The Scarlet Goodbye is a musical adventure, spawned out of the chance meeting of two Minnesota Music veterans who come from different sides of the street. Daniel Murphy and Jeff Arundel may seem like an unlikely mash-up, but they weave their pasts together in an intoxicating (and at times intoxicated) mix that recalls Big Star and The Hollies… musical, melodic, loud, soft… and above all, emotive.

“This started at a house party in St. Paul.” says Dan Murphy, who had waved goodbye to his bands Soul Asylum and Golden Smog several years ago. “I discovered Jeff’s inviting studio, which loomed as a sharp contrast to my distant memories of studios past.” The unlikely collaboration between the Edgy Rocker (Murphy) and the Wistful Troubador (Arundel) gives us “Say Hello to the Scarlet Goodbye”—an aural tour de force that both whispers, and thunders. With Ben Peterson on drums and Pat Nelson on bass, a scrappy rock band emerges,  and artfully delivers songs that evoke the emotions of minor things in major keys.

Butter Boys
 are a rock band based in Minneapolis. Bright and boisterous. Never bashful. Never timid. Upbeat rhythms, clamoring guitars, and memorable melodies. More evocative than provocative. More spirited than angry. Bratty, rebellious, and always youthful.Low Rats play rock and roll that is steeped in 60s garage rock + 70s punk rock. Featuring former and current members of The Loose Rails, F*uck Knights, Narco States and various other unhinged punk n’ roll bands of the last decade.
