This week on The Disclaimer, WMSE’s weekly half hour of opinions with Ryan Schleicher, Matt Wild and I, we offer one of our favorite annual traditions: our fall concert preview. Typically autumn is the most concert-rich time of the year in Milwaukee, yet this fall we’re less excited about the concert lineup than usual. Despite plenty of good shows and a few notably big ones, there are only a h...

With EMA

By Evan Rytlewski
Over their many years together, Austin indie-rockers Spoon developed a reputation for consistency, releasing a highly acclaimed album every couple of years or so, including four great albums in a row during the ’00s (or five great albums in a row, depending on how you view 2010’s divisive Transference).

Over a herky-jerk pulse that changes remarkably little from song to song (or album to album), the indie-rock foursome can evoke just about any genre it wants through just the slightest shifts. Add a punchy groove and you have the brittle funk of “I Turn My Camera On.” Play up the piano and you get the cocky swagger...

Spoon last came through Milwaukee as part of their breakthrough year in 2007, touring behind their album Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga with a well-received show at Summerfest, then a return to the city that October for a long, heated performance at the Pabst Theater, where they appeared happy to be on the road again after spending the week preparing for their debut appearance on "Saturday Night Live." They slowe...

The common knock against the White Rabbits? "They're derivative." My retort? "So what?" The Walkmen may have mined this territory first, but White Rabbits are the ones coming away with more gold. On their second outing, It's Frightening, White Rabbits wear their influences on their album sleeve�that the record was produced ...
