Sleepy Gaucho

(Milwaukee, WI)
Genre: Psych

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.

Blacktop

(Milwaukee, WI)
Genre: Indie Rock
Blacktop is the independent recording project of Milwaukee-based multi-instrumentalist and producer, Austin Wood. Blacktop draws from a large pool of influence – from Ethiopian jazz and Latin rhythms of the 1960-70s to modern pop and alternative artists such as levitation room, Babe Rainbow, Skinshape, Loving, and Kate Bollinger. With nearly all recording, mixing, and production being done in Wood’s home studio, the music of Blacktop is adorned with gentle and dreamy vocals, washed-out guitars, and acoustic percussion and rhythmic elements. The project’s core is rooted in the spiritual and Zen philosophy of dwelling in the present moment, mindfulness, and impermanence. Blacktop is able to be heard through the airwaves on 889 Radio Milwaukee, and is featured on Lilliput Record’s “Local Milwaukee Showcase”. Blacktop’s latest full-length release, “Gardening is a Practice, Not an Idea”, is set to be released independently on September 1st, 2023.
