Minneapolis has long been a hotbed and testing ground for artists spanning several decades. One of the latest to make a name for themselves is four-piece Carroll. Last year, they released their debut EP, Needs, garnering lots of attention. The sound of that release fell somewhere between Rooney and Phoenix.

They recently put the finishing their debut LP with producer/ engineer Jon Low (The National, Twin Sister, Local Natives) in Philadelphia. The first song from it is “Bad Water”. While it maintains some of the laid-back California feel of the previously mentioned Rooney, this seems to bring in some of the slow guitar weaving of Real Estate. It makes for an interesting introduction to what could be a great debut album.
