The Billboard
Minneapolis, MN, a city known for great bands like Husker Du, Soul Asylum and The Jets has cultivated an entire new generation of up-and-coming talented artists. Something about the cold winters and abundance of cheap liquor has helped create a clan of mad scientist like musicians that have somehow infiltrated the city. Secretly, members of great currently active Minneapolis bands have started a new project. Going by pseudonyms based on Harrison Ford characters from movies, and clad in ski masks at their live shows, Farewell Continental have embarked on a new musical endeavor that strays from their other bands yet maintains the tradition of mediocre song writing. Their songs are layered with feedback and noise, yet the vocal hooks punch through at regularly predictable intervals. Influenced by Velocity Girl, Pavement, Swervedriver, the Pixies and fueled entirely by the delicious taste of bacon, Farewell Continental make a considerate nod to 90's indie rock, but never go as far as aping their influences.* Pressed on a square picture disc, the first press LIMITED TO 500 of this EP by a talented but secretive group of artists is the definition of shoegaze for the modern audience.

*depends on who you ask, of course.
