The Ultrasounds
The Ultrasounds
The Winona foursome known as The Ultrasounds formed in the summer of 2011 when Megan Hanson, former front woman of Winona’s punk-rock titans, Thumbelina and the Tangerine Fists of Justice, was introduced to Amber Fletcher, Courtney Guenveur, and Kelly Mason. The three were students at Winona State University sharing a similar vision of starting an all girl band and had sought out Megan based on her previous music, Winona street cred, and "scary myspace profile". Fletcher was a multi-instrumentalist and quite a large fury behind the drum set compared to her diminutive stature. Courtney joined in on bass. Kelly Mason, who was playing with various local bands at the time and jazz, took on the role of guitarist, trumpet player, and even drums when Amber stepped away from the set to play and sing the songs she had written.

The band started to make waves locally almost instantly. They got to open for Minneapolis act Venus de Mars and All The Pretty Horses for their very first show. Shortly after, they started playing regularly at various local venues and bars and were even featured on local radio station KQAL's live feed program. Everything seemed fine and dandy.

But then unexpectedly, Mason moved across the country to pursue other musical endeavors. The remaining members of The Ultrasounds were saddled with filling her void to continue when they realized they did not want to function as a three-piece, which they had experimented with. What started out as an all girl band had come to an end when Todd Hanson, Megan's husband and bandmate in My Private Eye, joined the band. Bringing along his sludgy, overdriven guitar sounds and noise, the group started to take on a louder and heavier direction. And after some positive show reviews at Mid West Music Fest from Minneapolis music press like City Pages and The Current, it seemed as though things were back on track and headed in the right direction.

The Ultrasounds released their debut recording, the "Lost My Mind EP" March 7, 2014. Packed tightly into their unreliable, yet beloved, 2000 Chrysler mom-van (Ol' Whitey), they stumbled across the upper Midwest into cities such as Minneapolis, Chicago, Milwaukee, and Dubuque in support of the album. They brought their sludgy garage-pop to dive bars, hookah lounges, and Motel 6s alike. With an upcoming Summer tour, they're set to trudge even deeper into the Midwestern heartland. To infinity and beyond.
STNNNG
STNNNG
Stnnng doesn't perform a two-guitar, 100-proof brand of angular punk as much as it unleashes it. Distorted, but carefully mapped, guitar lines slash and stab at listeners' ears, weaving around each other before they crash into a pummeling wall of percussion or singer Besinger roars into the spotlight.
