Dead Man Winter is the solo project from Trampled by Turtles' frontman Dave Simonett. Dead Man Winter began officially in 2011, but returned in earnest a few years ago in the wake of Simonett’s divorce. After retreating to the north Minnesota woods, his separation yielded an outpouring of feelings—self-loathing and guilt, existentialism and fear. As a result, he encapsulates heartbreak on his latest LP Furnace. If you’re expecting something that’s sparse, dour, and indicative of the cold and overcast Minnesota winter, you’ll be sorely disappointed. Instead what you find is almost the opposite, at least in the production and music. A record steeped in deep folk rock traditions, the songs are brisk and the melodies are amiable, almost playful at times, even if they overlay stories that are cuttingly brutal in their honest account of Simonett’s personal failings and his intimate feelings about them.
