Revisiting some of most underrated Milwaukee albums of the 2000s and 2010s

Every Thursday on Radio Milwaukee we — the Journal Sentinel’s Piet Levy and 88Nine’s Evan Rytlewski — talk about the music coming into Milwaukee and the music coming out of Milwaukee on Tap’d In.

This week we’re in a nostalgic mood. Radio Milwaukee is entering the final stretch of its spring membership drive, and all drive long we’ve been playing some of our favorite music of the 2000s and 2010s. That got us thinking about our favorite Milwaukee albums of those decades.

On this week’s Tap’d In, Piet and I discuss a handful of underrated or overlooked Milwaukee albums from that era (and a couple of widely celebrated ones we love, too.) We also reflect on our personal histories with the Milwaukee music scene and how the music scene has changed over the last 15 or 20 years, almost without exception for the better.
