What Made Milwaukee Famous


After waltzing gloriously onto the scene at 2005's South By Southwest festival, What Made Milwaukee Famous snagged a record deal and promptly rereleased its 2004 debut, Trying to Never Catch Up.

Dashing off a genteel, affected pop vibe — something the quartet manages without sounding too stylized — WMMF fuses pleasantly melancholy heart-on-sleeve lyrics with Michael Kingcaid's warm, George-Harrison-like voice.
