The Minnesota Child

A week ago, ever-evolving Oakland folk project the Minnesota Child shared the captivating new EP, Fireflies.

The Minnesota Child was born as a solo project in 2011, but Fireflies makes their formal debut as a full band. The man behind it, Ethan Buckner, moved to Oakland in 2013 and has been there ever since. This new record, produced by in-demand East Bay producer Jeff Saltzman, features lilting vocals over sparse instrumentals. Fireflies feels like a soft nod to the woodsy surroundings that give Oakland its name.

Take a listen below, and check them out at the Octopus Literary Salon in April.
