“Needing a place to chill and write the material that would become his debut solo album Stranger Angels, the co-founder of The Pines one night found himself on this remote island on the northwest portion of Lake Superior.

“Huckfelt’s sabbatical proved extremely fruitful. He wrote 16 songs in the woods and brought his bounty back to civilization. The 12 songs that make up Stranger Angels were recorded in a 3-day session at a 110-year-old farmhouse studio in Menomonie with Huckfelt’s band the Unarmed Forces, which includes drummer J.T. Bates; bassist Darin Gray; singers/guitarists Erik Koskinen, Jeremy Ylvisaker and Michael Rossetto; singers Dave Simonett and Amelia Meath; electronica artist/sampler Andrew Broder, and organist Phil Cook.” –City Pages
