New What Made Milwaukee Famous


One of the crown jewels of our lovely local music scene, What Made Milwaukee Famous, is putting out their sophomore album on Barsuk records on 3.4.08. The new album's called What Doesn't Kill Us and if the assorted bits of it I have heard thus far are any indication, it's going to be amazing. Here's one of the songs from the new album, "Resistance Street". Stereogum thinks it sounds like Radiohead, and I don't entirely disagree with that statement. To me, it sounds like a band hitting on all cylinders and magnifying every good thing they've ever done while adding in some nice little flourishes. It sounds like I love it. Enjoy.
