Music for Morale: Joey Ryan & The Inks

Joey Ryan, as captain of the Augustana (S.D.) men’s basketball team, used to torch my beloved Minnesota State Mavericks. Imagine my surprise to find Ryan, a hell of a perimeter player, isĀ an evenĀ better musician. He’s the lead singer in Joey Ryan & the Inks. My understanding is these boys had quite the showing at South by Southwest this year. Understandable, considering infectious grooves like this one. Check out the rest of their album here.
