WMSE Song of the Day (Tune In, Turn Up): Slow Walker “Livin’ Underground”

The Milwaukee quartet (Slow Walker) that classifies themselves as ‘garbage rock’ rides the line between garage, grunge and surf . And contrary to the adjective in their name, the band is more than a little animated. Despite their music’s brisk and unforgiving pace (listen to “Livin’ Underground”, below), they manage to cram a whole lotta guitars, hard-hitting drums and catchy vocal melodies to be a righteous and hook-y cross between local rock veterans The Etiquette and the garage-styled power-pop of The Midwest Beat. Andy Patterson, Nick Fulsher, Justin Harris, Adam Baas take super-carbonated tunes like “Livin’ Underground” and “City Slicker”  and make them pop and fizz in between more angular rockers like “Stranger Trippin'” on their Good For Business release, recently recorded at local Sounds OK! Studio.
