Woke up this morning to a pleasant surprise – one of the Twin Cities’ best bands, Dark Dark Dark, has released a brand new EP cheekily entitled Bright Bright Bright. I hope to listen to it in its entirety soon, but for now here is the first tune that they have made available, the self titled track. The rest is available for purchase here.
If the first song is any indicator, the EP is going to be fantastic, right up there with the band’s stunning debut LP The Snow Magic, at the very least. The mournful beauty and epic climactic build are really a pleasure to listen to on such a dreary winter day.
The band also just announced a nationwide tour that kicks off on Feb. 20th at the Hex, takes them throughout the South (with a SXSW stop) East, and Midwest, and finally culminates on April 15th back here with a concert at our very own Cedar Cultural Center.

NEWBORN GIRL IS LEFT IN CAR IN NORWELL
The Boston Globe (Boston, MA) September 13, 1990 | Patricia Nealon, Globe Staff NORWELL – A newborn girl who was tucked into a diaper bag and abandoned in a car outside a local medical clinic Tuesday was safe in a Hingham foster home yesterday.
But police and social workers still had few clues about the child’s parents or why the healthy infant was left on the front seat of a Norwell couple’s car, who were at the clinic to pick up medical records. site south shore medical center
Det. Sgt. Donald Bongarzone of the Norwell Police Department said police had received no leads on the baby’s parents, but they had received several calls from people interested in taking the baby. “We’re getting the word out in the hope that the young girl or whoever it is will come forward so we can help her out,” Bongarzone said. “I think that’s what she needs, more than prosecution.” Rosemarie Mesheau, 56, of Norwell, said she and her husband, Charles, 66, had stopped at the South Shore Medical Center on Route 53 to pick up some medical records. Expecting that it would be a quick errand, the couple left the car unlocked, something Mrs. Mesheau said they had done only “once or twice in our married life.” Because the records were not ready, they were inside about 15 minutes, she said. When they returned to the car, Mrs. Mesheau said, her husband noticed a diaper bag on the driver’s side of the front seat. go to site south shore medical center
“My husband said, ‘Somebody put a diaper bag in the car by mistake,’ ” she said in a telephone interview yesterday. “Then he said, ‘Oh my gosh, there is a baby in that diaper bag because it is moving’. . . . It was unnerving.” The baby, who was wearing a diaper and wrapped in a blanket, was brought into the clinic, where she was examined by a pediatrician and found to be in good health. The doctor told police that the baby, who was estimated to be between four and 10 days old, probably had not been born in a hospital because there was no pin prick on the heel of one foot, which would have indicated that a standard blood test for newborns had been done.
The Department of Social Services picked up the infant early Tuesday night and brought her to a Hingham foster home. A DSS spokeswoman, Lorraine Carli, said cases of healthy newborns being abandoned are extremely rare.
Carli said DSS would work with police to find the parents. If they cannot be found, the agency would pursue adoption proceedings, she said. NEALON;09/12 LDRISC;09/13,20:48 BABY13 Patricia Nealon, Globe Staff
