About

Miles Island Portrait ImageMiles Island makes 'psychedelic basement pop' music evoking the solitary winters and hazy summers of Minnesota.

It’s headed by Jim Bjorklun, who picked up guitar in college and has followed that path ever since. While playing in a handful of bands, he began feeling the need to create music as well.

Jim then set up in a glitchy mid-1990s recording studio, and eventually released a solo album. Soon afterward, he decided to try again. In addition to self-expression, this music should reach for certain ideals too ...

So upon finding a handful of guiding principles, and with a growing knack for mixing and producing, Jim dug in with a new sense of purpose.

When the dust finally settled, there were 13 completed tracks. The result is a mix of alternative rock and dance music, as refracted through the lens of psychedelic pop.

Ten of these songs became the debut album, which was released June 21, 2019. It’s also a roughly personal record, reflecting the peaks and valleys of a precarious time.
