For each of the past five years, the Minnesota Beatle Project put together by Vega Productions has consistently been one of the best local compilations. And Volume 5, out December 3, is no exception, with all of the proceeds going to support music and art education in Minnesota public schools.
The roster of bands and artists involved this year includes the Okee Dokee Brothers, Poliça's Chris Bierden, Carroll, the Monks' Gary Burger, Zoo Animal, Dosh, and Actual Wolf -- to name just a few. "My parents have always been fans of the Beatles, so I grew up
listening to them," Actual Wolf's Eric Pollard tells Gimme Noise. "I think initially their music was
appealing because it was easy to remember 'She Loves You,' 'I Wanna
Hold Your Hand,' and 'Love Me Do.' Then, as I grew up with their music, I
was really drawn to the production and the musicality of it all."
