Doomtree Records

Doomtree - Doomtree 2LP

Doomtree started as a mess of friends in Minneapolis, fooling around after school, trying to make music without reading the manual. The group had varied tastes – rap, punk, indie rock, pop – so the music they made together often bore the toolmarks of several styles. Of necessity, Doomtree's seven members (Cecil Otter, Dessa, Lazerbeak, Mike Mictlan, P.O.S, Paper Tiger, and Sims) figured out how to run a small business. A decade and over fifty releases later, it's all properly official. Although each member has a career as a solo artist, every so often the whole crew convenes to make a collaborative record as a group. Originally released in 2008 after years of burying songs in the back yard or putting out False Hopeses that they could brush off as experiments, this is the first "official" record by the entire crew co-produced by MK Larada and Lazerbeak.
