This week's download comes from the band Lake Street Dive and their new album Bad Self Potraits. You have a week to download their song "You Go Down Smooth." Lake Street Dive will also be playing Summerfest this year.
Lake Street Dive have been performing for nearly a decade after meeting as fellow students at the New England Conservatory in Boston. The band was hand picked by Minneapolis trumpet/guitar player Mike Olson and named after an actual neighborhood of seedy bars in his hometown. Vocalist Rachael Price came from outside Nashville, Tennessee, stand-up bassist Bridget Kearney was an Iowa native, while drummer Mike Calabrese called Philadelphia home.
