Back in February, Minnesota natives Hippo Campus, fresh out of high school, released their debut EP Bashful Creatures and they’ve been picking up steam ever since. In fact, shortly after the EP was released, the band was among the most talked about new acts at SXSW. Now I realize that all of this was a while ago, but with a very busy summer of touring ahead for the guys, including major festivals like Lollapalooza, Made In America, Reading, and Leeds, it seemed like a good time to revisit their impressive six song set that includes singles “Suicide Saturday” and “Little Grace.”
My ulterior motive is to share my recent interview with Hippo Campus and the live performance that goes along with it, for our latest Submodern Session. Listen to this exclusive session HERE and please share it with your listeners on your station’s website or social media. You can also see video of this performance, recorded at Bourbon & Branch in Philadelphia, here. If you’re interested in airing this or any SubModern Session on your show, please contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
After listening to the session you can check out their Gallagher-esque video for “Little Grace” that we talked about here, or their appearance on Conan here. Find out tour dates and more at HippoCampusBand.com or GrandJuryMusic.com.
