While reading the music section over at our peeps at OnMilwaukee.com, I can across this interview with Milwaukee band The New Loud. The band has been around for awhile, but away from the scene until now. The band has very fun and exciting sound blending elements of new wave, punk, and electro. The y will be releasing an EP called "Can't Stop Now Knowing" in February and full length a few weeks later. The New Loud is a trio featuring Shane Olivo, Jessi Nakles and Radish Beat (aka Tim Frank). They will be also releasing a 12" featuring the track "Heaven", which will also have a remix by legendary dub master Mad Professor! I'm really looking forward to this EP.
Last night, The New Loud rocked and after set party for Yo La Tengo with Chicago's Hood Internet in Madison. You can catch in Milwaukee on February 6th at The Cactus Club for their EP release, and then for a 12" release party for the Mad Professor remix of Heaven on March 26th at Club Garibaldi. In the meantime, check out this fun video for their latest single "Don't Dance". The video is director by Milwaukee's Jack Packard of Funny or Die.
