Album of the Week: Liz Longley

Mar 4, 2015
www.lizlongley.com

Honest transparency isn’t the easiest thing to come by in musicians these days. Often times, music is shrouded by a façade to fit a certain image or appeal. This is definitely not the case with singer/songwriter Liz Longley. The Nashville-based artist takes pride in the honesty of each track she writes. Having lived in and out of minivans for a large part of her musical journey; she never has a shortage of true stories to depict.

Inside Jokes With Jonny Fritz

Mar 3, 2015

The six-string successors of country music are tuning up, and it's Jonny Fritz's turn at the mic. Contrary to the country charlatans who purport the genre today, some authentic performers are releasing compelling work free of the recycled cliches that pervade contemporary country music. 

The Living Statues Come To Life

Feb 25, 2015
Rachel Owens

Hold on to your hat people. That is the first and last word of advice I have. They are The Living Statues, a rock n’ roll trio based here in the Cream City. They mix the pop sensibilities of the British Invasion with “explosive garage rock textures.”

  In December WUWM@Nite sent Skubs to check out Milwaukee’s local SoFar Concert series. The artists featured this time were D’Amato, Jordin Bass, Thriftones and Klassik - all from Milwaukee -  and played the old Stonelfy venue, which is now Company Brewing. Skubs had a chance to speak with each of the artists about family heritage, how each song was conceived, and got them to reveal their musical guilty pleasures.

Guests:

Album of the Week: Human Kindness by Willy Porter

Feb 24, 2015
willyporter.bandcamp.com

Such a large amount of the music, in any genre, has become so strictly defined and crafted that it has become diluted to the point of sameness. This makes it all the more refreshing to have artists like Willy Porter who can’t be pigeonholed. Porter, a Milwaukee native has had an incredibly enduring music career; spanning over two decades in length. Unquestionably talented, with powerful vocals and masterful guitar work, it’s a wonder as to why he has remained something of a ‘hidden gem’.

The Delta Routine Stay Positive On New LP

Feb 20, 2015

“I really put myself on the page,” says Nick Amadeus of the songs on the Delta Routine’s latest album, You and Your Lion. The band celebrates the release of their 11-track album Sunday, February 22nd.

The touring atmosphere Amadeus immersed himself in provided a new lens to write from. “Gone Again” and “Home With You” chronicle the transient life Amadeus and band have faced since releasing their last album, Cigarettes and Caffeine Nightmares.

Luke Jacobs Goes Solo

Feb 19, 2015

Bruce Winter spoke with Luke Jacobs about storytelling, working with Carrie Rodriguez and the meaning of his new album title - Velvet After Feel. 

"A record is a big process and it can be kind of rough. To get it done and smooth it out feels really good," Jacobs says. "There's a velvety after feel to the whole process." 

Songs featured:

1. "The Trouble With Love"

2. "Remembering"

Ellagraph Studios

If you were born in the 1970s, you probably had a pretty solid relationship with Marlo Thomas and her famous Free to Be, You and Me album. 

Devil Met Contention: Songs From The Crossroads

Feb 18, 2015

“People say, ‘You should sing like you’ and at this point I’m happy saying I sing like myself,” says Ehson Rad, lead singer of Devil Met Contention.

The Milwaukee four-piece celebrates the release of their new EP, American Times, February 26th at Hotel Foster.

Rad was born in Las Cruces, New Mexico and has lived in Texas, Michigan and now Milwaukee. The musical heritage of those places and his transient upbringing inform songs like “Snakeskin Blues.”

Ex Fabula hosted a night of stories in the spirit of love, lust and murder at Anodyne Coffee in Walker’s Point on Saturday, January 24th. Milwaukee’s Panalure performed a set featuring songs from their latest release, The Bones ­­- our current “Album of the Week.”

Milwaukee musician Peter Woods shared a tour story about how his band E=MC Hammer unexpectedly played to a room full of funeral mourners and almost got talked into staying with a crazed host.
