sidead_10.jpgCatching up with Milwaukee's own Fever Marlene means finding their fresh new album White China. The album follows on the heels of their stunning debut Civil War and sees the guys finding new range to their expression by exploring the creative potential of limitations... like recording the album with a stripped down recording rig and then doing the actual recording at New York's Chelsea Hotel ...like using ordinary objects to fortify their rhythm section... yes, there is glass breaking in that beat. I'll be playing the RadioMilwaukee premier of the song "Lemon King Mahoney" at about 12:30 today, but if you want to catch the whole album HERE is a link to their site where you can enjoy it in its entirety.

...If you missed the premier of their new album here on the radio, yet don't(or can't) get to their show on Friday at Turner Hall... then try catching them at their listening pary on Wednesday 3/5 at The Yield Bar (1932 E. Kenilworth)...

Also... the dubstep movement that has captured the attention of a number of my recent blogs as well as my dj sets is starting to get major press in the States and several of its major players were featured on this month's cover of XLR8R Magazine...2305698548_17b74bc476_m.jpg...Benga (who I blogged on last week)& Skream it seems. Here's a link to their site...enjoy.

If you are curious about what this dubstep stuff is all about, or are a fan there isan event coming up that's perfect for you. Friday March 14th is the date, the event is called SUBLOW and is hosted by DJ Screendoor and features some of the best dubstep dj's in Milwaukee. It's at the Y-Not III on Kenilworth behind Beans & Barley...see you there.
