SXSW Preview: What Made Milwaukee Famous

Image hosting by Photobucket

Based in Austin, What Made Milwaukee Famous is poised to blow up this year and there's every indication that SXSW will be their launching pad. Their debut, Trying To Never Catch Up, might be one of the best albums I've heard this year, with songs that combine quirky electronic indie, moody dark pop and whatever else the band may be into that minute. The band isn't that far from burrowing their way into every hipster's ipod, so check out their SXSW shows, which should have the feeling of being in the eye of the storm right before things blow up.
