Midwest Selects, Seth & Nik Helland, announced their "duoTour" spring tour dates along with the release of their new album "duo" on itunes.

The new album is getting good reviews and features 11 new songs including 'Voices Part II', an introspectively soulful number and one of my new favorites, '2 hot 2 argue', an intensely hot guitar solo.

Arguably the most popular track - and destined for greatness - is 'Cosa Nostra', it's a foreboding, rapid fire number that catches you by the cajones and holds through to the very end.

From an October 2012 Brainerd Dispatch article: "Midwest Selects began their venture into the music world in 2009 after what started as an after school joke with friends. The group has since flourished, with an album release in July, “Cue,” inching up the iTunes charts and through performances at venues around the state, including the hip hop coveted First Ave. Midwest Selects was also crowned “Next to Blow Up” in the 2012 Twin Cities Urban Music Awards and have seen the crowds at each concert grow tremendously."
