The We Shared Milk Have a New Album. It's Heavy.

The We Shared Milk Have a New Album. It's Heavy.

The We Shared Milk are said to be a little eclectic. They have a solid foundation of rock, but also a lilt and experimental accents. New album, Lame Sunset, expresses heavy, infirmed themes and weighty bass among tapping cymbals. Many songs, like the title track, fluctuate with an echoing guitar that finishes in accelerated swirling melodies. Boone Howard's voice breaks in and out of clear skies and overcast distortion, incidentally sounding more 70's than the Caleb Followil nature of previous album History of Voyager and Legend Tripper. "Joe" speaks of pulling away in isolation, and almost sounds as if it might break into The 'Stones "Time is on Your Side". "Feeling Sick" is surprisingly uptempo. "Could This Be Real" is a little twisted, sometimes scraping and hoarse with huge drums pounding. The depression is cathartic, with the work as a whole seeking a kind of redemption from daily miseries in pretty, watery, ruminations.

We feel ya, guys. We feel ya.

Lame Sunset is available for a paywhat you want download and TWSM play their next venue show with A Happy Death and Boing at Kelly's Olympian on 4/27.  - Brandy Crowe
