Listen, stream, or buy anywhere you like - Spotify, Apple, Bandcamp, Soundcloud, and even Tidal (lol). Mixed and produced by longtime collaborator Sahil Ansari, and mastered by the infamous Greg Calbi of Sterling Sound. Folk marries chamber pop in five new tender tracks!
In another stroke of genius, Michigan photographer / director Britta Lee delivers a second music video for Slow Dakota, this time for "Cherry Mary Michigan" (a song off the 2017 EP, Rumspringa). Shot and directed in Michigan, of course.
In November, 2017, Slow Dakota released a standalone single - "Areopagitica" - named after John Milton's classic essay on censorship and free expression.
On Oct 13, 2017, Slow Dakota released his latest EP of five songs: "Rumspringa," named after the rite of passage for Amish teenagers. (Sauerteig grew up flanked by Amish communities in his native Indiana). Produced and mixed by longtime collaborator, Sahil Ansari; mastered by Greg Calbi at Sterling Sound. Under a gloss of toe-tapping, electro production, Sauerteig explores urban isolation, and the gnawing call of rural life. Listen on Spotify, Bandcamp, iTunes, and YouTube.
Shot and directed by Brittabug in rural Michigan, featuring her younger sister, Lavendar. Conjuring up a Midwestern Eden, and a decidedly feminine realm. It's very beautiful and you should watch.
Slow Dakota's 2015 single, "The Lilac Bush" opens the 2017 NYFW show, and reappears again midway through. Thanks, Oscar!
Directed and edited by Brad Bores - featuring high church footage from Chicago.
