Tricky Puts Final Touches on Knowle West Boy

Wednesday, May 21st, 2008

Chillville artist Tricky will be gracing us with a new album which drops on September 9 here in the U.S. The LP, entitled Knowle West Boy, is a project that has been going for a couple years and is now in its final stages. According to Tricky, he decided to rewrite the whole album due to its generic sound on the first cut. He started fresh in LA, where he wanted to get influences away from the London area. It should be a treat.

Track Listing:

  1. Puppy Toy
  2. Bacative
  3. Joseph
  4. Veronica
  5. C’mon Baby
  6. Council Estate
  7. Past Mistake
  8. Coalition
  9. Cross to Bear
  10. Slow
  11. Baligaga
  12. Far Away
  13. School Gates
  14. Knowle West Boy

Sunday, May 11th, 2008

Headstrong is the electronic band out of New York with mastermind Don Jackson at the reigns. They have one of those “ultimate chill out” sounds that is pretty overwhelming when you first hear their tracks. Today’s catch is “Love Calls”, which feature vocals by Kirtsy Hackshaw (who also sings for another Chillville band called Sleepthief). Expect to hear more from Headstrong throughout the weeks; they are too good not to be heard.  Enjoy!

Your Live Music Weekend

Friday, May 9th, 2008

Tonight is a Chillville night at Stubbs with Sounds Under Radio and Jets Under Fire. Sounds Under Radio has a big indie rock sound that you can get some idea of after hearing that one of their songs was on the Spiderman 3 soundtrack. Jets Under Fire is piano-heavy indie pop; a band that knows when to make crashing waves of noise, and when to fall back and let vocalist Jason Poe’s expressive voice carry them.

On Saturday, you should try and catch the What Made Milwaukee Famous show with The Whigs at Antones: WMMF, besides being homegrown, puts on an incredibly dynamic live show; if you like their recorded material you’ll love how much more they can bring to a concert. Definitely worth seeing, especially as they won’t be doing another show in town until their Austin City Limits appearance in fall. 101X has been playing ‘Sultan’ a lot recently, but check out ‘Self-Destruct’ for a more chill sound from them.

Also a strong contender for your Saturday evening, Black Tie Dynasty, another Chillville favorite, will be playing Red Eyed Fly at 9. Describing these guys as 80’s-influenced doesn’t do them justice; like VHS or Beta, they ride the fine line of acknowledging their musical predecessors without feeling like they are ripping them off. BTD gives a nostalgic nod to bands like The Smiths and Depeche Mode, and then innovatively reinterprets the sound. You’ve probably heard them on the show before, but make sure to also tune in this Sunday morning, when they’ll be in studio for an acoustic set that promises to rock in an entirely different way from the night before.
