Catch the catchiness of Fuzzysurf on 414 Live

640 427

Fuzzysurf is composed of Sean Lehner (vox/guitar), Corey Murphy (keys), Ben Giddens (bass/vox), and Mike Roy (drums). Citing The Beatles, The Byrds, The Beach Boys, Blur, Weezer and Talking Heads as early musical influences, the group goal has always been the creation of a catchy song.

Fuzzysurf recently released their first single, “Problems“, from their upcoming album, “Fuzzy & The Surfs,” due out in May 2019. Mixing melodic British Invasion pop sensibilities, classic American surf and a splash of psychedelia, the new single and upcoming album showcase the band doing what they do best.

Listen to the dark, crystalline music of Rose of the West on 414 Live

640 427

Driving its hazy dream-currents of music are frosty synths, radiant warmth from guitar and piano, nimble bass lines and a tempestuous, gutsy kick from clear-cut percussion. Rose of the West leader, Gina Barrington, brings it all together with her crystalline, but sultry vocals, twisting and turning lyrics over like talismans. And no matter how dark, Barrington’s most desolate words always seem to hold the possibility of turning those single sparks into bright flames.

The full band is Thomas Gilbert on guitar and synthesizer, Erin Wolf on keyboard, vocals, harmonium, Cedric LeMoyne on bass and Dave Power on drums.

Right off the release of the band’s newest single “Roads,” Rose of the West gave us a taste of its debut album coming out on April 5, 2019 on Communicating Vessels.

Hear the ‘Midwestern music’ of Keith Pulvermacher on 414 Live

640 427

Keith Pulvermacher’s music isn’t quite country. It isn’t blues. It isn’t folk. It isn’t rock. He calls it “Midwestern” music.

His new release is called “45 Story” and is out now. “45 Story” is all about reconnecting with each other and reflecting on life, family and giving back.

So with the launch of the record, he also launched the Always Be Here For You charity campaign—named after a song on the album—where proceeds from his music will go to a different cause each month. He wants to raise money and resources for people with cancer, juvenile diabetes, autism, alzheimer’s, melanoma, FMD, among other causes. This month, he is giving back to the MACC Fund.

Hear more about his mission and listen to his new songs live in the player above.

Hear Amanda Huff cover LUXI on 414 Live

640 427

The diversity of sounds on “Hemiptera” is what earned Amanda Huff three Radio Milwaukee Music Awards. She deserved each one for best album, artwork and music video. Her creativity is unmatched in her genre and her voice in each song of this session proves it. Every one sounds like it could be by a different person, but they’re all Amanda Huff.

This makes her a hot commodity for collaborations. Earlier last year, she proved it with “Only in Dreams” where the cello by MSO artist Peter J Thomas is a match made in heaven (or some other spectral place) for Amanda and her otherworldly voice.

This month, she was back with an interesting collab for the Milwaukee Record’s Local Coverage show, where she put a spin on covers of LUXI’s music.

On 414 Live, she gave us a preview and covered “Space & Time” by LUXI.

Now, with an added bassist and drummer, the band’s new singles prove that their sound is a whole new indescribable experience. Listen for yourself here.
