may originally be from a US town relatively near Alberta, a Western province of Canada, which is named after Princess Louise Caroline Alberta, daughter of the queen of the United Kingdom and Empress of India. Alberta (the province) is the largest producer of conventional crude oil, synthetic crude, natural gas and gas products in Canada. Alberta is the world's second-largest exporter of natural gas and the fourth-largest producer. The official flower of the province ...is the Wild Rose. The official tree is the Lodgepole pine. The official bird is the Great Horned Owl. Now Palberta resides in Brooklyn.

Good news: most companies gave up suing Minneapolis over the vote to raise the wage to $15 an hour. The only company still left is Graco Paint Sprayers, which also works with other "fluid handling systems" - so we suggest you look elsewhere for your fluid handling needs. Bad news: Minneapolis elected officials gave themselves a $10k raise with no public input or process -- we think elected officials should receive the average wage of a worker in the city - something like $45k.../year instead of the $100k they currently get - what do YOU think?
In other news, thanks to select isolated media which highlighted our new album Water Your Waiting For in their year end lists including Radio K (Real College Radio) and GO MN which would like you to GO MN and DO IT MN STYLE.
But none of this matters because we didn't get coverage through dude-assers Vice Media, didn't get covered in Pitchpork, didn't get played on 89.3 the Current (the tastemaker's go-to), radio host Mark Wheat didn't talk about us once, the lifestyle magazine CityPages didn't write about us, and we didn't play one show at the career-starting venue First Avenue, and as a result will not play Pitchfork Fest, Rock the Garden, or SXSW. But we will not be dismayed! Next year we are hoping to play on TRL and in King Arthur's Court. God Bless.
Very Stoked that the most important cultural institution of our time has named our new album "Water Your Waiting For" as the "most important album of the year" and described it as "quite good" and "rather enjoyable." Thanks so much to the Washington Post! And also, you're welcome! The Washington Post is owned by Jeff Bezos, founder of Amazon.com, so thanks Jeff Bezos! Without you, Christmas would no longer be possible! And thanks to all of the minimum wage workers delivering our packages! "Water Your Waiting For" is available through Amazon -- Coincidence? We think not! No, it's a Bezos-led scheme to promote our album through the paper he owns and sell it through his online marketplace! Happy Holidays everybody!
Internet neutraliters: we forgot to mention this exciting tidbit: we have a song on a DeKalb, IL based compilation where all proceeds go to help Puerto Ricans recover from the devastating hurricane and from US austerity measures and exctractive disaster capitalism and imperialism. It is called Ragged and it's about toxic masculinity. https://puertoricobenefit.bandcamp.com/…/the-miami-dolphins…

Enjoyed giving a PSA about draining your boat to prevent the spread of aquatic invasive species live on air on Radio K Last week.
You can hear our full in-studio experience and whatnot via some links that are posted below as comments.
White men, particularly a small hegemonic group of them, have been ruining the world for centuries. Let us all seek communal understanding and solidarity through shared struggle and break out of the confines of paternalistic exploitative capitalism so that we may all be free!
Thank you to the lesser-populated parcels of the midwest where the real estate speculation is less jacked up and the air is cold and a little bit cleaner, namely Duluth MN and Eau Claire WI, for hosting us this past weekend. We had fun, here's proof:

Post-Trash, a website, HAS GRACIOUSLY WRITTEN A REVIEW OF OUR ALBUM, COMPARING IT TO DEERHOOF, CAPTAIN BEEFHART, BLOOD ON THE WALL, AIDS WOLF, DANIEL JOHNSTON, AND THE UNICORNS ALL IN ONE ARTICLE!
The Valley Advocate out of W. Mass WROTE A SCREAMING REVIEW OF OUR ALBUM AND LIVE SHOW IN WESTERN MASS "Not only did the Minneapolis-based band turn the heads of everyone in the basement that night, but they also spoke to the political moment we’re living in, in a way few current bands are able to do. " "this stuff would be just as potent if Hillary Clinton was president" AND COMPARED US TO THE MINUTEMEN, DEVO, JACKSON FIVE AND PARQUET COURTS http://valleyadvocate.com/…/basemental-water-your-waiting-…/
WRSU - Rutgers Radio's "THE ANSWER IS IN THE BEAT" DESCRIBED OUR ALBUM AS "cartoonish, angular no wave "
Skull Valley SAID IT'S LIKE BJORK FRONTING THE MINUTEMEN AND THE WRITER SAID THE ALBUM MAKES THEM WORRIED ABOUT THEIR FUTURE http://www.skull-valley.info/…/the-miami-dolphins-water-you…
THANK YOU TO THE INTERNET FOR MAKING THIS POSSIBLE, AND TO Al Gore (who surprisingly only has 500k FB likes)
Not that Canada's a perfect dreamland free from imperialist capitalist patriarchal guilt and evil, but it has some charm, and it might be easier for us to naturalize there after CKUT 90.3FM has continually played our new songs on air... We've been in their top 30 every week since they got our new record Water Your Waiting For. Merci a vous! Nice to be among friends and acquaintances such as David Nance, Naomi Punk, Shimmer... may God herself bless us all from hell
Did you know that we are a neoliberal pop band? Read about it from the MN Daily !
Greater Minneapolis/St. Paul residents: since you last saw us, we've climbed the great Mt. Wachusett, seen the Atlantic Ocean, and curated new and exciting foot fungus. Come see us tomorrow night at Blockfort, 2920 Talmage Ave. SE Minneapolis, with FUTURE PUNX, Larry Wish and His Guys, and Products!
ATTENTION FACEBOOK USERS! MARK ZUCKERBERG, CEO AND FOUNDER OF FACEBOOK, IS PREPARING FOR A PRESIDENTIAL BID.
BEWARE: FACEBOOK HAS HARVESTED AND CONTINUES TO CURATE THE MOST COMPLETE AND THOROUGH PSYCHOANALYTIC DATA KNOWN TO MAN. THIS DATA IS INVALUABLE IN TARGET MARKETING BASED ON PERSONALITY TYPES AND DEMOGRAPHIC INFO WHICH ALLOWS FOR THE MOST IMPACTFUL MARKETING (SEE: PROPAGANDA) KNOWN TO PEOPLEKIND. A SUCCESSFUL ZUCKERBERG RUN FOR THE PRESIDENCY WOULD BE THE FINAL AND COM...PLETE REALIZATION OF THE LATE CAPITALIST SURVEILLANCE STATE. WE MUST STOP THIS FROM HAPPENING!!
PLEASE STREAM OUR ALBUM WHICH IS IN THIS LINK WHICH WE PAID FACEBOOK TO PROMOTE. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO THINK MORE ABOUT THIS TOPIC. CONSIDER PURSUING POLITICAL ACTIVISM, SOCIALIST POLITICAL MOVEMENTS, AND SUPPORTING THIRD PARTY CANDIDATES OR AT THE VERY LEAST LEARNING ABOUT THEM. LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AND LOVE YOURSELF! ALL ONE ONE ALL ALL ONE! DR BRONNER'S SOAP!
