Last year Milwaukee shoegaze wizards Brief Candles broke from their usual tradition of taking their sweet damn time to release an EP with relatively quick turnaround. The Newhouse EP wasn't a huge departure for the group, and though it was quicker, looser and jauntier than the ornate shoegaze pastiches of their earlier efforts, it still pulled generously from the same pool of late '80s and early '...

Drummer Jon Mueller has spent a good chunk of the last couple of years recording, promoting and touring behind the latest Volcano Choir album, Repave, but that hasn't kept him from his many other projects. This month he'll release his latest record with Death Blues, Non Fiction, an album divided into two epic suites the length of an LP side, and today Tinymixtapes premiered the first taste of that...

It has a little slide for Hank to go down

By Shepherd Express Staff
Brewers fans visiting Miller Park this week will likely notice a new addition: The Hank House, "a roomy, one bedroom Cape Cod-style dwelling" for Hank, the team's resident mascot/philanthropist/dog. The name is a little misleading: It won't actually be Hank's home—he lives with a family—but it will serve as a home base of sorts for when Hank is at Miller Park, a place for him to pose for photo...

At least somebody found a use for the Milwaukee winter. The city's snow-packed streets provide a fittingly cold backdrop for Milwaukee rapper Yo-Dot's new video for "I'm On It," a chilly standout from this January's A Winter's Ration EP featuring haunting production from Hart Gunther. You can stream the Spaz Gordon-directed video below....

Watch their uplifting new "Coffee" video

March has been a fruitful month for Sylvan Esso, the electro/indie/soul tandem of former Milwaukeean Nick Sanborn (of Megafaun/Decibully/Made of Oak; he’s the half of the duo less likely to be mistaken as Sylvan Esso) and singer Amelia Meath (of Mountain Man; she also joined Sanborn at his Lend Me Your Voice Alverno Presents production at this fall). The group’s been collecting kind words from...

Hank the Dog has thoroughly monopolized the Milwaukee market's "awwwwww" coverage this month, but now he has some serious competition: Meet Lewis and Clark, the latest additions to West Bend's Shalom Wildlife Sanctuary. The sanctuary took in the cubs after they were abandoned by their mother, and has kept followers up to date on their development through its Facebook page, where the O.G. teddy bea...

Milwaukee’s Kane Place Record Club aren’t exclusively about feel-good kicks. Beneath the agreeable swing of the popular Milwaukee soul-pop band lays just the slightest note of something more sinister, and director John Roberts has a lot of fun playing up the band’s devilish side in his video for their misleadingly titled “Sunshine.” A former Milwaukee Film filmmaker in residence, Roberts...

Nearly every day since Gov. Scott Walker announced plans to strip collective bargaining rights from public workers in 2011, protesters have taken to the Capitol building to sing. Last summer the Capitol police cracked down, arresting hundreds of these "solidarity singers," including firemen, teachers, students and teenagers, some of which owe thousands of dollars in citations. In a video releas...
