2012 has been an interesting year. I made a brief trip to Minnesota earlier this year which only made me fall in greater love with the mid-west. It continues to surprise me with warm hospitality and good times.
Poliça are the most recent mid-western pleasure I’ve encountered. After a brief sample of the tune “Wandering Star,” I knew I was in love. Their name is “policy” in Polish.
I listened to these guys with high regard and adoration by Bon Iver’s frontman Justin Vernon. Bon Iver guitarist even provides some vocals for Poliça’s debut. In a first listen I wrote them off pretty quick. I’ve kind of adapted to missing hidden gems in festivals it however hurts no less.

2012 wrap-up coming soon! It’s been a nutty few weeks.
