Minnesota has already left its imprint on music history by gifting the world Bob Dylan, Prince, the Andrews Sisters, and the Replacements. But over the last decade, an eventful, expansive, and awfully incestuous hip-hop/rock scene in Minneapolis has been pumping out projects that are on the cusp of making a national impact. Marijuana Deathsquads are a shining example. The five-piece — which features rapper P.O.S, Ryan Olson (founder of sprawling Minneapolis supergroup Gayngs), and Isaac Gale of defunct hardcore unit Building Better Bombs — generates cyberpunky electronic noise that's heavy on swollen textures and freaky imagery. They're a more lighthearted and approachable version of Crystal Castles, circa 2008. Fresh off the release of its second full-length, Shulamith, soulful electro-pop four-piece Poliça (which also includes Olson) appears here, too. You should be practically gushy with affection for the Gopher State by the time those house lights hit.
