The Current is part of Minnesota Public Radio, broadcasting on 89.3 in the Twin Cities. Why should you care? Well, besides being a phenomenal music station, their website has streaming audio files of all their in-studio performances/interviews with the best of today’s music makers. It’s a goldmine for music lovers wanted to hear their favorite artists stripped down to the essentials of their work.

I’ve been digging on the Nada Surf performance, as well as a really interesting Bob Mould performace. My favorite has been hearing The Eels tackle the Prince gem ‘I Could Never Take The Place Of Your Man’.
