What Made Milwaukee Famous? Well it wasn't this band,
because they're from Austin. But it has helped promote the Texas
music scene a little. Though changing the name to What Made Austin
Famous, just doesn't seem the same.
Trying To Never Catch Up is their debut LP and was just
released off of a small indie label: Barsuk Records, also not
in Milwaukee, but rather Seattle. I don't know a whole lot about
this band, but I don't really need to, their music speaks for
itself. Death Cab For Cutie, Radiohead, Jeff
Buckley, Snow Patrol, and even The Beatles are
all names that come to mind when listening to this album. Their
music is smooth, melodic and fresh. And at the same time their
lyrics are sentimental, intelligent and angst-filled.
11 songs that can make you laugh or cry, pout or smile. Ok, maybe
not laugh. But definitely feel an emotion or two. Check them out;
maybe someday they will make Milwaukee famous. If all else, they
will sure help Austin.
