When asked how to describe the Good Colonels sound, guitarist/vocalist Codie Leseman replied, “These days, I’d like to say space funk. But space is a very cold place.” Agreeably so, but then again so is Duluth. Joining Leseman in the trio, bassist Joe Conaway and drummer Curtis Mattson execute their duties in pushing out the band’s euphorically apocalyptic strain of post rock, reminiscent of Scandinavian psychedelia with undertones of punk. In addition to their musical contributions through a diverse array of projects over the years, the band’s members have organized a decade’s worth of Kurtfests in their hometown of Eveleth.
