Tune in to 91.7 FM today as we welcome locals Trent Fox & the Tenants into the WMSE studios to play a live set on WMSE DJ Andy Turner’s Zero Hour program at 2:30 p.m. [CST]. The band has just finished up their first official release, a 7″/EP on Kind Turkey Records called Mess Around (check out a video for the title track, *here*) and held their official release show last week in Milwaukee. Check out another song on the EP called “Old Lady”, below.
Trent Fox & the Tenants have been gaining attention amongst Milwaukeeans and otherwise for their straight-up garage-rock sound, mussed up with a little dirty blues for good measure. Kind Turkey writes, “Everybody around the country might be talking about longstanding Milwaukee acts Jaill and the Goodnight Loving, but the kids of Milwaukee are screaming the praises of relative newcomers Trent Fox & the Tenants, a band of four 20-somethings living it up in the seedy but thriving underground basement scene of Riverwest, Milwaukee.” With performance creds linked to Holly Golightly, Nobunny, The Points, Wax Museums and Thomas Function, it’s clear that these boys have chops to stand tall onstage.
