Over the past few years, Minnesota indie-rock band Hippo Campus, has made it to the top of 'Bands to Watch' lists around the world. These guys came out of the St. Paul Conservatory of Music and have a very educated knowledge of music. And they know how to write a hook.
Their sophomore LP, Bambi, is out digitally this Friday (physical copies are available for pre-sale now). Nathan Stocker (guitar/vocals) spoke with us on New Music this week about the new songs, supporting and empowering women, what he's reading, and listening to ABBA.
