Ice Palace, besides sounding like either a Bond villain's hideout or where Superman goes to be all emo, is an emerging Minneapolis rock/pop quartet. Their current release, Bright Leaf Left, came out early in the year but just recently found its way into my hands. These guys/gal pretty seamlessly wander from endearing pop to post-rock and back, with interesting lyrics and meaty hooks.
