"I know that I couldn't have made this record three years ago," Josh Scott readily admits.
There's a tranquil sunset coming through windows of Bev's Wine Bar behind the Rochester native, who recently moved to northeast Minneapolis from Chicago. He's best known for his years shaping the rural rock movement in Eau Claire, Wisconsin, over a decade ago.
In the early aughts, Scott and his Amateur Love cohorts -- Brian Moen and brothers Brad and Phil Cook -- crafted the influential full-length It's All Aquatic. Their friend Justin Vernon loved the heady, guitar- and keys-laden indie rock album so much that he formed the Chigliak record label in part to press a reissue. Amateur Love was on the cusp, but Scott retreated from the scene due to a crippling battle with an autoimmune disease and untreated depression.
