HALLOWEEN, ALASKA took root in the early '00s as a semi-electronic diversion from its members' primary rock/jazz projects (The Bad Plus, 12 Rods, Love-cars, Happy Apple, et al). A self-titled debut album made sufficient waves to inspire more recording, more shows, more expenditures, more experimentation. Over the course of three more albums, a string of US/UK tours and couple of lineup changes, the group has continued to expand its palette outward from a dedicated core of arty, ambient rock. As of 2015, the band is completing a fifth full-length album in its hometown of Minneapolis in collaboration with engineer/producer Brett Bullion. There's more to tell...
