Def Jam rappers aren’t the only ones subject to development hell. Milwaukee’s saturnine indie-rockers Decibully took years to craft a follow-up to 2005’s Sing Out America, only to learn their one-time label, Polyvinyl, has no interest in releasing it (a slap in the face, considering how the label still makes time for all the side projects that Tim and Mike Kinsella crap out). It could be quite a while until the band finds a distributor for their new World Travels Fast, a sonically amorphous collection of trans-global Americana, but in the meantime the band is streaming the record online, testifying however unintentionally to the album’s themes of instant communication.

Poll

The Milwaukee Common Council is debating a proposal that would reduce the municipal fine for possessing a small amount of marijuana from $250-$500 per violation to no more than $50 per violation. Do you support this change?
