Wisconsin Music – in person and name

  • Bon Iver – Justin Vernon wrote his album “For Emma, Forever Ago” in a Northwestern Wisconsin cabin.
  • Collections of Colonies of Bees – My good friend Jon plays drums in this Milwaukee-based group. They just returned from a SXSW performance, and a little bee told me that we are doing a project with Justin.
  • Juniper Tar – They get another piece of link love because I like them and their album a lot.
  • What Made Milwaukee Famous – Paste Magazine introduced me this month to this Austin-based band. The name is what first caught my attention, but their pop rock hooks drew me in.
  • The BoDeans – this master of the bar band genre is from my town of Waukesha. Find a live version of Still The Night; I have never heard a song where the audience has a part. Kurt and Sammy have a new album called Still, which is solid and familiar.
