"10 MN Music Acts Poised to Pop in 2017"

"Despite the group’s cheeky moniker and wry outlook on life, Lazy Scorsese are formidable mood makers with surplus depth.

Their October EP Grigio stirs an abundance of moods — from dread to ennui to bliss — in its scant four-song run." - City Pages


"Are You Local Best New Band Finalists"

A few years back, Anthony “Oz” Oslund posted on Craigslist, looking for potential bandmates. He wasn’t immediately successful, but eventually, because of that original post, four-fifths of Lazy Scorsese — frontman Oslund, guitarist David Donovan, bassist Chris Michaels and drummer Ryan Barrett — came together. (The guys later met keyboardist Tyler Devonald at a party.)

The band released its debut EP, “Grigio,” in October. A big part of its appeal comes from its sweeping, cinematic, occasionally psychedelic production quality. For that, producer Oslund is quick to praise Matt Bombich, who engineered and mixed the EP.

The songs aren’t particularly hook-driven, but it seems they’re catching on with listeners. In addition to ranking high among Are You Local? voters, the band was included in City Pages’ “10 Minnesota music acts poised to pop in 2017.”

“There does seem to be a little momentum right now,” Oz says. “It’s exciting; it’s cool to know people are paying attention.”

But Oslund wants to take a different approach to Lazy Scorsese’s next record. Where the EP was recorded over the course of a year (“things got really drawn out”), he’d like to “hole up” and make the next one in a matter of days.

For a band with the word “lazy” in its name, Oslund and Co. sure seem to be up and at ’em. - StarTribune
