On a sleepy street in Saint Paul, a residential basement comes alive once a week-that’s when the members of Communist Daughter gather to practice the melodic, rhythmic rock songs that have made them a hometown (and increasingly, national) favorite. Click on the SoundCloud track to hear them play “Don’t Remember Me” at a recent rehearsal. The song will be on their upcoming EP, Lions and Lambs, to be released July 10 on Grain Belt Records.

And for special insights into the space where they hone their sound, click on the photo below. Don’t miss Communist Daughter’s performance at the Varsity Theater, airing on MN Original this Sunday, at 6pm on tpt 2.
