“Gospel Gossip finds the common thread you never knew existed running through the emotional and aesthetic core of groups like Orange Juice, the Talking Heads, the Go Betweens and Black Tambourine. They distill the aching naiveté and expert songcraft of those artists, wrap it in dreamy reverb and bonecrushing distortion, and present the listener with one of the most emotionally resonant, unique, and infinitely-repeatable listening experiences in recent memory. The sheer force of this music as it jangles and roars, the way it will make you smile and tear up at the same time, is a testament to how deeply they understand what makes a certain kind of pop music work.” [Charlie Gokey, Secret Cities]

Formed back in 2008, Colder in Moscow earned success early on with their debut release, Great Speculation. Hot on the circuit, CIM played the legitimate clubs in town and opened for many of Minneapolis' finest, including the Love-Cars. In 2010, the drum chair opened up and Mound native Matthew Leonard joined the band. The band returned to Humans Win! Studio in August to begin work on a new album.
