What Made Milwaukee Famous

What Made Milwaukee Famous

What Made Milwaukee Famous is a band from Austin, Texas, with a diverse sound. The band definitely borrows from the past few decades and their lead singer reminds me a bit of Jeff Buckley. The band is made up of Michael Kingcaid, Drew Patrizi, John Farmer and Josh Vernier. Their debut record, "Trying to Never Catch Up" was released in June of last year and you can listen to some songs at their official site. You can also check out their video there for "Selling Yourself Short" as well as buy the cd.

Sons and Daughters - Ain't they cool?

Sons and Daughters is a band from Glasgow, Scotland. Their sound is hard folk/rock with a female and male vocalist in Adele Bethel and Scott Paterson. They've been compared to Cat Power and Smog and there are definitely similarities. Their first record "Love the Cup" was released in 2003 is a tribute to Johnny Cash. Their most recent record "The Repulsion Box" was released in August of this year. Check out their official site for some photos and mp3s. Buy "Love the Cup" or "The Repulsion Box".
