More Than Lights is Zach Combs, Unicus, Natalie Fine, Reuben Rodriguez, Matiu Unga, Corey Hess, and Joshua Jellyfish. Together, they make all sorts of fresh music. It brings together hippies, hip hop heads, hipsters, hamsters, and everyone else under the sun. The Electric Prescription For All Your Funky Illz, the band's first album, was released in November 2009. Their songs "Everywhere We Go"... and "Be With You" became infectious fan favorites across the Midwest along with the title track, "The Electric Prescription...".
Apollo Cobra!! With them they bring analog synthesizers, drum machines, bass guitars, samples, vocals, HUGE beats and MASSIVE dance parties across a small part of the globe. Apollo Cobra is a real 3 piece band creating what you hear on a stage without laptops. Old school!
On May 17, 2011 Minneapolis based Farewell Milwaukee released their sophomore album, When It Sinks In. Formed in 2008, Farewell Milwaukee has charted a course down familiar paths blazed by folks like Jackson Browne, Ryan Adams and the Jayhawks; all focused on the power of honest, confessional songwriting with no pretense or ulterior motives. Every winter Ben Lubeck (principal songwriter and lead singer) holes himself up in his lakeside home with the goal of writing as many songs as he can.
