Red Pens, a Low-Fi duo out of Minneapolis

This week’s Music Monday band is Red Pens, a Minneapolis duo. A few of their songs have been gaining some popularity on major music blogs. Pitchfork even reviewed their single “Weekdays”, a track off their new record “Reasons”.

I really enjoy this band’s danceable rhythms and fuzzy guitars. They remind of Bon Iver with a little more gain. You can listen to a few free tracks below. They also have a few live videos on youtube worth checking out.
