Song of the Day - September 12, 2006

What Made Milwaukee Famous have just released their debut album Trying to Never Catch Up. It's a fun, but not too serious music from a band that is named after the famous Schlitz beer slogan. In fact, the band used to be known as Beer. Another interesting tidbit is that the band is from Austin, TX, not Wisconsin. They recently appeared on Austin City Limits with Franz Ferdinand and will be touring with The Long Winters and Menomena, both excellent bands. Their album is a mixture of styles with a heavy 80's synthesizer sound and a more lyrical post-Beatles sound focusing on pop sounding harmonies and catchy riffs. In the post-Beatles category, I would place songs like "Almost Always Never" and "Judas." However, it is the opening track, "Idecide," which immediately caught my attention with its quirky synthesizer riffs and vintage 80's sound. Click here to listen.
