Formed in Duluth, Minnesota in 2003, Trampled By Turtles now call Minneapolis home. Their seventh studio album Wild Animals came out earlier this month. Producer Alan Sparhawk (of the band Low) says of the effort, “There is something generous about the way they play. They make room for each other, they serve the song, yet at times seem to ride the chaotic edge of stringed oblivion. It is the sound of joy; the kind of joy that the truth gives you, even when it’s a hard thing to hear.” In addition, this year will see the band headline Red Rocks Ampitheatre for the first time and the kickoff of their own festival, Festival Palomino, which will take place September 20, 2014 outside Minneapolis.
