Milwaukee rockers Dogs in Ecstasy sound like the type of musicians who are always heading to libraries and coffee shops because they don't have their own Internet connection at home, so it's somewhat ironic that the group's latest single, "I Google Myself"/"I'm a Man," is a treatise on online culture. Regardless of whether the word Google is taken literally or as a double entendre, each of these s...

This week on The Disclaimer, WMSE's weekly panel with Ryan Schleicher, Matt Wild and I, we cover a lot of ground as we talk all things reunions. In the wake of news that Decibully is regrouping for a Milwaukee Day concert, Matt and Ryan suggest some other local bands that they'd like to see get back together. But are bands ever as good the second time around? I explain why I'm burned out on reunio...

It's a Milwaukee Day miracle! The late, great indie-rock band Decibully, which played their last show in 2011, and the rootsy rock band Juniper Tar, which went on hiatus last year after singer-guitarist Jason Mohr moved away, will reunite for "one night only" performances as part of Milwaukee's favorite made-up holiday. The show will be Monday, April 14 (4-14, like the area code) at Turner Hall Ba...

For the last few years, Milwaukee's Ryan Weber has essentially been a one-man mobile studio, recording and producing using his laptop and whatever other light equipment he can carry with him as he travels the world. Weber tracked his contributions to his most recent album with longtime collaborator Eric Osterman as Eric and Magill, Night Singers, while serving in the Peace Corps in a remote stretc...

This week on The Disclaimer, WMSE's weekly panel with station promotions director Ryan Schleicher, A.V. Club Milwaukee editor Matt Wild and I, we're joined by Nick Sanborn, a once-prolific contributor to the Milwaukee music scene who has since moved to Raleigh, where he now plays with Megafaun.

 By the time Fashionable Life, the follow-up to Faux Fir’s 2010 self-titled EP, first hits Milwaukee’s ears this weekend, it will have already traveled across the country to Oregon and back before traversing in abbreviated portions to remote expanses of eastern Africa during its three-plus-year journey to vinyl. The

I can’t recall the exact wording, but there’s a great quip about the way age shapes how we identify with music: Everybody believes that the greatest period for music just happened to occur when they were young. There’s a lot of truth to that, of course. Music never sounds quite so thrilling or important as it does during youth, where you're experiencing it for the first time and still fleshi...

A technology-forward update on the Postal Service’s remote-album formula, Eric & Magill’s 2010 debut All Those I Know was pieced together by long-distance friends Eric Osterman and Ryan Weber, former players in the indie-rock band Camden who were living in Michigan and Milwaukee, respectively. Making the most of their Wi-Fi connections, the two swapped song ideas, piecing together the albu...

April 2, 2011

Late last week, the blogosphere buzzed with the news that longtime Milwaukee rockers Decibully would be going on hiatus following their April 2 performance at the Cactus Club. Band co-founder Ryan Weber was set to leave the city for a stint in the Peace Corps...

It would be easy for Milwaukee-based hardcore band No Future to play the scenester card and have everything happen for them rather quickly. After all, the five band members—Andy Silverman, Brad Clifford, Kenny Siebert, Eric Alonso and Ryan Smith—have been in such noted acts as Since By Man, Decibully, Seven Days of Samsara, Poison the Well and Red Knife Lottery. Yet band members cringe...
