It’s Network Week on BTR, so I’m taking some fashion cues from a hot new addition to the style network in my hometown of Minneapolis, MN. Askov Finlayson is a craft and quality-focused boutique for men, opened in 2011 by brothers Eric and Andrew Dayton. The storefront stocks independent labels from MN, the USA, and abroad, and is part of a Minneapolis neighborhood trifecta of cool, sitting alongside the Dayton brothers’ other two businesses, farm-to-table restaurant The Bachelor Farmer, and the elegantly laid-back Marvel Bar. On today’s show, we’ll hear from co-founder Eric Dayton about why he chose to invest in the Twin Cities culture scene, a few of the local and long-distance labels carried in Askov Finlayson, their newly developed in-house label, and the quirky story behind the boutique’s unusual name. Plus, a playlist full of indie Minnesota music genius, including tracks from the Eastern European-influenced Dark Dark Dark, Jagjaguwar labelees Peter Wolf Crier, Paste Magazine favorite We Are The Willows, and more. So take a wintery trip up north with me to my hometown, and embrace some its rustically refined style here on BTR!
Today's show includes music from Father John Misty, Tara Jane O'Neil, Brian Lopez, and many more!
