Fort Wilson Riot

Fort Wilson Riot

This Minneapolis-based avant pop duo of Amy Hager and Jacob Mullis have no shortness of ambition. In 2011 they gave us the Generation Complex EP which experimented with pristine vocal harmonies married to jarring electro-garage-pop. Through 2012 and 2013 they made a mad dash around the USA into clubs, bars, living rooms and festivals like SXSW, CMJ, Midpoint Music Festival, Cataracts, Freakfest, and Independent’s Day.

Now they are scheming to unleash a new set of sounds into the world. With the former 12 Rods and Mystery Palace man, Ryan Olcott, at the production helm, Fort Wilson Riot promise an album that blurs boundaries while immersing the listener in hypnotic waves from some sunset alien shore. The first taste is "Yes Indeed," a sultry psychedelic R&B jam that showcases a new side of FWR and gives a tantalizing glimpse of the exciting new ground they are covering. Their new full-length, Trillium, released in early 2014.
