Frankie Lee: Back in the Middle West

Frankie Lee

Of being a musician, Frankie Lee says, “You shouldn’t want to do this…It’s just an insane way to make a living. It’s not even a choice.” 

Well, whatever compelled the Minnesotan, after 15 years of songwriting, to finally put out his first EP, we’re glad. Middle West is the title, and with only five finely-crafted songs, you could say it’s a bit of a masterpiece…and frankly, you’d be right.

The New Red Moons are back. Well, they didn’t really go anywhere  – they’ve just been working on their new album, Mesmérisme. But it’s been well-worth the wait.

With an original sound that blends rich melodies, tight harmonies, and punchy instrumentals, The New Red Moons do Milwaukee proud. They take inspiration from many genres, including 60s rock, old-timey folk and modern lo-fi, but they always follow their instincts to stay true to their own sound.
