Candid Kid | Turf Club | Wednesday, April 1
The young men in Candid Kid certainly fall in line with their band name. The quartet have assembled at an hour too early for normal rock stars at a table in the back room of Cafe Latte in St. Paul. But the group still is able to joke and speak frankly about their latest EP, Turtleneck. Set in the vein of indie-rockers Vampire Weekend, yet distilled to take out the quirkiness, the album traces the band through bedroom recordings to polished sincere tracks that extends from musicians that are young and hungry.
