"Local Radar: The Ocean Blue, Dark Dark Dark and Love Lake"

Love Lake is a new band on the staff’s radar. They have a sophomore release on the way called Beachmaster, funded on Kickstarter last October. The lead cut “Dreamland” is an awesome piece of indie pop. It’s feel-good and makes sense. Not much else to it than that. When you hear a song that clicks instantly, you know the band has got their ears in check.

Information about the group is a little scarce though. They’ve been playing since 2011, and I must be blind, because I haven’t seen a bill with their name on it. Originally started as a solo project by frontman Anders Carlson in 2010, he has since added three other guys to the mix: Riley Walker, Shaughn McCurdy and Clay Sollenberger. Everyone sings and the album was tracked live, which is nuts considering how polished this lead single sounds.

More information to come as we dig deeper. - The Current Radio Station MPR Blog


"From the strong opening militaristic marching drums to the patriotic firework ending Minneapolis’ Love Lake has crafted a single that should have you waiting in anticipation for the album’s release in September. Sneaking in just in time to help round out what has been a positive productive summer in music this single rolls and sways in all the right places".--Nik from GPBP - Good Pop, Bad Pop

"Love Lake Curses"

"This is a really catchy pop song, with a warm sing-along chorus that’s just really fun. It’s got that carnival, marching band quality that feels very fourth of July. I’m so looking forward to more from Love Lake. You must grab this track". --Nada Alic - FRIENDS WITH BOTH ARMS


Still working on that hot first release.



Love Lake started as a one-man band, with singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Anders Carlson helming the process of producing its 2010 self-titled debut from start to near finish, having just a little help from his friends. The heart and love of melody present on that project is not lost on Anders' second album, Beachmaster, as he's added three bandmates to the mix -- Clay Sollenburger, Riley Walker, and Shaughn McCurdy, who all share vocal duties with Carlson. It definitely takes Love Lake out of the territory of navel-gazing solo act, and into the domain of true rock band.

Love Lake is currently playing out in Minneapolis and will release Beachmaster soon.
