Gayngs - Relayted


Gayngs are an indie band from Minneapolis. Founded by producer Ryan Olson, their debut album Relayted features 23 musicians – members of a variety of Minneapolis bands including Solid Gold, Megafaun, Lookbook, Leisure Birds, Rhymesayers (rapper POS), the Rosebuds, Bon Iver – Mike Noyce appears here on guitar and vocals, while Justin Vernon lends his sweet falsetto to a couple of tracks.

Their first album, Relayted, was released by Jagjaguwar and receives positive reviews for its unique vocal stylings, a 1980s soft rock-inspired sound and a retro-but-contemporary sound. The Guardian called the album "a triumph" and listed it as "the album of the year". Stereogum placed Gayngs in the 40 best new bands in 2010.

Hereafter a video of the first show at First Avenue in Minneapolis. Song is The Gaudy Side of Town.

My favorite song is Faded High:
