Night Moves: Laurel Canyon, By Way Of Minnesota

The Minneapolis band Night Moves released its debut album, Colored Emotions, for free online in 2011, setting off a wave of buzz. Its Americana-tinged single "Headlights" became a staple on The Current's airwaves, and the group played the station's seventh birthday party at First Avenue in January of this year.

Ultimately, the hype surrounding Night Moves — singer John Pelant, bassist Mickey Alfano and guitarist Mark Ritsema, joined here by touring drummer Jared Isabella — would land the group on the Domino Records roster. Now, Night Moves' debut has been revamped and re-recorded in a way that builds on the original's hook-laden psychedelic rock, lush instrumentation and richly textured production.

In preparation for the album's re-release, its members recently stopped by The Current's studios to perform songs from Colored Emotions, including the one seen here: "Country Queen."
