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"

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. 

“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.

“If you try to solve a problem by a problem, it will never be solved,” says Albert Mazibuko, who has been a full-time member of Ladysmith Black Mambazo since 1973.

The ever-evolving vocal group is a South African institution - but their songs of peace, love and understanding have also left a vast footprint in American music history.

Their traditional singing style, known as isicathamiya (is-cot-a-ME-Ya), was developed in the mines of South Africa and rose to prominence in America through Paul Simon’s Graceland and the Lion King soundtrack.

From cover band to creating their own dark, explorative, introspective work, Milwaukee band “Panalure” releases their new album ‘The Bones’. Being their third musical effort, the band has had time to craft and hone their sound, playing to the strengths of each member. Their sound has graduated to new levels over the past few years as they have become a more cohesive unit and finally establishing the well-written stories they want to tell.

A bluesy, classic-rock sound is rolling out of the Midwest. With a sound that could fit into categories with bands like The White Stripes, The Black Keys and The Rolling Stones, Milwaukee-based band, The Delta Routine, is definitely on to something. With a style that borrows from so many genres and bands, the group makes sure that they can’t be put under any one category exclusively. Their sound is fresh, rough, charging, infectious and incredibly unique.
