Listen to Sat. Nite Duets 7-inch split with Fatty Acids, Radical Dads & Dinosaur Feathers

torrential zen ep

Everyone’s favorite Wisconsin slackers, Sat. Nite Duets, are  sharing a four-way 7-inch split with fellow Milwaukeeans Fatty Acids along with New York’s Radical Dads and Dinosaur Feathers. The four-song EP is titled  “Torrential Zen.” Drummer Joe Guszkowski of Sat. Nite Duets  gave us the low down on the project.


Review: Ty Segall and Thee Oh Sees garage rock nirvana

I knew something was up when the long line of fans waiting patiently to enter the High Noon Saloon snaked out into the parking lot. This was no ordinary crowd. Garage rock fanatics from Milwaukee and Chicago joined Madison fans in a Saturday night meeting of the minds to worship Ty Segall and Thee Oh Sees. Yes, a true taste of lo-fi San Francisco guitar driven angst. In addition, Madison bands The Hussy and Trin Tran were on hand to add some local flavor.

Ty Segall

Prolific Ty Segall has no shortage of new material. The San Francisco rocker has released two full-length albums already this year. His third album, Twins, arrives on Oct. 9th.  The psychedelic inspired guitarist merges 60's garage rock of The Sonics and The Seeds with the lo-fi indie sound of his peers like the Black Lips and Thee Oh Sees.


Montreal troubadours Plants and Animals thrive in live setting

plants and animals

Few places in the world harbor better artists than Montreal; Leonard Cohen, Arcade Fire, Chromeo and Grimes all call the Canadian culture center home. That’s why I was looking forward to Montreal's Plants and Animals in the intimate surroundings of The Frequency in Madison on a Saturday night. It was final exam week at UW-Madison and although students were scarce, the crowd was made up of hard-core fans. Many of whom came  from outside the city to see a great live show and no one left disappointed.
