Hello and welcome to Discovery Corner on BTR! This week we’ll be checking out Magpies–a band based out of Missoula, Montana that’s equal parts garage fuzz meltdowns and bittersweet harmonies and hooks. They’ve been around since 2007, but recently acquired a new lineup and dropped an album to showcase it. It’s called Tornado.
I’ll be talking with vocalist, guitarist, and principal songwriter Tolan Harbor about what it’s like being married to the band’s bass player, making music in Montana, and touring before making a record.
And don’t forget to check out the Discovery Artist feature on Magpies!
Upcoming Tour Dates
05/22/15 – Top Hat, Missoula, Montana
