Bemidji EP Premieres On Consequence Of Sound

The new EP from Daniel Ellsworth & The Great Lakes, Bemidji, is premiering now on Consequence Of Sound.

"...a high-energy, hip-swinging effort...unrelentingly catchy...This is barroom music to which you want to make bad decisions; there are even some regret-tinged ballads that pair well with a good cry at last call. The only problem? The whole thing’s over in the time it takes to down a cheap beer."

"Get Mine" Premieres On Consequence Of Sound

"Get Mine" - the second single from the forthcoming Bemidji EP is premiering now, along with accompanying music video, on Consequence Of Sound.

"...on their forthcoming Bemidji EP, the four-piece is making it clear that fame can take all the sweet time it needs, because they’re going to keep delivering the high-energy music they always have. If you don’t dig it, then get the hell out of the way."

The music video for our new single "Always/Never" is premiering over on The Daily Beast. Animal masks were worn. Dancing happened. Watch it now!
