Hear Here presents: “Morning Light” vinyl release show

Sleepy Gaucho

(Milwaukee)

Sleepy Gaucho follows in the great American artistic tradition that is the rambler’s drawl. His Panamerican influenced folk music offers up a cocktail of wry existentialism and mellow introspection that floats somewhat aimlessly in a realm of its own. Born in Wisconsin while also growing up some time in Argentina, the young multi-instrumentalist’s music can at times be melancholic, at others ethereal, but always agreeable.

Since returning to his hometown of Milwaukee, he began the creative process for the two latest recording projects. For his sophomore record “Morning Light” he strayed away from the first record’s approach, recruiting the likes of veterans such as Patrick Sansone of Wilco and fellow talent ranging from local friends and Nashville session musicians, which releaed via Milwaukee based Hear Here Records in the middle of 2020.
“Sueños que Sobran” (“Leftover dreams” in English), is the latest release, and finds itself being a smooth fusion of sound and language, both English and Spanish, and is to be enjoyed by both languages and their cultures. The EP is out now via French label Nice Guys.

Motel Breakfast

(Chicago)

Motel Breakfast is a true Midwestern band, with members split between Chicago, Milwaukee, and Madison.

After three years of live shows in the Midwest, the band hit the studio in the summer of 2019 to record to tape at Treehouse Records in Chicago. Produced by Andy Goitia (of Milwaukee’s Sleepy Gaucho), the self-titled debut album (released 2/7/2020) combines some of their most polished songwriting yet with the high energy and chemistry of their live show, making for the first studio effort to give a proper snapshot of the group.

Left on Deming, the self-produced follow-up project, is a 6-track EP that was released one song at a time throughout the summer and fall of 2020. With studio goals of tracking live and keeping arrangements simple, the project was pieced together quickly over one summer weekend of recording. The full EP was released everywhere digitally on October 16, 2020.
