This song "Archie, Marry Me" gets stuck in my head most days.
Ahead of a sold out gig at Northrop opening for the Decemberists, Alvvays stopped by The Current studio to chat with host Mary Lucia and to perform tracks off their self-titled debut album.

10 years of good times at +The Current!
Over the course of 10 years at The Current, each day rushes by so quickly, it's hard to process all that has happened. So we've created a timeline to lay out all the years and key milestones in an engaging format. As you browse, we hope it will stir all kinds of great memories while inspiring anticipation for a whole lot more to come.

Track 4 nearly killed me. So funky.
Secret Stash Records of Minneapolis is releasing the first in-depth collection of music recorded by what was once one of Chicago's most prominent African-American-run labels, One-derful! Records. Hear the first Volume of this collection exclusively at The Current.

Ahead of two nights of shows at First Avenue in Minneapolis, Bob Mould stopped by The Current's studio for a live on-air chat with Jim McGuinn.

My favorite songs of 2014. 
As each year winds down, The Current makes a list of the best music of the year. We could do it ourselves, but it wouldn't be as interesting or thought provoking without your input. That's where Top 89 comes in. Fill out a ballot with your Top 10 songs of the year - we'll tabulate 'em - and tune in New Year's Eve to hear the Top 89 countdown.

Been digging this band a lot lately. Missed the show, but here are some great shots from Jungle's stop at First Avenue.
Jungle brings the heat back to Minneapolis London, UK modern soul collective Jungle, brought the heat back to Minneapolis with a stop at First Avenue. The show didn't sell out, but those in attendance packed the floor and surrounding areas of the mainroom and rocked hard from the get go. Jun

Well that's 45 minutes of my life I'll never get back. I just kept expecting at least one good song.

With the wealth of options for consuming music, do you ever wonder how  musicians get paid? +The Current breaks it down.
