“It’s only four songs, but each track on this bravely personal EP by the newly Minneapolis-based singer/songwriter tells a unique part of her story. She pushes off from her old life and lover with the barnstorming opener “The Sh– I Left in Duluth,” gets down and out about the hipster bar scene in “Minnesota Goodbye” before baring the scars and capturing the lingering torment of sexual assault in “Petty Misdemeanor” — as bold a feat in songwriting as heard by any Minnesotan this year.”- Minneapolis Star Tribune
“Hauntingly poetic, warmly voiced rocker” – Minneapolis Star Tribune
“It’s for someone who wants something fresh and uninhibited; something stimulating and candid; and something instinctive and unbridled. It’s a winner.” – Duluth News Tribune
The video, directed by Jon Hain, delivers touches of melancholy, loneliness, and nostalgia, as Bue performs against a backdrop of clouds set in a vast blue sky, infusing the images with remote nuances of uneasiness as well as a glimmer of optimism.
Full of grunge-pop energy, “The Shit I Left in Duluth” is outstanding, pulsing with vivacious colors, an infectious rhythm, and Mary Bue’s satisfying voice.
