With a heritage that includes Prince, the Replacements and Soul Asylum, Minneapolis has been a hotbed for music talent for a long time and it’s about time you add the Melismatics to that list. Formed in 2001, the combo delivers the kind of soulful power-pop that will have you singing along after the first verse-chorus pass.

The Melismatics have teamed up with producer Jon Auer (Posies singer/guitarist) for their newest album, ‘Rising Tide,’ and it’s stuffed to the rafters with more of the melodic hooks the band have always been known for.

Diffuser.fm is obviously in love with the group, so we’ve teamed up with the Melismatics to bring you the video premiere for their track ‘Close 2 the Vest.'
