George Cochrane (AKA Give In) co-produced and engineered the Têtes release this year. He recently covered the deep house hit “Califuture” by Claude VonStroke. Vice Magazine’s Thump (EDM blog) premiered the cover, and when Claude heard it, he signed it for release on his celebrated label, Dirtybird. 

Têtes Noires, the six-member, largely a cappella, all-female troupe was for me as beloved as their male Twin Cities peers the Replacements and Hüsker Dü.

Last week in l’étoile magazine, Lizzy Shramko interviewed Angela Frucci of the Minneapolis
all female band Têtes Noires, which just released a long-awaited album. The Q&A telescoped in on Frucci’s production work behind “The New American Dream.”

Mpls.-based l’étoile magazine provides a witty and irreverent guide to the Twin Cities, featuring online coverage of the best art, fashion, music and performing arts that the area has to offer. 


In honor of Minneapolis band Têtes Noires' latest release, The New American Dream, writer and mixmaster Lizzy Shramko compiled a mixtape of ”Wegula” ladies currently dominating the electronic, hip-hop, and garage rock music scenes straight from the Land of 10,000 lakes.
