Description

Lotus Plaza
Guitarist for Deerhunter by day, multi-intstrumentalist Lockett Pundt brings his shoegaze solo project to Madison. Lotus Plaza's sophomore LP, Spooky Action at a Distance, evokes feelings of floating through a dream through echoing, driving guitars. The album has received massive critical acclaim, labeled Best New Music by Pitchfork and securing them a spot in Pitchfork Music Festival.
Milk Music
Milk Music may be a young quartet from Washington, but someone may want to check if they made some kind of time-leap from the 80's punk scene. Howls, cymbal crashes, and fuzzy chords dominate their power-packed tunes. They have been labeled "Rising" by Pitchfork and the fact that their two releases thus far - the Beyond Living EP and Almost Live recording - have sold out makes their future debut LP a highly-anticipated release.
Dent May
Dent May won't be pigeon-holed, as he showed with his recent follow-up to 2009's The Good Feeling of Dent May & His Magnificent Ukulele. While incorporating his previous trademark of the ukulele into some songs, Do Things trades in the sparse, intimate instrumentation of its predecessor for dancey beats and synths. Released on Animal Collective's 'Paw Tracks' label, the two albums both feature May's fantastic, dreamy harmonies.
